02 POWER SEAT

2002 Infiniti Q45 • V8 2WD Automatic • 60,000 miles

02 Q45 drivers side power seat is jammed. No for and aft movement. Motor works left track tries to move, but right track is jammed. Seat is stuck aft so rear rail bolts are not accessable. I assume only 4 bolts hold the rails in. How do I get the seat out? Dealer says repair parts are not available only a complete rails and motor kit is available for $616.00. However I must first get the seat out. Please help me.

First, you should try to make sure the motor is faulty, and not the switch/connectors/wires. Sometimes a quarter or nickel will fall down into the rails and cause the seat to jam as well.

Eliminate all of these possible causes first. Then if you're sure the motor is at fault, you can use a saw to cut the rails and remove the seat, if forcing it doesn't work.

Also, you can get a motor at a junk yard without paying that high price.
