Driver side powered seat will not move forward or backward. cable just fell off under the seat.
Drivers seat only slides on left side. Cable under seat on right side is broken upon inspection.
The plastic cover holding the control levers has been loose and dangling for awhile. Eventually, the cable became exposed and we were moving the seat by wedging fingers between the plastic, directly touching the controls! Now, something is busted off the cable and we can't move the seat. At all. Have to figure out a solution.
Don't wait that long! If the plastic housing around the driver seat levers is loose, replace immediately!
