Question about 1994 BMW 5 Series

Electric seats , not fully functional

Can i fix the electric seats in my 1994 BMW 520i? The back support, on both seats, only half work- only 1 side of the back will move down, twisting the seat. If i move the seat so the back & seat are 90` to each other, the back support is straight. Any help, ideas?

Hey dpurple,
Beemer seats are just like all the others. You CAN fix your own seats it's just a matter of how much knowledge you have about working on things. You can get replacement parts at junk yards and on-line, even a complete seat in most cases.Do some investigation as to why the seats won't move correctly. Maybe a loose/broken wire leading to the affected/broken side that doesn't work. The motor that drives that side of the seatback might be loose or the attaching gears could be striped. Once you take one side apart, you'll see the problem.

How do I wire 1999 explorer seats that are electric and have heat and side air bags into a 1994 explorer that has electric seats only?


you could probably get the seat track to work forward, backwards, but the rest will not unless you got the wiring and modules from a different car.

Electric window close just half way only


hello velazqj, sounds like maybe the window regulator is binding, or possibly the window motor itself. Try helping the window up by pulling up on the glass when closing and see if it closes fully. If you hear any funny grinding or crunching noises, the regulator has most likely failed. The regulator is a scissor design and the motor is directly bolted to it. I would recommend removing the door panel and having both inspected.
