Bamaman39 :

Thank you for using just answer.

Bamaman39 :

Hello

Customer :

Oh, hello

Customer :

was reading disclaimer

Bamaman39 :

Is the seat working correctly and just making the noise?

Customer :

It moved back a bit, grinding and wont move forward

Customer :

Other adjustments seem to work fine

Bamaman39 :

Ok this does sound like a motor issue. If the track was a issue it would not be moving back.

Customer :

I think its back just as far as it will go now. and wont move forward

Bamaman39 :

Yeah you need a motor. Im getting the directions now

Customer :

oh cool. thanks. Even though Ive only had the car a matter of hours, I definitely am enamoured with it

Bamaman39 :

There is no directions for motor removal but its a easy replacement. The issue you will have is removing the seat. You may have to use a ratchet to get the back bolts out

Customer :

Ok, is their more than one motor?

Customer :

and if there is, is it obvious which is which?

Bamaman39 :

There will be 3 motors there. It shoukld be the middle one. Theres a height motor,forward and backward motor,and a rear height motor

Customer :

Is there any chance there is a part number for it?

Bamaman39 :

Im looking for it for you now

Customer :

Thank you!

Bamaman39 :

It runs around 130 dollars and the part number should be FOVY14547B
