Hi everyone,

The passenger seat on my 2005 997S will move forward but not easily backward. On closer inspection there are two axles that come out of the motor to move the seat. The axles are made out of a wound wire that is soldered on the ends and crimped into a square shape. The axle on the outboard side is mangled somehow and causes it to bind. Does anyone know where to get the axles without having to buy the entire electric seat assembly.

Yeah I thought that as well. My understanding is that they are Recaros. I looked at Recaros website and there are US support locations. I had tought to contact them to see if they sell replacement parts. Something must have gotten into the rail on that side and the seat motor fought against whatever was there are the axle just being comprised of twisted wires lost the fight. Seems a shame to have to buy an entire power seat assembly for what appears to be a $0.50 part. Also, you can replace the part very easily by just moving the seat all the way forward.

All I could find was instructions on how to remove the

seats. I think that the seats are third party supplied

and there are no instructions to repair them.
