I am at my whits end trying to fix my drivers side front seat. I believe the gears are stripped because the cable fixes haven't done anything. Can anybody recomend any replacement or aftermarket type seat that I can replace my stock seats with? Love to keep it stock but I love driving it even more and it is very uncomfortable with current seating situation.

I haven't heard of the gears being stripped out before. Did you do the cable fix like shown here? http://bellsouthpwp.net/m/i/miales/seatcablesfix.htm Even if it was the motor its not like you can't go to a junk yard and get you another one and keep your seats :) Here is another link if the seat is twisted and you need to straighten it up http://www.nmia.com/~dgnrg/page_11.htm

I believe the worm gears are stripped. I get not action after doing the before mentioned fixes.

Not to offend your work, but you may not have cut enough off the sheath or the cap didn't get pushed all the way one (I did that in haste and when I pushed the cap on all the way I was like, oh thats better:)). Try unhooking the cables again, then making sure the cable is engaging the motor and rotated it with your fingers, if the seat moves, just clip alittle more off or make sure the cap got seated all the way on.
