Hello everyone. The rear lift motor on my driver seat seems to be stuck. When I toggle the switch I can hear a click/thump as if something is stopping the motor.
Without pulling the seat out of the car and inspecting the motor my mechanic said it needs to be replaced and that it is an expensive part because the motor and attached transmission are one unit. Is this so? If the transmission is jammed can it be replaced separately? I see motors for sales all over the web.

Your insight is appreciated.

Do all the other functions work? Its possible the switch in the control module is shot. My pass' seat put out the same noises but in all positions, a module is in the mail

Thanks for sharing. I've been told it could be the module.

All of the other positions work and the noise I mentioned is very faint.
