Silverado Power Seats not moving forward/back

Recommended Posts

007.5 (NBS) Silverado 2500 LTZ


Both front power seats will not move, the driver seat will not move at all but i can hear the motor spinning, i’ve taken both seats out and cleaned the track and continuously sprayed wd40 and PB blaster along the track but the seat will not move, it is trying but it will not even when pushed. I’m guessing the gear is stripped out 
The passenger side moves a little basically .5-1.5 inch and then stops and if you press the button 1-3 times it’ll move another inch or two but will only go so far up. 

Both tracks have been cleaned and seat bottoms have been cleaned, everything else works even lumbar the seats just won’t move forward or backwards (forward and away from steering wheel)

Two questions here

1. can i buy black seats and swap the bottoms out (my truck has cashmere and both seats are in decent condition) and use those or do i have to buy working seats

2. any way i can fix these under ~150 and what would i have to replace

  I take it your truck is a 2007? You have 007.5 in your title. However, I had this in my 2002 Duramax, driver side seat was only one power. Passenger was manual, with Jack handle down below. 








   Your motors are pretty much done. You may be hearing them, but they are not putting out the power needed for the operations. Buy the replacement motors, any carsitshould have them. Rock Auto, Ebay has alot of those motors as well. Just get the info off the motors, and do search for year, make, model. Ebay it would be for the motor specific.

   As far as your second question, if I am understanding it correctly. You should be able to get cloth bucket manual operating seats that fit in same spots. May have to redo hardware to set them correctly. You will have to do your research, but alot of older model seats will fit yours. 

  As far as for 150 or less under this administration, would be the junk yards. But quality may be worse than you have. 

  Have you thought about just making those seats manual? You can get Jack bars from old trucks in junk yards. All they need to be is screwed in under seat to the sides, the mechanism locks into the same tracks. Just a thought. Let us know how it goes..
