When I accelerate very fast or press the brake pedal, the track of the driver's seat makes a loud clicking noise like if its not sitting in the track properly. Now seats are electrical so i tried to push n tug it but it would not move. I took the car in but they said its a slight flaw which is not really repairable. any ideas how i could correct that myself??

Do you by chance have sport seats? If so there may be a service bulletin that can correct this. (*I say may because it is listed as an "all" model but reading the SI only mentions E46*) The SI does however discribe your complaint EXACTLY. Says there is a small amount of play in the tilt adjustment, can be fixed with o-rings (*customer complaint basis only*) Hope u find this to be of use.
