1996 Mercedes SL Power seat problem

When adjusting passenger seat to go backwards or up/down, the seat went forward and is now stuck all the way forward. I can hear a clicking sound but the seat won't move backwards.

Back of seat adjustment


at the front of your seat(left side for the driver seat & right side for the passenger seat)rite at the curved corner in front of the seat beside your knees, the cloth seat has a hard plastic corner guard over the top directly in the middle of the corner in the front of the seat, and smack in the center is a up & down switch similar to that of the back seat window switch. it is well hidden & I had to have my head down there to discover it in the year2010, on a 1996 auto. the previous owner of the car did not believe me.

2009 impala driver side power seat won't move up/down, makes whirring sound when attempted. Moves forward backward. Passenger seat works properly.


Before you do any of the expensive things disconnect and reconnect the wiring to the seat I had the same exact problem with my 2009 Chevy Impala and was ready to take it to the dealer when I disconnected the power cables to it and reconnected them I found that one of the Harnesses was loose and the problem was solved

The power seat adjuster has stopped moving the seat forward/backward but will adjust the seat up/down. I can't find anything obstructing its path. Is there a simple explanation for this? Jeep Liberty 2002.


Those power seats have two power motors. One moves it up and down. The one that moves the seat forward and backwards must have gone bad. Have it checked and replaced if necessary.

The drivers seat (back/headrest) will not adjust. Front passenger seat will not go forward or backward


Sounds like you need to recalibrate your seat, but because you can't move it forward I don't think you will be able to. You might want to try and pull the fuse for the seat affected and see if it starts working again. If not then it might be time to replace the motors.

Passenger seat back will not move either direction


Motor on the seat may have gone out, contacts in switch got dirty or worn, or assembly reached limit and stuck. Try sitting in it pushing back hard and adjust. If not youll need to replace switch,b take seat apart to fix or replace.
