john_18 is an unknown quantity at this point
Alright obviously this only applies to any "IS" BMW, but if anyone knows how I can fix it let me know. The drivers seat of my car won't fold down so Ican't let people in the back seat from the drivers side. ghead When I lift up on the latch to lean the seat over it just slides back and forth. No where in the range motion does it feel like it is grabbing something within the seat to lean it forward. The passenger side works great. Has anyone had this problem before and how can I fix it? Thanks.

-John

I'm not sure this will be alotta help, but does the seat in question tilt back and forth? (obviously when you pull the tillt lever for seat adjustment) Also is the cable underneath the seat that the lever messes with intact? On my celica that cable broke and the seat would only slide forward if you pushed it and wouldn't lean forward at all. But then I replaced cable and it slid forward it's self when you pulled it and leaned forward.... hope that helps... and hope BMW uses a cable as welll... if not pls disregared.


edit: WOOT 300th post!!!

I don't know how to fix this problem, but I do know BMW does use a cable. It may have broke or come off it's mounting.
