Most rear seats need to be unlatched from the very bottom on each side. Try sliding the driver and passenger seats fully forward. With your back against the front seat press forward toward the trunk on the bottom of the rear seat on one corner at a time near the floor and lift up. This should release the latch. To replace the seat simply slide the seat back into place with the front slightly raised upward and push the seat in toward the trunk then push down til you hear the latch catch.
Remove the headrests (if equipped). Grip the lower seat at the front part of the seat and pull upwards to clear the clips(1), and the remove the lower seat. Fold down the armrest and remove the bolts behind the armrest. The upper seat(backrest) is then pushed up, pulled forward and then moved either left or right out of the vehicle from behind the seat belts
Hello: Move seats all the way forward, raise seat up as far as it will go. Remove covers over seat tracks in rear(go through the back door on each side) remove 15mm nut or bolt on each track, pick up rear of seat far enough to release the front hooks pull seat back and lift seat out of car. Make sure you disconnect the power seat wiring after you get the seat positioned for removal. Prior to removing seat. Also disconnect the side air bag wiring (yellow) if equipped.

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.
This is a common BMW problem before giving to a mechanic try looking at the mechanism to see if any bolts are loose or missing,you might find the bracket is broken or torn and needs to be welded or replaced,the job is relatively easy but be carefull because of the SRS system if not sure give it to an expert.
Individual motors for horizontal and vertical movement. Try moving seat while looking under at motors. Once you find the one that is not moving, try holding switch to foreward position and tap on motor with a screwdriver handle. This may get it going long enough to move so you can reach the pedals easier.
My intuition tells me that the 6 way power seat track forward / reverse motor is bad. Sometimes you can replace just the one motor but most often a whole new power seat track is the only way to repair. It is not too bad to replace but the seat will have to be removed from the car and placed upside down to access the track assy. There are 2 bolts in the front of the seat and 2 bolts in the back of the seat that hold it down to the floorboard. Once it is loose you can rock the seat backwards to access and unplug the electrical connectors.
