1992 Honda Accord Question: Driver seat problem

I have a 92 Accord. The driver seat reclines as soon as you lean back, if I push down hard on the seat adjuster lever, I can keep it from reclining. What do I need to do or look at to fix this. Thanks

    The seat recline depends on a "ratchet and pawl mechanism" in the seat itself. Either this mechanism is damaged or the frame of the seat itself is damaged. The seat cover/upholstery would have to be removed to inspect it properly. It may be a cheaper alternative to source a new seat from a wrecking yard. The seat itself is easily removed from the car with just a few basic hand tools.
