How To

How To


  1. Lay down a drop sheet on the floor in front of the recliner chair.
  2. Carefully turn the recliner over on its front side to gain access to the recliner underneath, please remember safe lifting techniques.
  3. Remove the rocker base via the screws. If the base has rocker springs use wedges to keep the correct spring width whilst removing and reinstalling the base.
  4. Next twist the timber base to unhook the pawl from the release link bar.
  5. Then remove the original pawl from the timber base via the 2 torx head screws.
  6. Position the replacement pawl on the timber base and reinstall the 2 torx screws into the same original holes.

  8. Remove the 3 torx bolts and pawl rack.
  9. Position the replacement rack against the board and reinstall the 3 torx bolts, we recommend you partially install the top torx bolt first and then fully install the bottom 2 bolts next and then return to the top bolt and complete the install.
  10. Reattach the upholstery covering.
  11. Then using the timber base and hook on the pawl release link bar to the new pawl and position the timber base next to the rocker springs and then reinstall the torx bolts to secure the base to the rocker spring assemblies.

Why does my La z boy keep dropping down?

Its likely that the metal pawl cap is loose or missing completely, this will cause the rack teeth to go blunt and loose grip. You will need to replace both the pawl and pawl rack assembly to fix the issue.

Is this a genuine part?

Yes, We purchase these parts from the official La z boy factory, so you can be assured of quality and compatibility with your furniture.

How do I replace these parts?

Please see the 'How to' instructions located on our main page.

How do I know this is the correct part for my chair?

1, Check under your chair to see if your pawl cap is missing or loose.
2, Again check if your chair has the same looking parts as this product picture.
3, Reach our to us via FB messenger, email or telephone to ask one of our skilled technical team members.

Why can't my La z boy recline?

There are few reasons why the chair may not recline, one might be the pawl cap and rack are faulty, the tension spring has dislodged or handle has broken. Why not send us pictures for further help!

My part number is different will this work?

If your parts visually look the same then this set will be compatible.

I could not be happier! I thought that my couch was beyond saving but now it looks great. So easy to use, I wish I had done it much sooner.

Sofa Rehab

Had Sofa Rehab recommended to me by a repairer as I had a broken handle on my old recliner. They had all the dimensions on their website, so that I could ensure I was getting the right size. Well priced and speedy delivery and very easy to install. Couldn't be happier.

Sofa Rehab

Needed transformer for our Plush sofa (Plush couldn't supply one for 3 weeks!) left a message with Sofa Rehab and was contacted that day, very helpful. Transformer arrived a day later; very happy as sofa now working fine and impressed with service, delivery and advice.

Sofa Rehab

Great service!! Order new controller for lift chair on Saturday morning and received it on Tuesday!! Will certainly recommend this company.

Sofa Rehab

The product is the same as the original. Easy to install and great fast service from Sofa Rehab. The coiled plastic on the original part was disintegrating exposing the wires and now with the new control part the chair is as good as new!!
