hi guys , in the process of restoring my car and im trying to figure out how to fix my power drivers seat

The seat will tilt up and down but it wont go back and fourth , when i hold the switch down i can hear it moving but nothing happens

Any ideas on what it could be , i dont think the motor is going bad , hoping its something simple

Generally the switch is problem. I had to try 4 before I found one that worked

It also wouldn't hurt to pull out the seat base and spray the tracks and components with contact cleaner, or simiilar, and remove the accumulated crap

Sometimes the clip holding the gear against the track can also come loose - motor will spin but it isn't connected to the tracks

Also try sitting in the seat and rocking back and forth as you move the switch
