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

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.

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.

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...
