Re: Seats from 93 Aero problem - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
You said that the switch works and the motor runs, but are the cable housings intact? The plastic cable housings are a well-known failure item, and 24-year old plastic gets hard and brittle. I'm thinking that the square ends of the cables have come out of the drive gear socket at the seat back or at the motor, so even though the cables are turning, they aren't connected to anything.
I repaired one housing on my passenger seat using PVC tubing from the hardware store, put it back together only to have the other one crack immediately; since that one was a fresh break, I was able to sleeve it using some rubber tubing and hose clamps. There are several writeups in the C900 bulletin board on how to do this - the hardest part is getting the end of the cable housing out of the seat near the seat back.
