Power seat motor broken

The shaft which conects the power seat motor to the gears on the opposite side of the seat has come apart. Is there a way to get the motor / shaft mechanism off of the seat frame to put it back together and re install it?

Yhea you have to disassemble the entire seat and order a new base for it. We have repaired a few of them at the shop. I have had one just welded back together but it never sits quite the way it used to.

2002 nissan maxima driver seat motor works on the right rail, but the left side is dead no sound and want to move on one rail only the right side

There is a cable that goes from the motor mounted on the right side rail that runs to a small gear box on the left rail, more then likely the cable has popped out of either the motor or the gear, it’s flexible and can be popped out fairly easily, even having bottles under your seat can cause this problem..

Drivers side power seat will not move. You hear the motor and seat tries to move but is stuck. How do you free the seat? Did not see any obstructions under seat.

The plastic gears in the motor break off a couple teeth. Dealer will try to sell you a new rack. You can also replace the motors and shafts, or you can replace just the gears. I just got done replacing one shaft and have the other one ordered. This seems to be the cheapest option.

Driver power seat not working correctly . 1997 Chevy Tahoe. Driver seat will go up and down and starts to go back but stops and doesn't go forward make a zzzzzzzzzzznoise. Worked fine yesterday today it...

this can be a few things, you may have a bad motor, or a broken cable to motor or seat track and last maybe a broken track, the best way to diagnose would be to remove the seat flip it over while still conected,meaning; remove the bolts at the bottom of the seat then push seat back toward the rear seat this way you can see the track, now move the controls as you watch the track,it may go sideways instead of straight back or foward this will show you what side is not working from there you can see if its a cable broken or track or motor not turning .

How to replace the rear door lock actuators?

My son and I both have Proteges, and we had this problem also. There is a nylon gear that the shaft sheers off of, usually in cold weather. We went to the auto wrecker and got relacement actuaors for $10 each and replaced them. The hardest part is learning to take the door panels off. I just did a web search for this and found clear instructions. On my son's car we were only able to get the actuator motor from the opposite side (they are specific to each door) so we carefully took it apart, and changed the gear only, as the gears are identical in all the doors. The housing is what is different for each door.

Power seat moves on 1 side only

Look very careful inside the track and see if anything is interfering with the gear mechanism. It doesn't take much to lodge in there and cause the gear to lock up. If everything is clear, there is a cable that attaches the motor to the gear, that cable may be stretched or broken.

Power Drivers seat stuck in partial recline

If it's anything like seats in GM's there is only one motor for each "function". They use a small gear box, with shafts and gears to distribute the movement to both sides of the seat. You will see a few motors under the seat also. Depending on how they made them, the recline motor may be under there too.

The cost will vary, and that's only IF a replacement part is available. Sometimes you have to get awhole new seat (some leather Caddy seats are close to $2500 EACH - ouch). You can always scour ebay (just do a search for "concorde seat" - theres actually a guy selling the entire lower rail assembly as i'm writing this)

Some seats have a factory unzippable cover. This may or may not allow you access to poke around in there.

I would check for any obstruction caught up in the pivot of the seat or near the area where the shafts / gears meet the tilt mechanism. It could be anything really, but coins tend to be the majority of the culprits! I've found that trying to lay on your head to find them is a pain, and you always miss something. It's easier to unplug the power to the seat, take out the 4 bolts, and turn the seat upside down in the driveway and shake out whatever is caught up in it.
