Drivers Seat electric ajustment not working?!

My drivers seat electrics arent working at all

i have found a fuse layout for the car, checked the 30 A drivers seat fuse - fine.
I have found that you can buy new Seat motors on eBay for 75, but before i buy one can anyone answer this?

I have two levers on the side of my drivers seat, one for backrest ajustment and the other for what i gather is height ajustment. Neither work, so that leads me to think its pretty coincedential that both motors have gone, as they are seperate items!

Any ideas on the above anyone? surely i cant be the only person to have electric seat issues

Is there anything else i should be checking / common issues

Remove the seat and check for 12V at the connector.
