Hi All, 

I've only taken my front passenger seat all the way back (reclined) twice since I've owned the car in order to move stuff.

This time its now stuck all the way back in the reclined position. Every other positioning knob on the seat works (including headrest up/down which of course is the same knob controlling the seat back).

What's my diagnosis? Bad switch, cable, motor??  I've never been inside one of these seats.

Any thoughts/suggestions appreciated-
