Call an autorecycler and ask them to find you a replacement seat. The doodads which make these car cost more have a short life span. If you want long life, stay with plain jane stuff. You need a new seat motor and a replacement used seat will cost less than a new seat motor and the cost to swap a seat in and out will cost less than the labor to take the seat out repair it and then put it back together.

Drivers not moving


If the controls still work to move the seat up and down and the seat back forward and back then you've ruled out a fuse. The switch could be faulty, could be a broken wire to the motor or the motor itself could be bad.

Driver power seat


The automatic driver's seat may have been programed not to move forward when the key is in and go back when it's taken out. Or are you saying it doesn't move forward, back and not at all from the control on door panel?

I have an 03 lincoln navigator the driver seat wont go forward or backward it can only go up and down, but every time touch the switch i hear a click, what can be my problem and what can be done to solve...


Most Ford products are designed so the seat belt latch by the center console moves with the seat. The bottom of the latch rides on the seat rail, and with time sometimes it builds up a little play on the rail. As the seat moves forward or back, the seat belt guide often tilts forward or back, just a bit, on the rail, and gets stuck. So you can move forward or back just a bit, but then it jams and you can hear the motor, but can go no further.

The long term fix is to remove the seat, disassemble the seat belt guide and rail, and usually replace some parts.

But the short term solution is often to simply hold on to the seat belt latch and rock it forward and away from the seat as you try to go forward or back. Or, sometimes it works best to rock it backwards and away from the seat as you try to move forward or back. It all depends on which way it is binding.

There's no guarantee that it won't jam again if you move it all the way back or forward, but once you find the right position to hold the seat latch in while moving the seat, you should be able to re-adjust it where you need it to be.

Driver's side front seat won't move


It is likely the gear on the motor came off track with the seat. The seat will have to be removed and bottom panel disassembled.

The electronic control for moving the seat back


Sometimes a coin gets trapped in the track, remove the seat and check, and clean and lube the track, some times all it needs is a little lube, or it might be the seat motor that is bad, you have to unbolt the seat to find out.

Power front seat won't go back and forth


U will have to replace the entire power seat transmission, there is no other way to get the part, I know it sucks but that is the way it is, try finding a used unit, or swap the passenger side to the drivers side.
