Power driver seat motor help. (Foward and backward)

Hello everyone , my horizontal (front and back) motor on my driver power seat stopped working recently . Ive checked under the seat and noticed one of the wires (black) has been cut . Ive bought a new horizontal motor (silly me) but was unable to take the original motor out of the car . I unplugged the motor and taken out 2 torx bit screws but it seems to be connected to a gear rod thing . My question is am I able to take the motor out without removing the seat / rails ? And would it be possible to reconnected the severed wire and better not replacing the entire unit . Any advice and input would be appreciated . I will include pictures soon . Thanks
