Can you separate the motor gears from the seat track by removing or loosening the electric motor bolts? Can you reach under the seat to remove the covers or the bolts themselves ? When reinstalling the electric motor in the seat, make sure you set it to the very front of the seat tracks so that you have room to install the back bolts first and then use the motor to expose the front two bolting locations.

none of the above. I found I could remove the flexible rod connector from motor to rail. and used a drill to wind the seat forward.

Both front seats will not move up / down or forward/backwards 2011 Sabrua legacy
