Q: Driver's seat not moving

asked by on

The driver's seat is not moving. It looks like the thing under the seat is busted.

A: The "thing under the seat" could ...

The "thing under the seat" could be the seat frame, or power motor assembly. The lower power seat is a separate part from the seat itself and may need to be replaced. The power seat frame is not a serviceable item, and is only replaceable. I recommend having a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, inspect your inoperative power seat to see if a complete replacement is needed, or not.
