A damaged or broken seat adjuster assembly on the seat bottom can cause the seat to rock back and forth and possibly squeak. It can also cause the seat to not adjust forward or backward, or up and down.

    Both sides of the drivers side seat rocks back and forth when braking or speeding up. I think the gears in the seat are worn out. Went into Nissan and was quoted $1500 to fix, I have been looking online and see DIY with new gears but from looking at my Murano I do not think they have the parts for 2009. If they do it "should" take 2 hours to fix and $130 for the parts. Just upset that everyone is having this problem and Nissan will not order a recall and fix the problem.

    My seat moves a little when I hit the breaks. I thought maybe it was a bolt that needed to be tightened. Now I know that's not the case. Just one more thing I need to look forward to with this vehicle. I will never buy another nissan for as long as I live. I have had so many problems.

    Seat will not move forward or back. It tries but acts like something is stuck in one of the rails.....nothing there.

  • Driver's side seat Bracket broke, while I was driving. It slanted suddenly. I had to replace that part, because the broken part is too thin to be welded again. Bought replacement part (120.00) on e-bay and had an upholstery guy do it for me.

    Same problem as all these other complaints. My wife said her seat was "rocking"....,"like a bolt was loose or something". I looked and found a broken mounting bracket (part of the frame that connects seat to the floor rails. The metal bracket was broken in half! It looked to be a thin gauge and unsubstantial to take the strain of even an average weight person getting in & out of the seat hundreds or thousands of times over the life of the car. It broke about two years ago, when the SUV was only 7 years old. I found the part to replace this online, and was ridiculously expense, at least 1,100.00 if I recall. I contacted Nissan about this and they said it was not a recall issue. Seems like a load of crap to me. Bean Counters probably advised Nissan it would be too costly (no wonder!!). This is a lawsuit waiting to happen, especially when somebody gets thrown through their windshield. Fortunately I have a friend that is a mechanic. With some basic tools and some free help from a friend that can weld, we fashioned a splint from some angle iron and welded this against the old broken bracket, stronger than before. Only worried that eventually the other side will need to be done. Cost, only the gas to get to is shop.

    The drivers seat rocks and feels loose on the left side of seat. It's very dangerous when turning a turn, due to the movement of the seat. A very large repair estimate.

    Driver's side seat will not move forward/backward properly. It feels like it is off its track. Haven't gotten an estimate but sounds like it is way more than I am willing to pay for the fix.
