Shane studying the mechanisms under the seat before removing the old drive motor.
We have a movable leg rest on the passenger seat again! As you may recall, the motor seized up a couple of weeks ago and once I diagnosed the problem I ordered a replacement motor from Tiffin. It arrived on Thursday, and Shane came over this morning to help me remove the old and install the new. Good thing, too, because parts of it turned out to be a two-person job. I had detached the seat base from the mount and had the seat on its side, and had started loosening the base from the seat which we needed to do to get at the motor. What we discovered as we got into the project, we would have to disassemble or remove more than one part of the assembly to get at the motor. Some of the bolts were difficult to get at, and that is where having two people helped because one could hold the assembly in place while the other worked the bolts and nuts.
