Power Seat releases
#1
Like Monterey and DanC, I am also tracking down wiring problems. In order to get more of the interior and exterior lights working I used a Dremel tool to clean connections and replaced fuses and bulbs. In so doing I got the power seat releases to work on my car. They worked well for a while (well, 2 days) but have since gone haywire. I didn't even know this option existed until seeing it mentioned on the site.
Anyway, does anyone have pics of the mechanisms or know if there is a way to service them without pulling the covers off the seats? Are there reproduction replacement components?
Thanks in advance for any info or pics.

Just pulled the back of my seat off to get a picture for you.
This is the drivers side with the seat release on the right from
behind. When we re-upholstered my seats the mechanism
worked but is not currently connected. Its does look like
you may need to remove the upholstery to get at the screws
that hold it in place. Maybe just a bad connection or maybe
needs a little lube.
I have heard this is a rare option.

Thanks Mike. That helps a lot and in my opinion also deserves a Rep vote.

I see two screws on top and don't what is below.
You should be able to cut 10 or 12 hog rings and access
the mechanism.

Thanks! I'll keep it in mind when I pull them apart to find the problem.

I disconnected mine in my convertible. Drove me crazy with the click - click whenever I opened and closed the doors.
