Question about 2007 Hyundai Sonata 2.0

1 Answer

Driver side recliner only goes one way

The recliner only goes up, not down, needless to say, it has given me a very uncomfortable ride lately. The forward and backward motors work. I have little to no electrical experience, and have no clue where to go for a new one.

Sounds like the switch is broken. You probably have to go to an auto wrecker and get a used switch to replace it with. Some popular cars have new switches sold on the internet. Your last option is buying a new switch from the dealer which is typically the most expensive option. Changing the switches is pretty easy.

    Also, is there a technical name for the switch, or should I just search for (car model) recliner switch?

Hi tlocker,

Sorry to tell you, but if we're talking about an electrically operated seat, there's no short cut....The seat will have to be removed and then you'll have to sort out why the motor reversal does not work....Could be a bad connection..... If it's a manual operation then you'll have to find out where its stuck....

Best regards Johngee10

SOURCE: My 2006 Hyundai Sonata driver side power seat

the switch in the drivers seat is bad. very common. if you had access to some good jumper wires you could jump across the motor circuit and make the seat go up but you would have to be a good " doityourselfer" . that switch isn't hard to replace though. you will also need a new sunvisor. it should be held up with two screws that are hidden by a plastic trim piece.

Power Recliner
The driver seat has an electro-mechanical backrest adjuster. The backrest adjustment switch is located on the side of the seat cushion side shield and is part of the seat control switch. The recliner motor is mounted to the backrest frame. Power recliners and motors are only serviceable by installing a new backrest frame assembly.

You make up seat back stops out of some type
of hard plastic to move the seat back forward

If you have no stops on each corner, then the seat
comes out,upholstory off & some TIG Welding takes

You could shim the rear mounting brackets
on the floor but that is sort of crude & the bottom
cushion will feel odd

How to replace recline motor on driver seat for 2006 pacifica


If you pop the back panel off your seat on the bottom right hand side you will find the motor for the recline and it has one T30 bolt and a shaft going through the center witch if you remove the clip on the right side of the shaft it will slide out far enough to remove the motor.Follow the wire down to the bottom of the seat almost to the floor the plug is there. When putting in the new motor it is easiest to have some one help you by pushing the button back and forth to line up the shaft and bolt hole.hope this helps you out.
