DIY Assignment: Replacing a Damaged Seat Switch

Power seats provide the ultimate comfort and convenience during long travels. Instead of just staying in one position for hours, you can actually adjust your seat whichever way you like. You can raise, lower, and even tilt its position by simply pressing the seat switch located on the side. If your seats no longer adjust no matter how many times you push the button, then the seat switch is probably damaged. Replace it right away before your power seat becomes stuck in just one position. Follow the steps below in replacing a faulty seat switch.

Difficulty level: Easy

Tools that you'll need:

  • Screwdriver
  • Wrench

Step 1: Before you can access the seat switch, you need to remove your seat first. Take off the plastic covers protecting the seat bolts. Next, remove the four bolts securing the seat rails to the floor.

Step 2: Adjust the seat accordingly so that you can reach the seat switch more easily. If you want to work on the seat switch outside the car, you can disconnect the wiring under the seat and pull it out of your vehicle. You can also do the replacement without removing the car seat. Just tilt it at a certain angle that will make it easy for you to install a new switch.

Step 3: Locate the plastic panel covering the switch. Use a screwdriver to take off the screws holding the cover in place. Remove the cover and unclip the wiring harness connected to the seat switch. Detach the harness from the seat as well.

Step 4: Lift the seat cushion. You only need to loosen one bolt to detach the front edge of the cushion from the frame. You can now easily remove the busted switch and connector.

Step 5: Install a new seat switch and reconnect the wiring harness. Cover up the switch with the plastic panel you removed earlier and tighten all screws to secure the assembly. Try adjusting your power seat to test the new switch.
