The power seat on passenger side will move all directions except the base will not go back after it has been moved forward. Suspect the switch needs replacement.

Is it easy to get at and how?

Could it be anything else?

Please help as I am stuck between the seat and the dash>>> Thanks

I had the same problem about two weeks ago, the only difference it was the drivers side seat that when I brought it all the way forward it wouldn't go back. I did a search here and on Deja.Com and got excellent information on the problem. It is the switch, which you can replace by buying a new on, or you can remove the switch and clean up the contacts. Removing the switch requires carefully pulling of the controls and then a small plastic lock washer. Then two phillips screws. Carefully take the connectors off the back of the switch and either replace it with a new one or get ready for delicate surgery. The internals of the switch consists of springs, ball bearings and copper connectors. If you take it a part, be gentle and do it inside of a bowl or a table with raised edges so the ball bearings don't run away. As for reassembly, a tip a gleaned from this board was this, use a little diaelectric tune-up grease to hold the ball bearings on to of the springs, so that you can place the top of the switch on. My switch works perfectly now.
