Power Seat Problem

I am sure this is a universal issues for all models, any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I have a 99' W208 and the driver's power switch is not functioning correctly. When you press the switch to recline the seat back the seat back inclines and when you press to switch to incline it inclines. For the seat bottom when you press the switch to move back, it moves forward. And when you press to forward, it moves forward.

So two inclines, no declines for the seat back and two forwards, no back for the seat bottom.

The only way I am able to get my seat position back is to recall the memory, thank goodness for that. I called the dealership, they say they've heard of this before .. But would need to see it in person to evaluate what's wrong with it. (Yeah, $104.00 for an hour of labor to tell me I need a new switch, I think not.)

I think my only option is to swap out my power seat switch with a new one. Any takes on this?
