In my 2005 DB9 the passanger seat will only inch forward and not back. I can not get to any controlls underneath as it has moved far forward and stuck. Can't remove seat because front bolts are covered by seat. Any suggestions?

Your seat modules have lost the memory..it's common thing if the battery had gone low or flat.Solution:*Get to the battery behind the passenger seat, disconnect the negative battery terminal and leave it disconnected for at least 120 seconds.Connect the battery, and follow this seat adjustment sequence to the "T"..Make sure your steering wheel is full adjusted inward and down, this will make clearance for the procedure to follow:-Lower seat cushion all the way forward, once seat stops continue to hold for 4 seconds and release.-Lower seat cushion rear height adjutsment all the way up and hold again 4 seconds at end-Lower seat cushion front height adjustment all the way up and hold at end for 4 seconds-Power the back rest cushion all the way forward and hold at end for 4 seconds-Now let the seat rest for 60 seconds in this state..VOLLA!! DONE! (Lol or at least for the drivers seat only)This prodecure will need to be performed for the passenger seat also all in the same order..but wait till you are completely done with the drivers seat then move onto the passenger....if in any case things didn't go as planned and you forgot a step..etc wtv, you can disconnect the battery like before and restart all over again.The windows now are not going to rise back up when you close your door due to the battery disconnect..SOoooo: Doors closed with you in drivers seat, hold drivers window switch down and wait 4 seconds at end, now power window closed and hold at end for 4 seconds..Now drivers window is calibrated, do these same steps for the passenger window from the drivers door window switch.Now by disconnecting the battery, there is a chance your misfire factors are going to be lost in the engines PCM..these settings can only be reset by the dealer(you can do the drive cycle road test but never know if there learnt by the road test or not, only Aston AMDS diagnostic machine can datalog this), so next time your in for a service at the dealer, have them check to verify if the Misfire Factors are stored or not..If there not and they have them saved on file in there diagnostic machine, they can restore them for you hassle free..if there not stored in your car and not in there machine, then a drive cycle will have to be performed by them to relearn them.
