Several Toyota and Lexus vehicles find themselves with a broken power seat from time to time, and the most common causes of these are missing white caps, and stripped gears. The white caps can work themselves out of their little housing through use, and once they fall out continued seat use will damage the gear inside, since missing cap has made the shaft and gear inside no longer in alignment with the worm gear.
Originally developed for 1993-1997 Toyota Land Cruisers and Lexus LX450's, these parts have been known to also repair the Supra, Solara, 4Runner, and other vehicles made in the 1990's by Toyota, including the Crown Majesta!
To see if you're missing a white cap, just look under your seat from outside the vehicle, towards the front of the seat. You should see the little cap threaded inside the gear housing, shown to the left and above. If you see a hole, then voila, you need a new white cap.
To inspect your passenger seat, you first need to remove the seat as the cap location is up against your transmission hump- it's just 4 bolts with your 14mm socket, and make sure you unplug the wiring underneath once you can tip the seat back.
The material used for these is an injection molded in a self-lubricating POM material, using custom designs and tooling proprietary to Gamiviti. These caps are gears are the closest approximation available to the original stock cap, and your best, most affordable chance available to restore that sliding function to your Land Cruiser's power seats.
For seats that have been forced to slide front to back for some time without the white cap in place, odds are good the gears are stripped and/or worn to the point where they are no longer effective. The solution for this is to dismantle the lower gear assembly, press off the old gear from the metal shaft it's pressed to, then press on a new gear. Installation takes someone with average mechanical skills about an hour per seat. If you can change your own oil, you can swap both your white caps and your gears.
