So here is the how to for Gransport seatback disassembly.

1: Remove seat from car. one bolt at the front and rear of each seat track. Tilt seat back and remove electrical connectors under seat. Fold seat back forward and tilt seat sideways out the door. Depending how strong you feel remove seat from car or call wifey to help like I did.
2: Remove leather upholstery from around seatback. The leather has a plastic welt sewed on to it's edge that is tucked into a channel in the seatback. With a pocket screwdriver, start at the bottom side of seat and get behind the welt and py it out of the chanell, continue all the way around the seatback. There are 4 metal clips attached to the welt at various places around the seat that help hold the welt in588065880758807 place. Peel the upholstery forward over the foam.
3: Remove the seatfoam from the seatback. The foam is attached to the seatback with very good double sided tape, about 8 pieces. Take your time peeling the foam from seat back or you will tear foam.58808
4: Remove screws holding seatback to frame. There are 4 crosshead5880958810 screws, two on each side of seat holding seat back to frame. You have to push the foam out of the way to reach screws.The seatback has 4 flaps that the screw go through(see pic). Need stubby screwdriver to remove screws. Be careful the flaps are flimsy. Once the scr58811ews are removed, lift the seatback up and off the frame.
If you are going to refinish the seatback you need to remove the map pocket, which are held on by pushon retainers. I broke two of the map pocket posts trying to "unscrew" retainers. Suggest you bend the retainers until they break instead. Good Luck!

Excellent write up for the seatback.

Martijn. On the 4200 there are 2 wiring loom connectors going to the seat. I think the 3200 has a single connector where pin 27 is available for the micro switch.
A while ago I did perform the recommended seat reset routine but this did not help.

When I get back from holidays I will have more time to investigate.

The 3200 and 4200 have exactly the same components regarding the seat controls, I found out. The controller, switches and motors all have the same part numbers thus same scematics.
Only thing I forgot to ask is if you have the memory seats? If not, I gave you the wrong connector image.

Anyway, enjoy the holidays and we’ll hear you again when you’re sitting “in front of the patient” again ;)
