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.

You do not say what design 3 series; but for E36 with electric seat adjustment, Odometer Gears (link below), makes replacement gears for the electric seats for approximately $40 each. This is the part that typically wears/breaks for seat reclining.

Passenger side seat stuck in recline 1996 328i bmw


This is either an electrical problem or the infamous twisted seat problem caused by the cables between the motors and reclining gear units of the power seat.
Check the connector under the front of the seat and make sure it has not been disconnected
listen to determine whether the motor at the front of the seat are turning when you try to move the seat (they are fairly quiet)
If the motor spins, then search internet for "bmw twisted seat"
good luck

1998 BMW 328i Drivers Seat Problem


gears are probably not engaged. take the seat out, see if the motor drive gear is still within the teeth of the seat rail. if not, force it in. Easy to take out, 4 bolts and the seat comes up and out.
