    I know there are 3 fuses on top of the battery tray, one is aircon and ones for the fans, not sure what the other is for but I think there all brown. If the fuse has a hairline split you wont see it, so it maybe worth testing all the one's your not sure of.

    you do know they slide forwards and backwards mechanically don't you ? if you can hardly reach the pedal pull the lever and slide the seat forward.

    Just looked in the manual dude, page 186 it states. "The electric windows and electric seat adjusters are protected by circuit breakers. These reset automatically after a few seconds when the overload (caused for example by frozen windows) has been corrected." So seems like you need to look for those maybe there at the back of the fusebox with the relays. Have you made sure nothing is stuck somewhere jamming the motor from moving, just a thought. Have a look at the back of the fusebox to see if there is anything there that could have burned out.

    Chris.
