Driver seat motor problems.

As the title states, has anyone been able to find these motors that operate the forward and backward motion? Mine just gave up. Granted I’m being lazy as it just happened today and I haven’t taken anything apart yet. I plan on taking it apart and applying voltage directly to the motor(s) just to make sure it’s dead.

Every other function works as it should, recline works, the seat bottom tilts and goes up and down. The seat just won’t move forward or backward.

Has anyone else had this issue? If so what did you do to fix it? Also does anyone know if these motors are still available?

I've been wanting to replace the seats in my turbo car - to save weight and to provide some better bolstering... But how do you choose? There's thousands of aftermarket seats out there, ranging from $200 to $5000 and it's not like you get to touch/feel/try them before buying.

Also - are you people adjusting your seats often? I mean, I don't share my car with anyone...but I prolly haven't touched my seat controls since the first week I bought the car.
Sure you get to touch / feel / try them before you buy. Over the last ~20 years I have bought well over a dozen different race seats in my various cars (some street legal, some purpose-built racers) and I've sat in each and every one of them before pulling the trigger. Any half-decent retailer will likely have several different models in several different sizes in their showroom.
