Remove the seat, flip it over. Won’t look all that complicated.
Take stuff apart. Clean it, regrease it, bet you’re good to go. Stuff gets under our seats gums up the works and the grease becomes useless. Checkany play that might be there, should be pretty snug all around.

Electrical. While you’ve got the harness disconnected, use a test light (or voltmeter) to verify the switches do their part and also check both pins and sockets on the harness for oxidation (green) which could cause intermittent operation.
