    Not 100% sure but iirc you have to remove the seat back to get to it.

    Its most likely the common fault of microswitches have snapped or come of underneath that controls the power switches, remove seat, turn upside down & look for loose micro's, then you could glue them back in place like I did if they're not buggered.

    Alternative would be a shed load of pillows for now :undwech:
