This could be a cog slipped off the motor if so have a look for the clips holding the upholstery on and take them off and see if you can observe the motor turning and make sure it is contacting with the cog if it is this may mean it could be worn and need a new one but carefull not to get your fingers caught.

Power seat in chevy 03 avalance not working

Check the fuse, make sure it isn't damaged/blown. Check the connectors that go to the seat to make sure that it has power going to it. If you hear noise when trying to move the seat it has power, and is probably a bad seat motor and will have to be replaced.

No heat on a 2003 galant. Could hear grinding

Call dealer service rep explain noise and I'll bet he suggests your heater control valve motor has failed. I just replaced mine 3 months ago. Same sympthoms. I could only get motor from dealer. and Had someone in my area who specializes in auto a/c work install it. It came out to be about $300. But you have to have heat!

How to open the cover of power driver seat on 2003 Camry

Before you remove the cover take a flashlight and look very closely that nothing is obstructing the track, something as small as a coin could keep the seat from moving in whichever direction if it is obstructed. I will add more to this just in case, doing some research on it now, but in the meantime let us know by clicking solved if you tried it and it fixed it, thanks, Hope this will work,

Electric front seat stuck

the first thing to do is remove the plastic skirt around rhe seat,to do this remove the seat movement knobs by prying them off with screwdriver,gental steady pressure works,then remove the screw in the rear( back seat compartment),three screws at seat switches and the side skirt will pull out (four tabs are connected to the mating plastic pieces,pull outtoward you). two screws hold the front skirt on these are tough to get to they are at an angle. with this skirt removed you can get to the motor,
three screws remove the the motor (Isuggest unplugging motor,small connector) on each end of shaft are retaining bushings rotate them toward the back and they will disengage,you can now pick up the motor and the the shafts will come out with it.these shafts disengage from the motor and should be kept seperate (greasey)
I used a R2 square drive bit (the driver used to install deck screws) to find which screwdrive is jammed, I adjusted the other one to its front stop with square driver bit the worked the jammed one back and forth mostly toward the rear and it worked free.
I adjusted this one to the front stop and reassembled the motor,shaft(make shure to snap retaining bushing in place)reconnect motor connector,all plastic skirts AND NEVER ALLOW THE SEAT TO TRAVEL TO ITS FRONT STOP AGAIN. (4HRS)

Sounds like a motor, or a s stuck mechanism. Either way the door panel must come off and this is no easy task.
