1999 Lincoln Town Car Signature: drivers side seat motor..grinds

This answer was rated:

I just got a 1999 Lincoln Town Car Signature series, the driver's side seat motor that moves it forward and back kinda grinds. How hard is it to replace that motor and is it the motor?

Bamaman39 :

Thank you for using just answer.

Bamaman39 :

Hello

JACUSTOMER-oxv6k5my- :

Oh, hello

JACUSTOMER-oxv6k5my- :

was reading disclaimer

Bamaman39 :

Is the seat working correctly and just making the noise?

JACUSTOMER-oxv6k5my- :

It moved back a bit, grinding and wont move forward

JACUSTOMER-oxv6k5my- :

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.

JACUSTOMER-oxv6k5my- :

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

JACUSTOMER-oxv6k5my- :

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

JACUSTOMER-oxv6k5my- :

Ok, is their more than one motor?

JACUSTOMER-oxv6k5my- :

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

JACUSTOMER-oxv6k5my- :

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

Bamaman39 :

Im looking for it for you now

JACUSTOMER-oxv6k5my- :

Thank you!

Bamaman39 :

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