Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

Most common when there is a issue with the recline operation, the issue is the power seat switch. That would be the first thing I would check for your issue. If the seat switch checks out, then you would need a lower seat frame assembly. The seat frame assembly is the only way to get the motor that may have failed if it's not the seat switch. But the seat switch is most of the time the problem for recline issues. I would think seat frame for sliding forward and back.

Do you have any more questions on this?
