I'm a new owner of a 97 328i. So far I'm loving the car. The only problem thus far is my power seats. The driver seat won't move forward and backwards and the passenger seat won't move at all. It's not the worst problem in the world since as long as its like this my wife can't drive the car.
does it make any sense that the recline option works and the up and down works but not the forward and back. Which options work on the same motor. does it just sound like the switch??
As for the driver's seat....Sounds like the forward & reverse drive motor.....mine went on the passenger side......found it on ebay for about $40.00....The passenger's side sounds like a fuse.....
p.s. I replaced the motor, by removing the seat......it took about an hour....
note: before disconnecting the wire connectors from the bottom of the seat make sure the battery negative cable is disconnected first or you will trip the airbag light to come on!
I need help. My only problem with my 96' e36 328is coupe is that on the passenger's side, the recline option doesn´t work. Before this situation, it was working some days and some days not, but now it is completely disabled.
