    Power Seat problem in my 03 A4 3.0 quattro

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    I have a 2003 Audi A4 3.0 Quattro

    On the Driver seat I can move it from side to side with the Power seat adjustment, but when I can try to move it up and down only the motor makes noise but it does not move.

    Anybody know what is the problem? and what Parts I need to replace?

    my 3.0 piece of shit power passenger seat does the same thing.

    if you pull the seat in the direction you want it to go while holding the button, it will work

    Mine is OK now, but still makes some noise. I'm now hearing a clunk on my drivers side front. I replaced all my control arms 3 months ago too

    same shit dude. I just started hearing it today and it's weird as hell. It's so hard for me to replicate the sound. It seems like it happens when I'm turning and going over a bump at the same time, but then it happened when I was flooring it and let off the throttle. I'm gonna jack it up tomorrow and check it out.

    i thought the caliper was loose or something but its not that. everything seemed solid when i jacked it up and took the wheel off.

    bugs the shit out of me. sounds like someone is knocking on the floorboards

    the seat is set at high at the moment I want it to go down.. should I get somebody to force it down and press the button?
