I would look real careful under the seat and make sure that there is nothing obstructing the movement. Also check the tracks that it sleds on for pennies or anything else blocking it as well.

The most likely cause is the switch, replace it.

Seat won't move forward, cant get to the rear bolts to remove seat because seat is back as far as it can go is there any way to move the seat manually


You must remove the seat from the power seat transmission then remove the drive motor from the seat transmission, move the seat to the desired position and reinstall the motor to lock it in place. The seat transmission is bolted to the seat mounting bracket/rails.

Electric front seat stuck in forward position. It's a 2002 Camry. I moved the electric adjustment completely forward looking for an item and it would not return back to the original position. Both tilts...


I had the same problem on my 2003 Toyota Camry. The threaded drive screws are what spin underneath the seat and cause the seat to move back and forth (same way a garage door opens or closes). When the seat gets all the way in the forward position, the threading on the drive screws ends, which causes the bolts connected to the seat to jam and get stuck. It should sound like the motor is trying to turn but it won't, it just clicks. Un-jam the bolts and rotate them one rotation from the all the way forward position to ensure your seat is reinstalled straight.

I want to make my 1999 Mercury Villager Sport into a cargo loader, with just the front seats kept and the rest of the back empty. How do I remove the other 3 seats? So far, I can't get any of them to budge...


the middle seats come out easily. There are 2 handles you have to lift up on each of the bucket seats, they are in the front of the seat down by the seat tracks. After you lift them, tilt the seat upward in the front and rotate them backward. Then lift out of the hooks. Each seat is held down by 4 hoks.

The 3rd row seat is not designed to come out xcept by a technician. It does slide forward all the way up to the front seat. It has a sliding seat track.
First, lift the T handle under the seat cushion on the left front side of the seat. This will allow you to lift the seat bottom up all the way to lcok in the full up position.
Then, lift the lever on the same side of the seat and slide the seat forward. It will stop in 4 places.
Rear -Rear
6 inches forward of that.
another two ft to the second row seating position
full frward against the front seats.

Pleae rate as fixya if this helps.

Power driver seat will not adjust forward or back.


My intuition tells me that the 6 way power seat track forward / reverse motor is bad. Sometimes you can replace just the one motor but most often a whole new power seat track is the only way to repair. It is not too bad to replace but the seat will have to be removed from the car and placed upside down to access the track assy. There are 2 bolts in the front of the seat and 2 bolts in the back of the seat that hold it down to the floorboard. Once it is loose you can rock the seat backwards to access and unplug the electrical connectors.

My drivers side power seat not moving but i can hear the power working when i hold the switch. fuses and circuit breakers good. why wont it move?


Had exactly the same problem. Hacked a solution, disconnected the flexible cable from the motor. Problem was the nylon drive gear was stripped. Just twisted the cable by hand to desired position ( wife's car) to fit her. Left cable detached and accessible under the seat if needed again. Big tussel getting the seat removed. GM has a very large strange torx screw holding the seat belt mount which has to be removed. Other strangeness the front 2 seat mount bolts were metric. The rear 2 were US SAE standard. Other strangness one bolt was never installed at factory ?? Was probably close to lunch time at the seat place. If you want to repair fully you should get a used ? motor as I think the wholw motor housing was rather crimped and built into th seat frame. That's probably why I did the "manual hack" works well for a year now. Now window motors are another sad story.
(inner door pannel is welded in place) need to cut for access - Dealer quited $500 - window is rather still closed.
Good Luck
