    Can someone tell me what's wrong with my driver's seat - Everything else works on it i.e. different buttons for the postures, but when I try and select the function of rising the seat, all I get is a clicking noise and it does not move? When attempting this on the other passenger seat, it does rise and fall ok. Does that mean something is wrong with the motor in this particular region of actuation or it a fuse blown for this?

    Any suggestions would b great. p.s. how much do u think it will cost to repair it?

    it's not the fuse as you would get nothing but the clicking indicates motor. do you know when/if you replaced it? or is it the origonal if so wat year is your car?

    Do you use the up and down alot? and will it go down but not up?

    also looks as if the parts are available separately http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts...14&hg=52&fg=25

    Update- I had a look under the seat and noticed there's a wire adapter not connected to anyhting....it is colour-labeled blue which wrapps a bunch of wires. - it is a short wire so it cannot travel far, but i can't seem to find a socket nearby for it? i.e. for a motor? Any suggestions please. BTW this the driver's seat

    Ronnie - it neither goes up or down. There's a click when u activate it (excluding the switch click noise) but nothin happens.

    Sounds like the motor is jammed, try giving it a helpful "tap"

    I'm not sure which does which on your seat but if you operate the ones that do work you can eliminate which is the up/down one
