    Can anyone advise how to remove the seat back to replace a broken cable? How to remove sliders on the side?
    Car is 318 convertible E36
    Cheers (I'm in Cyprus, not much expertise here!)

    if you have head reats you need to remove them then the back will just pull off, the base you just push inwards and lift mate, what cable mate?

    No did'nt work. Seat back seems to be held on by the seat tilt sliders at each side. You know the ones which operate the tilt forward action for passengers to get to the rear seat. Any other ideas? Cheers

    morning roy
    there are 2 small screw at the bottom and the seat sliders just pull out mate, you may have to get a screw driver on and give them a little push, hope this helps
