1985 300sd questions

Greetings all. I have just purchased an 85 300sd to restore.

I am having some issues with the drivers memory seat. The controller will move the seat in all directions, except it will not raise the seat back. It will lower it, but it will not raise it. So what is the cause? Is this likely a switch problem? Or is this a motor problem?

Secondly, the number 2 memory slot does not work. Is this a switch related issue or is it the memory controller issue?

Also, the sunroof does not work at all. When pressing the switch, nothing happens. There is no drain on the electric, and zero noise, vibration, or movement from the sunroof. What issues should I be looking into with this?

Lastly, I will eventually rebuild the front seats as they are very soft and have little to no support. I believe I wil need to have new springs and padding installed.

In the mean time does anyone know the MB part number for the rubber pieces that can fit into the front coil springs in the seats? I found some on Ebay, but the guys wants quite a bit for them and has strategically photographed them so most of the part number is not shown. Any help on this one would be great.

This is my first Mercedes, but this is the model I loved when I was younger. I would very much like to restore this car to it's glory days. Thanks in advance for the help.
