91 560SEL driver's seat rear height adjustment gear

The rear height adjustment stopped working and found this gear that appears to be worn out. I can hear the motor and shaft turning but it sounds like the gear is not engaging properly and hence no seat height movement. Where can I find a replacement part and anyone knows the part number?

Thumbs up

Probably have to buy a used seat and use guts from it to repair yours...I suggest the passenger side as it is used less often.


Just lower the thing all the way and motor on. I have done that on a few cars as I do not need to raise the seats in mine at all or I would hit my head on the roof.
I'm not a doctor, but I'll have a look.
