hi and welcome to justanswer

the lumbar is part of the seat back frame and usually what happens is the lumbar "bar" either breaks from teh frame or the frame itself cracks

in either case you need to replace the seat back there are no service parts available, unfortunately on a vehicle as "old" as your 09 the service parts will likely not be available anymore i would suggest a recycled (used) seat as the best course of action.

if you are very handy you can take the seat cover off and  have a look at the mechanism and see if it can be welded or somehow repaired, assuming the failure is in the metal if it's a plastic part it's possible to get a plastic bushing and drill it out to fit if the gearing inside the motor has failed then the used seat will be the best repair

the cover should come off pretty easily 2 types were used 1 was a zipper on each side the other was a plastic fold over method it depended on the supplier and material used zippers were pretty common, i have also seen fully sewn together in that case you need to remove it like taking off a shirt
