Hello out there. I need to install a new driver seat switch. I can't find any videos on this issue. Can anyone help? Thank you
Hey GOPHERIT just want to give you a heads up on the driver seat switch. PONYMAN sent illustrations on how to remove the seat trim panel to get to the switch. Well I installed the new used switch and it does the same movement as my old switch. Just back and fourth. So either the new used switch is bad or the seat motor is bad. Ill have to find out what`s bad.They tell you to disconnect the battery power followed by removing the seat assembly. To me, I can't see the reason to do any of that. I think the trim panel can be removed by moving the seat as far forward an up as possible (unless impossible due to switch failure). If so, I think its still due-able, but harder. You then have to devise a tool(s) that can slide in behind that recessed recline knob, an carefully pry it outboard to disconnect it from the shaft its pressed onto. Then pull that aft end of the trim panel outwards to get it passed that recline shaft now visible. They show (in the drawing) that there are 3 retaining tangs that secure it to the seat frame assembly.( I think accessed from the bottom side of the trim panel). They tell you to press the 3 tangs "downward" and slide the trim panel towards the front of the seat frame assembly. May need an inspection type of mirror to see/verify the location an total actual count of those tangs to understand exactly what they are trying to have you do with them. If the panel disconnected itself from the seat rail, remove the trim panel "trying to not" stretch the power seat switch electrical harness. But I guess if the seat switch assy is history, you could be a little over aggressive an not feel guilty.
Seeing the back side of that trim panel should make for an easy understanding on how to R an R that switch assembly an its control lever. Hope this is understandable an works for you (if its still a to do project).
If you have a 4 way direction seat vs the 6 way that I have. you may have 2 levers vs my one lever that does it all (but is kind of annoying to me)
Just a heads up the switch I installed is a used switch. 6 way switchHey PONY MAN I followed these instructions and got the new used switch installed. Well, the switch I installed does the same movement as my old switch. Just moves back and fourth. Either the new old switch is bad or the seat motor is bad. Any suggestions? Thanks again for those instructions.
