manually adjust power seats?

the motor in the passenger seat is broken, and I can't find a way to adjust them manually. Is there an easy way to do this?

Nope.

At least not that I know of. The motor that controls front to back movement in mine seized and I had to take the whole seat out and replace it.

You might be able to convert it to manual though. I did that on my Mustang when the seat motor went out, it would not move forward....I swapped it out with manual seat brackets. If that does not work, you are stuck with replacing the motor. I am sure it would cost some $$$$ at the dealer.

EDIT: And it is the passenger seat so not a main priority....LOL, as long as they have some leg room.
