I will send to local upholstery shop  seats from my 63 sedan deville.

 I guess I should remove tracks with all electric gear so I can restore it etc.

My seat had power but it didn't moved forward or back.What lubrication I should use for seat transmission etc? Any tips to restore seats ?Thank you,Paul

Do a search of the help section. I think Jason Edge and others have some good tutorials on what and how to do it. 

The tracks on the seats usually get gummed u with dust and dirt. The horizontal movement rides on phenolic blocks, so a spray of silicone lube will suffice.  The tilt actuators depending on the year are gear or shaft driven. A spray of white lithium grease will do there.

lean the parts off with a spray can of brake parts cleaner.

The actual power pack to the power seat has different components that can malfunction. Just because you are getting power to the seal, doesn't say much.  Be sure the motor spins. If not, you will need to troubleshoot by it does not. Either a bad relay or a bad motor. next is the transmission. The grease inside gums up and stops the slides from moving.   A cleaning and relube will suffice. I use spray silicone on the sliders, and wheel bearing grease on the gears.  

Do not take the power pack to the upholstery shop. They will break it, somehow.

Clovis and Russ are as always giving good advise. But you might find it handy to learn how this website is working.

The two pages you will most likely find the stuff you need is "Help" and "Parts Suppliers". The rest is also good information and should be looked on.

Step 1.

Step 2, scroll down to the topic you are looking for:

When I'm new to a website I never check "Help", as in my simple mind Help contains instructions on how to use the website.

However "Help" on 6364cadillac.ning.com is the go to place. Look here first. If you don't find a solution and solved the problem please post a good description WITH pictures and Jason will tag it to "Help" thereby helping other members in the future. It is the best library for our cars. And used by others when sorting out the non-63/64 Cadillacs as well.

Excellent HELP Anders!

Thank you for all advice.

Brighter Headlights. What to install that won't draw too much current.

My car still has its "T-3"headlamps and they shed poor, yellow-tinted light. I'd like to replace them with something that most folks on this web site use, that would shed good light and don't heat up the wiring with too many amps. 

Survey says?

I recently took my car to a “Cadillac” “Specialist here in Los angles CA.

After leaving my car to diagnose my steering column for not shifting properly. I get this txt from the shop owner. Mind you I just got the car and wanted to at least shift from the column without having to shift for the engine bay. Also wanted to get a price on dash lights to work. Basically I’m trying to feel out if he’s putting gravy on the labor.

Although the radiator was not leaking, nor was the car running hot, I tool out the radiator today to have it boiled out and rodded out. Then I changed the oil and filter (filter is very easy to reach with the radiator out), then the thermostat got changed. 

I'll have the radiator back from the shop on Monday, and will reinstall it then. 

Still having…
