I sure my switch is broken. The switch arm that controls the bottom rear
portion of the seat no longer hinges inside the switch housing like the
other two switches do. It floats free up and down inside the switch housing=
and does not move the seat no matter what position it is placed in.

The other two switches (bottom front, seat back) on the drivers side front
door still work just fine.

Additionally I can be driving down the road and the bottom rear portion of
the seat will engage and drop all the way down. I can  then use the memory
button the return it to my preferred setting, but it may repeat the lowerin=
with in a few minutes, or maybe not for a day or two.

A new switch is expensive! So I was wondering a few things:

   1. Has anyone taken one of the switch housing apart and had any luck
   repairing broken hinge points?
   2. How well do good used switch's hold up?

Thanks, Richard
