Its the dreaded seat rock syndrome, plenty of fixes on the forums, basically you have to replace spacers in set drive mechanism. I did with the help of a friend after ordring bushes and it was quite easy.

Bmw z3 passenger seat goes forward backwards but


It can also be theseat motor since there is seperate motors for up/down & forward/backwards. You can test the switch to see if you are getting power to the connector on the motor by using a multimeter.

If there is power to the motor, I would remove the motor and give it a tap on the ground. Alot of the time the motor is fine, and the tap will free it up again. If it doesn't work you may be up for a new seat motor. Giving mine a tap solved the issue with mine.

Seat motor


I got the same problem whit the Passenger Seat. After perform a Diagnosis to the Electrical system and confirm every thing was right (fuses and voltage on the harness going to the seat) , I had decided to remove the Seat, then disassemble the side panel where the Activation switch is located and I have found the problem was the button was worn.
The easiest solution could be replace the switch , in my case I was able to repair the button by opening it putting some Tin solder on one of the internal traces and replacing one damaged micro spring.
I would recommend to replace the switch.
