Repair Infiniti Power Seat in an hour for $14

Repair Infiniti Power Seat in an hour for $14

If your power seat will not move correctly but you can hear the motor running when you press the switch, there is a good chance that a $14 plastic seat motor gear is stripped. You can replace this yourself. See links below to specific sections of the video and replacement part.

2:46 Align the seat before you disconnect power
6:51 Replace the plastic gear
11:18 See what the previous owner left behind
12:30 Reinstall seat
16:09 Reset blinking ABS light after repair

In this third video in my series I will remove the passenger seat from my 2004 Infiniti FX 35 and replace a missing plastic seat gear I was able to buy online for $14. The repair only requires very basic tools. The dealership does not sell this part and will quote you an entire seat to do the same repair.

The part I ordered from Amazon –
The other videos in my FX35 series –

Thanks for posting this. I just fixed my 2005 FX35 driver side seat with that gear I ordered from Amazon, in 30 minutes. I didn't even take the seat out or unplug anything.
Just pulled the plastic seat front off to the side and went from there.I went straight to the right side gear, and found that it was stripped.
