    Hi everyone i need some advice? My passenger seats recline mechanism is making motor noise but not moving the seat. Is there a manual way to get it to tilt back just a little more to get it more comfortable without changing the motor?

    And if motor is the only way how much am i looking at?

    Thanks.

    Often it is the screw gear that is the only item that needs replaced when this occurs.

    They sell the repair kit and have online instructions on the repair. I have used the kit and it works nicely.

    You can also obtain it from bavauto.com They are around $40 bucks I think, but its a big job putting them in if u dont know what ur doing.

    I agree. Probably save $$ as well.
