Completely disassembled and cleaned the seat switch. Second time doing this. The first time, I used a bit of superglue to hold the bearings to the top of the tiny springs. I thought that was the issue and it took a while to clean up (got all of it) and reassemble. No superglue this time and do not recommend using it.
After install all of the other seat switch functions work but forward and back. Not happy. I will check the wires to the motor tonight. I will also try connecting a battery to the seat motor wires and see if there is any movement.
I may have a bad seat motor, but not sure my symptoms align with this. Thoughts?
Do you hear anything when you try to move forward or backward? Try assisting it by pushing. Track could be super dirty.
Also use a jumper on the wiring to rule out the switch. Something may have moved during reassembly. Ive used a it of dielectric grease to hold things in place.
I would think the motors are good the switch is bad
I would unplug the seat and jump the pins
To check the motors
My 92 passenger seat switch doesn’t do all the functions
But jumping pins makes it do all functions
The switch does the basics
All good. All seat functions work and everything buttoned up. It took a few times to get it right, but finally got it all together. (I think that the top switch in the picture below is wrong. I used a spare driver’s side seat switch for parts).
if you are in need of a switch and can't find it thru normal channels or it is priced a bit high, try procuring one fit for a 1980's vintage mercedes benz. keep in mind benz switches are mounted on door thus left side switch is land rover right, regardless of rover market.
