Angry CLK 430 Driver Seat Problem

I have a 2002 CLK 430. When attempting to fold down the driver's seat to let a passenger in the back seat by operating the lever, it will not fold down 95% of the time. I took it to an MB dealer in the local area. After adjusting the cables, trying to synchronize the seat motors, performing a short test that found the code for fore/aft motor hall sensor malfunctioning, and when operating for a period of time the adjustment quit working, they determined that the drivers seat frame adjuster with motor be replaced at a cost of $1375.00. I found this cost to be ludicrous for a seat motor and declined replacement. Can't believe that a seat motor that costs this much is not more reliable. Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

With an MBCA membership discount, the fore/aft motor (part number 2088200842) is $97. Regular list is $122. The entire tract assembly (PN 2089102636), with both motors, is $580 with the discount, and $770 without. If the control unit (2088200526) is fried, those are $500 retail, and $370 with the discount. Usually, all that's needed is the $97 motor. A dealer WILL NOT simply replace the motor. Even under warranty, they replace the entire track assembly. That usually ensures the customer doesn't come back because the other motor is toast.

Thanks for taking the time to help me out here MarcusF. The greedy dealerships would never explain these options to a customer.
