Take a picture of the problem and I'll see what I can do. You may not need the entire seat.

well the motors also do not work and neither does the heat. i temporarily fixed it by taking the cables to the motor and using a power drill and moving the backrest and seat to a more comfortable position. im startin to learn some stuff here in the bimmer world.

The twisted seat is due to either a snapped cable, or the cable came off.
Take off the seatback cover and take a look.
It's a common E34 fault.
