SOURCE: stuck front passenger seat - wont slide back or forwards due to small screw lodged in floor runner

Be there done that, but with a penny. All you can do is either get real aggressive with a hammer and long metal object as a punch or pull the seat. The seat should have 4 bolts. One at each end of each track. Ising a 1/4 in drive rachet and either a 1/2 or 9/16 socket should work. 1/4 in drive is low profile.. good luck

SOURCE: 2001 VW Beetle. The driver's front seat adjuster

I'm assuming you have manual adjustment seats. There is a spring underneath the seat that locks the end of the lever into corresponding notches in the seat frame rail. That spring has either fallen off or broken.

SOURCE: Driver's seat stuck. Lumbard support works,

HI. There are only two causes for this particular issue. The most common will be a failed switch assembly. This should be located on the side of the drivers seat. This switch is responsible for transferring the movement commands to the actual motor/gear assembly, which is located on the rail structure under the seat in question. If your lumbar section is responding to commands, but the others fail, this will lead to a failed switch circuit. the entire switch board will need to be replaced, in this case.

Now, if you command the set to move forward, and all you hear is the motor running , but no movement, this will lead to a failed gear assembly. This will be the second cause of no forward/backwards movement. In this case, the entire motor/gear assembly will need to be replaced, due to the fact that the gears are not sold separately. The are shipped as a kit with the motor.


It is required that you order this type of replacement part directly from the dealership.



  • NOTE_ I have seen in most cases that the there was jam, due to pieces of the gear assembly breaking off, and jamming up the mechanism. in order to properly inspect for damage of this nature, it will be necessary to remove the seat.

SOURCE: My drivers side power seat moves slides back and

No the adjusters for power seat are made from some steel and a lot of aluminum parts. Replacing the seat tracks are your only option to be safe for they are riveted together

This is not necessary...as many have stated...use a hammer with switch in reverse position. Hammer the seat back...it will catch...

How can I manually change the position of a power seat without power?


you would have to disconnect the motor drive but it isnt like the old days where there were grooves to put the adjuster into, the motor shaft holds the position.

Passenger seat will not slide forward


there will be bars underneath the seat that are supposed to go across to unlock both sides so that the seat can move forward and back, try having someone pull the lever and see if you can see from behind the bar that moves and figure out what it corresponds to on the opposite side. you should be able to move it by hand, release the lock and set the seat where you want it, as for a permanent fix, most seats are not difficult to remove, typically four bolts, although some take specialty tools like large torx bits, and i would imagine the bar is replaceable

Driver Seat in 2005 Pilot is stuck. Motor sounds, options work beyond sliding back and forth. If seat is taken out, how hard is it to find an object and to get out -if for example a coin is stuck. No...


Hi Robert, Everyone starts somewhere! Detach the cable connectors under the seat and then remove the two bolts holding the front of the rail and the two from the rear. Remove the seat turn it upside down and have a look. I cannot tell what if anything is stuck there, it may be a defective motor. Regards John

DRiver's seat won't slide forward nor to the rear


on the 99 the front seats are identical. assuming there was little change in 2000 you unbolt both seats and move the passenger seat over to the driver side. while it is out, you set the sliders manually to be in the middle position and the passenger seat will be stuck there. If you can get light up inside there you will see a cable connector has released at one end meaning it will not release the dog to permit sliding so you may have to pull it manually with a vise grip in order to move the seat forward on the sliders to get at the bolt heads in the rear. unplug the battery before you unplug the seats.

Go under the seat and check both slide tracks for anything jamming it up...I've removed gloves, socks, candy boxes etc from tracks. Also if its not a power seat, check that when you move the release lever it is connected by a stiff wire to the opposite side. That wire releases the right side track. If broken or stretched, it wont.

Power seat switch


It is most definitely the seat slide motor. Most infiniti drivers seats have three different motors. I30, I35's and QX4's all had problems with the seat slide motors. You can tap on the slide motor which is under the front of the seat and it will probably work for a little while, but it WILL stop working completely. There was actually a Technical Service Bulletin regarding this issue because there were so many vehicles that had this problem. I hate to see that guy waste money trying to get a circuit board rebuilt that absolutely will not solve the problem.
