Question about 2003 Buick Park Avenue
We have a 2003 Buick Park Avenue and the Driver Seat will go back and forth but won't go up and down. Would you know what we could do to possibly fix it or what part we would need to purchase to get it up and running again?
I am working on a solution motor that comes with a new gear and shaft. I have replaced one of them in my 02 Buick and have parts ordered to replace the other one. These are built with larger gears than the original plastic ones. They are still plastic but seem to work well and don't take the skill needed to replace the plastic gear with the brass one. I hope to take video when I replace the other motor in another couple weeks and upload it to youtube.

After months of looking I found a shop who was willing to make me some brass gears. I put the brass gear in both my 2002 Park Ave seats. They work great. I sell them for 100 apiece. firstname.lastname@example.org

I rebuild my own plastic gears with liquid plastic moulding. I just poured the plastic moulding material in the area where the teeth had stripped and then recut the teeth. I think the new material is stronger than the original but I haven't had it in the car long enough to know how long it will last.

As they pointed out, the motors run fine. What we need is a replacment shaft with the attached gear. The plastic gears tend to sheer off the teeth with any load at all. If anyone finds a replacment gear, please post.

First check the fuses .......then check the motor if it is electric ..push the button and listen to see if the motor is running if not could be the fuses of the motor ....
i hope this helps out have a great day
