    This quicky bypass was created & posted by papu84 in 2011. it can be built in 10 minutes, & worked the first time for me. Papu84 has it right. How happy I was to see the seat-belted Red tumor disappear from my dashboard. On my Coupe I didn't need to code anything .. the light went out on the...

    so my front driver side seat won't go backwards, but the other functions on the seat work just fine. i unscrewed the track rail motor which i found works perfectly forwards or backwards, so it must be the drive gear for the seat that is broken. luckily i found myself a replacement part on ebay...

    Hey, I have an E46 325Cic with 200k miles on it. Leather seats are pretty worn: faded color, cracks, rips and very dirty; I’ll attach pictures. Any suggestions on good repair kits that get the color accurately? The interior color is NATURBRAUN Montana N6NG. Thanks!

    I know there’s plenty of info of this already but say I wanted to swap my non sport powered seat with a sport powered seat from a another e46 on the spot is it simply plug and play? Or are the rails and such different along with the wiring? I might offer someone who is selling a junker e46 to...

    Hi all, I've been scouring the forums, but haven't been able to find a situation quite the same as mine. And by the way - all that contribute and reply? You're awesome! I see the responses on here, and people's willingness to help each other blows me away... I asked my mechanic to read the...

    So I posted a thread here the other day about help for my driver seat, which was stuck in the forward most position, as I moved it there so I could vacuum underneath the seats. When I tried to move it back, it wouldn't budge. Here are the symptoms I had. - Switch Clicks, but the seat doesn't...

    So I was vacuuming out my car, and moved the driver seat quite forward. I am now unable to move it back. The motors for recline, and thigh adjustment both work, they are in the same button. I don't think there is anything in the tracks, and I'm just wondering if you guys know how to fix this...

    So I currently have an issue whereby Iv broken the expansion tank mount where the ET top hangar is meant to hang on to. Could this be the reason why I can't seem to get the Expansion tank to seat no matter how hard I push down ?

    I've had this car for about a year now and it's time to finally figure out what is wrong with my heated seats. I've checked the fuses so far and they are fine. When touching the buttons on both sides the lights all flash once and that is it. Any ideas before I start blindly buying parts? Here...

    Hi I have a 323I 2000 convertible, does anyone know what each memory module under each seat individually controls. Reason im asking this is im having problems with my mirrors tilting up (if I unplug the mirror switch the mirrors stop tilting) the switch doesn't work either and my passenger seat...

    Hi I have a e46 convertible and the passenger side electric seat only works backwards or when lowering. I have tested the switches, Motors, fuses and I have wound the mechanism with a drill by taking the motors off and everything's free and moving properly. Please help

    Hey guys, I was just wondering do any of you have bucket/racing seats in a grey interior. I am trying to decipher what color bucket/racing seats I should get that would not look totally weird with a grey/black interior. Just drop some pictures of your interior! Thanks!:thumbsup:

    How about a (moderated) sticky topic for donor car disassembly FAQ ? Growing the class depends 100% on new cars being built, so how about using the group's collective wisdom to save new builders time and trouble ??? My first submission would be: Remove the front seats and side windows before...

    After years of looking at this::thumbdwn: I decided to make them look like this :thumbsup: The process that I followed was fairly easy. If you try to follow yourself, remember that you do it at your own risk and make sure you do it outside where the plastic fumes won't bother you. In order...

    Okay i am having a pretty interesting problem. My passenger side mirror moves all the way up or to the right when i adjust my seat, now i have memory seats and i have all my Mirror's and seat positions set but when i went to switch my seat position my Passenger side mirror moves. Even if i...

    Hi all. My seat memory either does not store my seat positions or its stores them but but pressing the memory position switches does not recall them - just a load of random movement. Also, the mirrors do not move either - and the key certainly does not trigger the positions either. One side...

    My e46 330ci has the sport front seats but I still can't find a comfortable position for my back. I bought the car a month ago and my lower back has had pain ever since. I drove down to San Diego last weekend, about two hours, and my back was sore for days after. Any suggestions on how I can...

    I recently purchased a 2005 325XI. love the car, hate the fact that the original purchaser cheaped out and went with the manual, leatherette seats. At least they dont feel like leather anyway. About the only good thing about them is they are heated. years ago i owned a new 2004 with the real...
  20. DIY: Do It Yourself
    Hey e46ers! So all my seats were in MINT condition. However, in the past few weeks, both my driver and passenger seats ripped! They ripped in the SAME spot on each seat LOL! EXACTLY on the stitching line.. There's no frays or tears; it's an exact, perfect rip. I initially thought about glueing...
