Default Power seat does not work

I have a 1996 Honda Accord EX. It has a driver side power seat which controls the forward/backward and up/down movements (there is a manual lever for the recline position). The up/down movements for the seat work fine but the forward/backward movements does not work anymore. Does anyone know if I need to replace the entire seat to fix this problem or is there a better solution?
I'm guessing there are separate motors for the forward/backward and up/down positions, and the forward/backward motor has failed. Is it as simple and replacing this motor?

Any comments or suggestions would be much appreciated.

Hopefully it's just a plug....

Worse case.. the motor.

I would check all of the plugs underneath the seat and then check power at all the plugs.

Thanks for your reply XMRadioStar.

Is there an easy way to check the plugs under the seat other than removing the seat all together? I guess the next obvious guestion is: How do you remove the seat?
