Cool 'Clunk' in drivers seat back - repair

Hello Forum;
As the drivers seat back is moved forward and back and I was getting a loud 'Clunk' sound and the seat memory feature was never just right in any position. I tried several fixes but ended up taking the seat appart.

Estmates for repair ran from 300 to 1500 US$

- I took the seat out of the car by removing the bolts and caps....1
- removed the wires .... 3
- removed the 2 trox screws and the seat back cover ....4
- snaped off the side plastic cover ....5
- snaped out the night light ....6
- gently pushed up on the leather and un hooked it....8
- removed the 2 torx bolts on the side releasing the seat back motor ....12
- reached in and remover the motor assembly....14
- pushed UP on the wire connector....16
- gently opend the 3 snap clips ....18
- lifted out the drive gear ....20
- replaced the drive gear with the broken off tooth....24

ther appears to be no limit on this motor and if put all the way down on the back seat the motor ca strip a gear.
Hope this helps.
