It can also be theseat motor since there is seperate motors for up/down & forward/backwards. You can test the switch to see if you are getting power to the connector on the motor by using a multimeter.

If there is power to the motor, I would remove the motor and give it a tap on the ground. Alot of the time the motor is fine, and the tap will free it up again. If it doesn't work you may be up for a new seat motor. Giving mine a tap solved the issue with mine.

More than likely, the problem is in the updown switch. Thats where I would start. Has it not worked for some time, or did it just start malfunctioning?

Passenger seat doesnt move forward or back


that motor has eithe become jammed or has gone bad. Sometimes u can replace the moor itself or you have to get a whole new seat sub-frame that has the motor assemblies on them already. getting the seat frame is the easiest repair as switching the motors can be time consumiing and difficuly if you loose a screw or washer.

Z3 seat rock repair


There is a ratchet system on the slide rail below the seat, sometimes the teeth on the ratchet wear out, especially when adjusted often. The hook holder that actually clamps onto those teeth, may be broken off or worn out aswell, and either of these will need replacement. Some models also come with air-suspension and a locking device, the spring on this device may be missing or worn, this will also mean a new one is neccesary for repair.

BUT... If you don't want to fork out, and are going to leave the seat in one position for a long time, may I suggest simply welding the rail to the seat, this is a permanent thing and would require you to throw away the entire sliding system, if you ever need to adjust the seat. Hope this helps you. Good luck!

its the dreaded seat rock syndrome, plenty of fixes on the forums, basically you have to replace spacers in set drive mechanism. I did with the help of a friend after ordring bushes and it was quite easy.
