Default 91 LS400 Seat stuck

Hey guys quick question hopefully quick fix.
My driver side seat right gear seems stuck and won't move at all when adjusting my seat. Any ideas on how to fix this?
Thanks

Try removing the garbage from under the seat. Just kiddin'
You might have to take out the seat and regrease or realign the gears. Try lifting up on the seat hard while trying to adjust it, it might be off track. Does the seat feel loose or is it solid?

Yeah its solid. So I pull the seat out remove the cover and regrease? With standard grease or would wd40 work?

You need to use grease, not WD40. Something could be just jamming the gears, ya never know what could get in there.

I have the same problem with my '92. Driver right side back is stuck. Keep us posted on the grease trick.

It could be something as simple as the fuse or circuit breaker but have a look at this link also
