power seat problem

Hey folks!! I recently let my 4yr old son "help" me fix some small issues with my 05 WK, long story short, my passenger side outside (closest to door) power seat is not coming back up from being reclined too far back, I think the gears or cog is stripped out and thus isn't pulling the right side of the seat up.

So my question is, do I have to replace the entire motor or can I salvage a gear set or buy a replacement gear set??

Also, I located this part but I am not sure if the "driver side" motor is also the "passenger side" motor.

Problem solved, turns out the shaft that goes into the two gear sets (outter and inner) just slipped out of the outer gears and was not pulling that half of the seat back up. Tapped it back in and secured it with a tiny hole and cotter key.

Props to the father in law for helpin me out.
