Your best bet to finding out for yourself would be to take a tape measure, measuring the distance between bolt/bolt holes on both sets of seats, and also the height of the risers/seat adjuster assembly on the bottom of the two sets of seats.

If the measurements come out exact or very close, its worth a try. But if the measurements aren't anywhere near each other, I'd say its probably not interchangable without taking to a competent metal fabrication shop. Which is 100% possible to modify the bracketry to make them fit if you want to go that far.

The computer has detected a fault in one or more of its systems. The only way you're going to an answer as to what the fault is, you're going to have to have someone attach a scanner or code reader to get any codes that are stored.
Most auto part stores can check late model OBD II for free. One may do earlier European.

I am trying to put the dash cluster from the 9-97 in to the 11-97 bmw 740il but the wiring is different

If the wiring is different i would suggest that you do not use it.Considering the wiring is not the same tells me they will not interchange.U need to find a unit that has the same build date.Call your local salvage yard and they will tell you what will interchange.

Need to know what kind of power steering fluid to use?

Your car, being a 735 iL (the iL being the key here) requires what is called Pentosin 7.1. This is a mineral based hydraulic fluid used in BMW's with self leveling suspension. Since your car is an iL you have self leveling suspension. Not a lot of parts stores carry this fluid. NAPA has it, if it's not on the shelf they can order it. BMW dealers also stock it. The same pump that runs your self leveling also runs your power stearing and they are filled in the same location as they share a common resivoir. This resivoir is located in the engine compartment on the driver's side and looks like a black bottle with a screw type cap.

89 BMW 735 il wont start

The cause of the display reading E sometimes and S sometimes is a defective transmission module, or getriebesteuerung in German. This module is located in the passenger side kick panel. To replace the module you will have to remove that panel then loosen the 4 10mm bolt which hold the module in place. There is a large set or wires going to this module and it is not simple to remove at first, it takes some twisting and shouting. Make sure your battery is disconnected when you do this and make sure to replace it with a module that has the same part number on it, If you have any more questions I'd be glad to help.
