Question about 1997 BMW 328
Power seat stuck in recline position
A common failure on this chassis is that the small plastic gears, that drive the recline gearbox, strip and break. These are not available from BMW .... you must buy a complete seat base frame and gearbox assembly ($$$$). Call Bavarian Autosport at 800-535-2002, they offer custom replacement gears for this.

Sounds like a bad switch or motor. If it will incline, I am assuming it is the switch itself. Replace the switch, and it should work again.

Take the seat out and turn it over, to see if the gears are stripped, or if something simply became unattached.
It is needs expensive parts, consider a junk yard, or if really desperate, steal them from the passenger seat. Worst case, just lock it into one position that is best for you.
