    I purchased my 2023 Tundra, 1794 Edition, 3 months ago. I have been experiencing problems with the driver's seat leg support repeatedly not working. The dealer fixed it a couple of times, even replacing the bottom frame of the seat. The last time I had it fixed I was told that I can't push the support all the way up or down because there is no mechanical stop and it will run off the track and stop working. At this time, that is Toyota's fix for the problem. Has anyone else experienced this?

    All comments are welcomed.

    Thanks,
    Scott

    Take it to another dealer.

    I've heard of this thigh extender to stop working or working intermittently on some of the trucks... And dealer would replace the unit to fix it. These issues doesn't seem to be frequent on the forum so I assume it's not as common.

    I've been lucky enough with mine to always work and I never have to think twice about extending it all the way out or in... Never heard that you aren't supposed to be doing this. Some bs

    Mine stopped working twice in the all the way down position. I jiggled the wire, pushed on the seat and pushed the button all at the same time and it started working fine again. I wont take it all the way down again though.

    I had mine stop working after I raised the seat up trying to find a way for a 6 foot tall person to see out of the truck lol...found the best compromise I could and then the cushion extender wouldn't work...took it to the dealer, showed the check in guy, the service writer went out to confirm and came back in 2 minutes to show me it worked...you do have to hold the button for a second...IDK.

    I noticed when I first got mine that if I keep it all the way in and leaving it there, it seems to "stick". I started to run it in then extend it out just a hair and I never had a problem with it since.

    Ok. Mine worked intermittently at first but now not at all. I’ll try to bang it, fram it, rattle wires as others have suggested. Is it just me, or is it concerning that this forum is riddled with new owners coming up with diy tricks to overcome lack of fit and finish by Toyota on a 70k truck?

    I've had my Platinum Tundra since 08/2023....the seat leg extender button is intermittent at best....I read this thread yesterday....tried adjusting the leg extender last night... Nothing...I definitely hear clunks and thunks in the seat bottom...nothing extends though....

    THEN this AM, start up my Tundra, immediately try to adjust the seat extender....WORKED AS INTENDED.... What's up TOYOTA?!
