My seats are not moving forward and backward (mostly backward) properly when the are moving at all. This is making things seriously difficult to drive the car, especially when my wife drives it. Other than not letting my wife in the car has anyone had/fixed this problem. I would prefer the non replace the seats answer.

I can't even get the seat off because it is all the way forward and I can't get to the F*&(ing bolts in the front. Upon inspection I found a white round roller looking piece wedged between the seat and the console pillar. If anyone knows a way to move these seats, let me know.
Thanks

Sounds tough. Take it to the garage and they can probaly fix it for you. ANd hey if the f&%# up the seat, hell its there fault, that means they replace it. Atleast thats what i do when i have a situation like this!

this is a super old thread bad thing is Im having the same problem My father drove my carf for the first time today and moved my seat from the normal position at which point Itry to move the seat back and it would not move. So I went to move it foward and it did but would not move back. It's almost like there is something holding it in place or blocking it on one side.

i have the same problem and if you operate the seat when its off of the car and you look at whats moving and what isn't, one of the gears that is suppose to power the other, non-powered side (the seat motor is only hooked up to one side), doesnt work anymore. i assume this is a part that wears out after years of use. the easiest way to do it is to get a new power seat motor, complete with the whole assembly. otherwise, for now, you can manually adjust it. there's a 10mm bolt on the right rail if you feel for it with your right hand as you're sitting on the drivers seat. you need a socket wrench to adjust that bolt, but you'll be able to manually adjust it forward and back through this bolt.

I don't know that you will need a new assembly, I did not when I had this problem.
The easiest and quickest way to move the seat by adjusting the bolt is to get a flexible extension for a socket driver - I plugged it into my cordless drill and ran the seat back quickly. Once you get it back, you can work on it. You may need an extension mirror to see where to turn.

I have the replacement part you guys need to get your power seat back operational. The worm gear is stripped causing the seat not to move. Yes the culprit is a plastic worm gear. I don't know why Toyota made this part from plastic.
