Expert:  Ryan Schott replied 10 months ago.

sometimes if the seat is slightly crooked the motor may have slipped on one side, you can take the seat out, and look when you do if the front was fully down, then with it flipped over you can pull the motor for forward and back then use a screw gun on the little drive shafts to line back up the sides so they are the same and reinstall the motor.
