I have a beautiful 1999 328 IS M. It has a few problems though, HELP!

1.) the car makes a funny "humming noise" , only when its moing at speeds 35+ its very noticible and progresively noisey.
I have read a lot on these forums, is this the rubber "guibo" that needs to be replaced?

2.) I recently had recharge my battery, fun finding it, and when I put it back in and reconnected it I noticed the driver seat will no longer move forward or backward.
Whats troubling is the seat moves up and down, even reclines (all power) but the forward motion seems to be not working. Did I short the motor? Is it jsut the switch?
Since its a 6 way switch, do I have to replace the enitre switch? HLEP!

thanks in advance, I think all of you are great for supporting this awesome forum!

Shahb they are only askign questions about this M to increase their knowledge about the e36.

No i don't think it is your guibo. Try and pinpoint where you think the nosie is comign from as it could be close to a million things.

I don't know much about the power seat motors but maybe this problem is fuse related?

This is the rare factory "M" 328 IS M

splint huh?

I dont want to got to the dealership and get bopped on the head (only the bmw of hawaii works on them here) I am very tech/mechanic orientated and could fix it if I knew what it was.

the sound seams to come from the rear axel area har dto tell when I am driving hte car, but deinately the rear end, I tohught it was the rear gear box?
or the wheels? but the wheels would not be a logical guess as I have not changed anything and this is a new problem.

the seats:

its not a fuse! LOL

HELP!!!!!

The only basic 3 series in the M version that I knew about was the 1994 M Technic.

I think what he meant by saying "1999 328 IS M" I have 1999 328 which is a MANUAL car.

No he explained it in the post above mine. He claims it is a M manufactured rare vehicle.

hmmm, I know its rare and all but give me a break yo,

IT IS a factory I.S. "M"

has the facotry m emblems on sides, wheel, base of shifter and A, M option for the rpm max switch....its even on my title.

but none of that helps my problems.
