    Can i ask out there. My seat back seat motor has stopped today. Rest of electric functions work, up/down and lumber. Have checked curcuit board this seems correct by vault meter. Intend to check at motor to see if wire has failed, but seat seems complicated to pull apart. Is there a link to a diagram/plan? Has anybody else found this fault? Thanks in advance for any advice.

    IIRC, there is no limit switch on the seat back adjustment. The motor may have burnt out, or more likely the wires going into the seat back have frayed and broken. See if you have continuity across the output terminals on the PCB.

    It's a bit of a mare to strip the seat down. PM me if you want the guide as it's 30MB in size.

    Cheers,
