I found this post area while looking for a way to fix my stuck 2001 Camry LE drivers seat. Sure enough, while engaging the seat motor (it could be heard making an initial clikc), I hit the front rails a coupel time prettysolidly with a rubber mallet. That fixed it!

Thanks to all for providing a quick fand easy way to get the seat moving again!

    I used a rubber mallet and on the third hit the seat started to go back. It now works but there is a sort of grinding noise when it operates not quiet and smooth like before.

    It has stuck once more- and hitting the rail worked again. I try not to back it all the way to the stops, which seems to help. It should only take one good hit with the motor trying to push to free it up.

I was having the exact same problem. I pushed the driver's side power seat all the way forward to look for something under the chair. I tried everything to push it back but I couldn't. So, I tried solution # 3 in this blog and it actually work for me.

I have same exact car and problem... dealer diagnosed the as a stripped gear... the replacement part is $1000 ... no joke, the dealer would repair for $1300+. I'm looking for another option

    I just found the solution ... and it worked on my Camry car seat.

    get a hammer..... while pushing switch to make seat go back ... hit black metallic rail/track ... the third time I hit the rail, the seat engaged and went back

    and the dealer wanted $1300+ to replace a stripped gear!

    apparently this is a "common" problem with this power seat if you put the seat all the way forward... don't you think a Toyota service department would know this? perhaps they did!

    IF THE SEAT OPERATION IS NOISY AFTER BEING STUCK, THEN THE PLASTIC DRIVE GEAR AT THE FRONT OF THE TRACK IS STRIPPED AND/OR BROKEN. THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM, BUT THE GEAR IT SELF IS NOT AN AVAILABLE PART. THE SEAT FRAME IS THE ONLY PROPER FIX FROM THE DEALER. SEATS ARE AVAILABLE USED. THE GEAR ITSELF IS DIFFICULT TO ACCESS IF YOU PLAN ON REASSEMBLING IT. I HAVE NOT FOUND ANY GEARS AVAILABLE.

I am having the same problem. Maybe Toyota needs to have a recall on the driver seat in the Camry.

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.

Why does driver side power seat suddenly just move back and forth for only about a 1/4 of an inch?


These devices use motors with worm gears to provide the smooth operation and torque necessary to move the seat. The most common problem, other than the motors themselves failing (and since your does move somewhat, the motor is probably OK), the next biggest issue is something gets caught in the gear drive. Get a good look under the seat and see if there isn't something jamming the forward-backward motion of the seat.

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

Hi everyone I own a CLK200 Kompressor 2002 model. I have the following problem, driver seat moving forward when pressing backward function on the power seat button. I already checked the fuse in the trunk...


First try as fallow, get in to the seat, then keep tight your foot on floor and give a good press backward to the seat and operate the seat switch towards back, just release and do it again keep going that way it will start to move back words, if it start to move do it few time and do it every time you get in to the car at least two time per day continue it for one week, It will be OK otherwise need chassis no for more information,

Broken power seat - cannot slide backward. Can I slide it manually?


Ck for debri or other objwcts in way of tracks Does it try to move? If so, there is an obstruction, If not trying or no sound when switch is moved, could very well be a fuse or the forward limit switch is being affected by excess forward travel. Move the switch yo back and without kinda help it. if it's trying.

I am sorry but there is no way to operate the seat without power function working unless you take the whole thing apart.
