Question about Honda Pilot

2008 Honda Pilot Driver's Seat motor is really loud when moving the seat forward and back. Sounds grinding and like it's working really hard. I'm afraid it's going to stop working. Any suggestions on how to fix it?

It sounds like the gear on the motor or the seat track is chewing itself up and it will break but it might break next time you use it or it may last a year but it will break. I would try and find a happy place so that all drivers can be sorta comfortable to make it last a bit more because that will be an expensive repair.

Check to see if something is caught up in the slide areas of the seat track.
There would be no need to grease anything.
Let me know if there is or isnt something in the way down there.

SOURCE: Drivers electic seat will not adjust

I just had the same problem. When the seat is powered all the forward, one of the worm drives reached the end of its travel and jammed against the threaded block that it passes through. To fix this the seat has to be unbolted and tipped back. There are four tiny 6mm bolts that hold the motor plate in. Remove these and the motor will come out. The worm drive is bolted in at one end and has a set pin at the other. Remove the worm drive and use a couple of vice grips or equivalent to loosen the threaded block from the worm drive.

SOURCE: Driver's seat unable to move forward or backward

There are plastic gears connecting the track to the seat assembly. Whne one of these strip the seat will only work or move to one side. Infiniti does not sell a simple fix. You are looking at buying an entire seat assembly complete with the module for all the electronics. It will be at a cost of around $950 - $1000. Once that is in, Infiniti must program the seat to the brain of the car, only then can you reset your memory settings.

2008 sebring convertable frt.driver seat does not back and forth


this seat likely has two different motors to operate these functions and the one that slides it back and forth could either have a bad fuse or could be bad. when hitting the button that should operate this function put your ear near the bottom of the seat and listen for any type of noise coming from the motor. if it sounds as if its trying to move your motor is likely seized. if you can spin the motor over manually it may free it up and you could never end up having to replace it.

Automatic driver seat broken, how to fix/cost


The back and foward movement uses the same motor. So if it moves one way but not the other it's most likely the switch. Try to blow it out or clean it out. If pop or somthing spilled on it you will prob. need to pull switch out and take it apart to clean contacks inside.

Hi,
Does the seat move while driving when you hit a bump?
When you make it move by pushing it, are you moving the WHOLE seat or just the SEAT BACK? Could it be the forward/back lean that's 'loose'?

Also, I'd try moving the seat ALL the way FORWARD and then ALL the way BACK to ensure it's on its rails. When it's @ each extreme, see if one position has more 'play'/movment than another.

Do you share the RAV w/another driver that changes the seat too? It could be gettting worn from constant adjustment (I doubt it, but a thought).

GL,
TD
