Good Evening All,

Long time watcher but never had any issues with my EC (until now) to post.

Wondering if anyone has had an issue with their electric seat reclining motors failing.

The right hand motor in my driver's seat seems to have stopped working. That is, I assume that there are actually 2 reclining motors in the seat as the left hand still works slightly (I don't want to push it as it may burn out as the seat back twists).

Cheers,

Carl

So a belated update on my seat.

I took it in for servicing a number of months ago now and they pulled the seat apart and identified that the seat frame was broken... Although I am 6' 2" and 85kgs I think I have probably reclined my chair twice since getting it new 4 years ago.

I was quoted $2,800 by Mitsubishi to get it fixed (have a new frame installed) and although I took out the 10 year warranty when I purchased the car I will still be out of pocket $800...

Might have to lift the leather and dig the welder out myself.

I will take some photos if/when I do.

Cheers,

Carl
