Driver seat not working right on E400 cab

Trying to go back and forth using door controls the left side works OK but the right side goes a little bit then jams. Tried to find anything that was causing the jam but everything is packed under the seat. Not too confident on removing seat, looks like four bolts, and if I screw it up Iíll be in a world of hurt as I need car for work.

Covered under warranty, out of warranty only choice is to remove seat to inspect most common problem motor shaft. Shaft cannot be purchased separately however, MB does offer a repair kit left 0009107802, right 0009107902.

IT looks like the DC motor is part of the kit. That kit costs around $500! My motor works but it just stops at one point in the worm gear and wont go much in either direction. It tries to and moves a little bit in each direction.

Possibly it has something caught in the worm gear and I'm not over confident I can remove seat, find problem and reattach seat. Given the Mercedes labor rates I'm damned if I do and damned if I dont
