Google "used oldsmobile parts", that will take you to vendors who take them apart and sell the parts off one by one. You may have a large auto recycler close by and i would start by searching their website, often you can search their inventory on line. I live in appalachia and we have two local junkyards with web searchable inventories so this service should be everywhere in civilized US. plus a search will show you how many other GM power seats will fit that year and model. You are going to want a used seat, and you do not want to ship it, there are no new seats and to repair an old seat is not feasible as there are no parts and would cost far more than a serviceable used one. you want the newest, and lowest mileage donor vehicle you can find. the electric motor in that seat, and in all other seats, is going to die eventually from use and age, just like the whole car. if possible i would find a manual seat, just bolt it in the same mounting holes and live with it as a replacement power seat is going to die eventually also. you may have to get seat covers to make them all match.
It depends on how bad everything is, you could need new foam, seat material, headliner, door panels, carpet, etc. It coulkd cost anywhere from $500- $1000 dollars. Your best bet would be to find a Donor Car at a Salvage yard and take out what you need.
the seat is held into the floor by four bolts, two at the front and two at the back, you need to slide the seat right back all the way so you can see the 2 front bolts their is one either side and they are in the metal runner and then the same with the back slide it forward as far as you can and you should see the two back bolts.
if they just turn without undoing then you need to get some one else to help you and go under the car and hold a spanner on the nut under neath it should be a fixed nut and should undo from inside the car.
if their are any electrics then they are held in to a block connector just under the seat unclip this and you should be ok.
their may be caps on top of the bolts so if you cant see them then look for caps the bolts should be far forward in either side of the runner so it should be right at the front.
simple, remove the headrest,move the seat forward fully remove the bolts 15 or 18 mm heads that hold the rear of the seat track move the seat rearward remove the final 2 bolts holding the seat set the seat as far forward as possible and remove the seat after unplugging any electrical connectors of corse
There is a fuse and or a relay you need to be looking for. Also for the fuse to be blown something has had to have shorted out. It could have been water causing the short or you have a bad wire somewhere grounding out.
