Question about 2001 Toyota Camry
Drivers seat has motorized power move forward and backward but not higher or lower for drivers height adjustment
Probably the switch-spray with wd40 or electric spray cleaner and wiggle it-if not gotta remove seat completely to check motor,etc

There are numerous small motors in the seat mechanism that control the seat movement, and these motors can either go bad or have connection problems.
If you can isolate the problem to which of these motors is the culprit, you can likely get another motor at a salvage yard. They are probably also available from Toyota, but you might get sticker shock when they quote the price.
A motor in the power seat of a 93 Lexus LS 400 that I owned went out, and Lexus was asking $300.00 for a replacement. I purchased an entire seat from a salvage yard for $75.00 and got far more motors than I needed.

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.

This could just be a simple switch issue
Try finding a replacement switch and testing it out i am sure it won't cost much and may save you repairing/replacing seat motors

Need to remove seat and check the drive cable from the motor to the affected side. May need to be reconnected or replaced. Make sure you disconnect battery as seats have side air bags in them.
