Question about BMW 325
Yes, I tried activating the switch and pushing the seat forward at the same time. The seat is not completely reclined, so I'm sure it didn't go past the point where it would become stuck.
It sounds like it broke the drive cable then.
You can either take it apart (take the seat out, take off the upholstery around the hinge areas) or take it to the dealer (expensive) or to an automotive upholstery shop.
I used to work in a trim shop, and we did repairs like that all the time.
Most of them would come from dealers. Client would drop car off at dealer, dealer would run it over to us, we fix it, run it back, dealer charged our bill plus a markup.
