Memory doesnt work and tilt doesnt work? or jsut tilt?So to keep the seat memory, you would just need to use the brass gear repair? Or take the gears out of these replacement motors? Or are the gears different? Has anyone confirmed that the brass gear fix from ebay will work with the tilt function as well? The tilt doesn't work on either of my seats.
what yeah was yours again
different years have different setups and stuff.. but generally, tilt probably has a spiral kind like the seat track and then both sides of the back are connected at least I think that was how mine does it. One side got disconnected from overweight PO who pushed into seat to get out. So the tilt functions the left backrest but the right stays put. Not fun. But the tilts dont usually break, because they are not like the seat tilt/lift one but again it may be different. Pressing the memory, exit, memory 2, tilting the switch forward and backward all do NOT adjust the tilt?
if you had access to scan tool like a tech 2 you can command the seat to tilt . my switch stopped tilting and it i pressed exit accidently but i used my tech 2 to straighten it out
