The Company in the US is www.cruiserparts.net. The gear is listed as a front power seat track gear for a '93 Toyota Supra. I had to hunt around the site to find it. $19 but Postage to the UK brings it to around $50.
The gear arrived and I pressed the old one off the gearbox shaft using a vice and a socket. Pressed the new one on with a bit of superglue.
cleaned off the old sticky grease, relubed the gearbox and reassembled everything. It works! I think I will only move the seat while I'm not sitting on it though.
If you look at another site, the GlobalStore, there is a really good description of how to fit the replacement gear onto the gearbox shaft etc.
Toyota picked a complicated way of doing a simple job of moving the seat, but I suppose all the 'bells and whistles' are what sells nowadays. If the gear fix doesn't last, I'm looking at putting sprockets on the 2 seat adjusting screws and linking them with a chain.
