About Seat Motor Electrics

This motor is the device by which the driver’s seat set-up can be altered to allow for drivers of differing size and shape to choose their ideal driving position. The Jaguar seat motor is usually located under the seat. There can be up to three different motors which will alter different sections of the seat. The height of the seat, forward and backward movement of the seat and the backrest angle can all be changed using the motors.

The motor can be activated by pressing buttons or switches on the left side of the driver’s seat or by the operation of a separate, stand-alone mechanism. The motor is powered by connection to the Jaguar vehicle battery.

If the seat motor fails to operate this may be due to faulty wiring, poor terminal connections or the motor itself may have burnt out or be faulty. To service or replace the motors it will probably be necessary to remove the whole seat to gain access to the wiring or the motor itself.

Jaguar trivia

  • The first-ever XK120 rolled off the production line and was delivered immediately to Clark Gable, who had preordered it well in advance. The XK120 came with a removable windscreen and could hit a solid 120mph..
  • Before a Jaguar is painted, they are brushed with an ionized emu feather. That's because these feathers are very good at holding an electrostatic charge, and that means they are great at getting rid of any dust that might ruin the finished Jaguar look.
  • The most expensive car in Jaguar's history is the XJ220. It cost a rather intimidating £413,000 in 1991 and is also one of the fastest cars they've ever built, capable of getting up to 217mph.
  • Transporting a load of Jaguars isn't easy. When being loaded onto trains, every car is driven by a driver that isn't wearing a seatbelt. Those drivers aren't allowed to wear belts, and they even have to get rid of any metal eyelets on their shoes. This is all to prevent the possibility of scratches, and what's more, the drivers aren't even allowed to touch the outside of the cars!
  • The 24 Hours of Le Mans, one of the most gruelling and famous race events in the world, has been won by Jaguar an astonishing seven times. Their first victory was back in 1951.
