December 2, 2014Ok guys and gals, I used to be a member of the NC chapter years ago but after moving I fell away from DTW as a whole. I used to be able to turn to you folks for all the questions I couldn`t get answers for anywhere else. Well, I am in need again.
So here is my dilemma, I took my truck to be detailed and they moved the driver seat forward to clean the back. Now the seat will not go back at all, it is adjusted all the way froward, nearly touching the dash. Upon further investigation, it appears that the horizontal adjustment motor itself went out. We took the motor out and the motor itself is locked up. I was able to tap on it a little like you would a stuck starter and it worked for a second but then froze again. I need a new motor.
I have searched the web and am having no luck whatsoever on finding a replacement motor. All I can find is the entire seat frame assembly for the tune of $300+. I have searched local salvage yards and part houses and the cheapest I can come up with is $250 for a salvage seat.
Do these things exist in the aftermarket world? Does anyone have any idea where I could find one???
Thanks guys and gals
