Anyone have anything in writing on our adjustable chairs (pilot/co-pilot) (or experience replacing gear motors?). Barb's chair has a gear problem where the footrest doesn't easily extend out. There is a lot of gear grinding going on and it won't extend without some underneath boosting.

Lou, sorry I cannot help you with a co-pilot footrest problem. Only the HIGH end Barth coaches had footrests for the Co-pilot. Mine does not have that feature.
On the other hand if the gears are not too chewed up, does the mechanism need some lubrication? Try some silicone lube, as I use it on my car's power windows when the windows get sluggish.

Sounds to me like gears are shot. I'll know more when I take the chair out. I'll keep it home after winter storage so I can try to figure it out.
