Broken 4 series seat

Hi,

Just picked up a 2014 435 and Have found that the passenger's seat won't go forwards and backwards. The motor runs and it seems to move only on one of its tracks.
After doing some poking about I have found the plastic bracket under the seat broken that holds the motor. The cable on the right seems to have come out of the motor and thus the right doesn't move.

I have been advised that this will require a new seat base at over 1000!!!

Is there anything else that can be done or any repair service available, does the site have any affiliates that could help?

Replace with a used one.

I'm going to say you've never thought of what it costs to ship seats from the USA to UK.

His reference to £1000 gives it away
