I have the same problem. Found out yesterday. I can hear the motor but the seat does not move. It's the 3rd row pass side seat. I'm searching the net to see if anybody got this problem an easy fix.

Same problem as the rest of you. Ford dealer wants $100 just to look at it and tell me it is not working and not under warranty. I drove it home and am getting ready to tear it apart. Probably just a shear pin. Will let you know how the repair goes, and how to get it fixed yourself.
