Hello all, I was going to write a new post however this one seems very similar to the problem I have been facing. I have a W207 Mercedes E250 Cabriolet with memory seats however, the passenger seat reclines backwards but not fully forward. So I end up with a seat that is leaning slightly too far back. I can move it forward and back but it only goes to a certain point when pressing the forward switch on the door.
I think it is potentially a simple fix (reprogramming the seat, or resetting the motor position or something) however, taking it to Mercedes just to have a look at is expensive and then any work on top will ramp the price right up. Unfortunately there are no helpful Youtube videos and I've looked at other seat issues across the forum but taking the seat out myself to try and fix seems like such a big job and is too scary, there's so many wires and if you don't know what you're looking for, you could just make things worse.
I have taken the car to a mechanic who has said he will replace the motor for £240-£290, which is much cheaper than what I think Mercedes will charge. I don't really have any other option so I am going to pay for the motor and get it changed even though I think the fix is much simpler than this. Any suggestions welcome such as help with resetting the seat, knowledge of software that can be downloaded to reprogram it myself, maybe changing the fuse... anything? Otherwise if I can't fix it i'll wait for my mechanic to get back from Poland in 2 weeks time and get him on the job
