Who do I remove rear seat for a BMW 760li?


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.

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.

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.

'96 monte carlo autoseat wotn move forward or backward


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.

Power driver seat will not adjust forward or back.


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.
