Hey, did you check the fuses in the trunk? I know one of them is the #9 fuse for back and forward not sure about the up and down fuse, could be the same one but not sure...

Aint that a bitch. I had the exact same problem. On my driver side seat. Luckily it got stuck in my seating position. It ended up being a burnt out seat motor. Expensive to fix @ $600. Luckily I got MB to take care of it. But now my passenger side seat is doing the same thing. I have been meaning to get it looked at. Thought that this might be a common thing with these cars. Didn't know if it was my idiot friends not being gentle enough with the seat. I'd be glad if it was just a fuse. Let me know what you find out. Thanks

Would swapping the "good" control box from the driver's seat to the "bad" one on the pass. seat be worth a try?

I have the same problem where the pass. seat will not move forward/backward.
Fuses look good.
It's a beyatch.
