Is there a way to test the working of motors on donor seat on the bench?
I tested donor seats with a battery and crocodile leads. Made sure that all mothors were working and then went ahead with transplant. I might still have some bits and pieces around if anybody wants them - just let me know. I definitely have a driver seat side airbag lying around.

Three motors, one for moving front and back, one for tilt, and third for up and down. Is the motor for backrest separate from this set of three?

Successfully replaced both front seats. It feels relatively firm than previous -- a placebo effect may be.

All motors are turning and electronic seat controller works. Driver's seat controller is inactive when key in ignition, however it operates with kay out -- normal?

The driver's seat controller will take a reading of instruction manual.

Meanwhile, an hour long vacuuming of floor carpet and under the seats, and then a treatment with Lexol leather cleaner and conditioner is making the upholstery look and feel fresh, both front and rear. It brings out Volvo interior aroma.
