BMW SERIES 5 E39 Drivers Seat and Steering Wheel Adjustment Gremlins...

Ive owned my E39 for 5 months and 5K miles. After replacing battery alternator and final stage resistor Ive been pretty much free of electrical gremlins. Until Friday. My driver seat adjustment and the steering column adjustment have stopped working (steering column is in the full upright entry-exit position). Passenger seat adjustment works fine. To be clear The drivers seat does not respond at all

On the same topic I have been annoyed by the SW going up and down every time I enter and exit the car. I want to save the SW column motor from wearing down so I just want to set it in one position and done with. This is because the SW column motor is expensive. I understand different people have different needs some love this feature some hate this feature. In my other cars such as 2007 Honda Odyssey

I noticed a few people mention the steering wheel motor in passing while talking about seat problems. Does this seat motorswitch thing also effect the steering wheel movement This issue Im having is the automatic steering wheel movement that goes up and down when getting in or out of the car is inconsistent. Sometimes it stays up sometimes it stays down. I have a 01 540i. Any help would be appreciated.

I do have two keys but I only ever use one. Its clearly a malfunction. As Im sure you know the wheel is supposed to go up when you turn the car off and back to its setting when you turn the car on to help you get in and out of the car. It used to do that every time but now not so much. I can still move the wheel around with the lever but Im annoyed that I have to bring the wheel down before I drive

BMW SERIES 5 E39 Headlight Adjustment Stepper Motor calibration

Is there a way to calibrate the Headlight adjustment Stepper motors They are found with this feature LWR All 1999 model year systems are also equipped with LWR (Headlight Beam Throw Control). This system automatically adjusts the vertical position of the headlight beams to compensate for vehicle loads ensuring optimum beam throw. LWR components and func- tion is described further on in this section.

Maybe the adjuster for that side or was installed incorrectly (not fully seated in the socket). Barring that perhaps you can simply disassemble the headlight assembly and move the nut on the stepper motor shaft enough to allow for more adjustment on the upper adjuster. The servo wont know the difference.

JimLev The manual adjusters in photo 2 were replaced with upgraded aluminium parts. Photos 3 and 4 are the items of interest. Im wondering if parts 6 7 and 13 on RealOEM can be adjusted to cause the stepper motors to seat where the motors project the beams higher. If so then I can simply use the manual adjustments on the headlight capsules to more properly align them. As it is right now the lights

BMW SERIES 3 E46 All four seat motors dead

My drivers seat will not adjust at all. Usually when its a motor one would only lose one direction. I find it difficult to believe that all four would be dead suddenly. I checked the fuse for drivers adjustments (65 I think) but it was fine. Ive also checked the tracks and theres nothing blocking them. I hear no motor sounds at all and although I havent taken the seat out a quick look underneath shows

BMW SERIES 5 E39 Drivers seat adjustment

I just found out that the drivers seat and steering wheel can not be adjusted but the two rear mirrors work perfectly. I checked all the fuses and were fine. What can be the problem I was suspecting the hydraulic actuators located under the seat. Any ideas fellows

Hydraulic That went out with the 55 Cadillac All are electric motors these days. THe connector for the seat controls sometimes works its way out. Check that behind the panel where the adjustment switches are.

I have a 1999 528i. The following problem occurs when I turn off the key A motor seems to run in an attempt to reset the seat and steering wheel positions. I can only solve the problem by pressing one of the preset buttons or the steering wheel adjustment lever.

BMW SERIES 5 E60 E61 Comfort seat adjustment

The e60 comfort seats are the best seats Ive ever had. However just becuse they provide such flexible adjustments it can take a lot of time to adjust the seat to your liking. I am hoping someone has come up with some kind of a simple method

BMW SERIES 5 E39 Fixing the twisting seat problem when making adjustments to the seat

I have a 2003 bmw 530i and when I adjust the electrical seats on both the driver side and passenger side it begins to twist. I do not know what to do and how to correct the problem. Does anyone know what the fix is other than to purchase a whole new seat (which I do not want to do)

The problem is that the cable housings are 38 longer than they should be. That allows the actual cable to disengage from the motor. Shortening the housing makes the cable engage the motor. Sent from BimmerApp mobile app

BMW SERIES 5 E39 Another seat twist thread

Ok Ive read endless threads on seat twist repair and thought no problem I can do that. Problem is the cable that needs repairing is the one going to height adjust on the right side of the drivers seat and it seems nearly impossible to get to all the screws to undo the cable from the motor. My preference (method A) is to remove the metal cable sheath end shorten the plastic and re-attach the end. Method

My original problem was not seat back twist but seat bottom tilt when using height adjust. In other words one side of the height adjust was working and one was not resulting in the seat leaning you towards the center console. All the general tips on seat cable repair apply but accessing the motorcable mounting screws on the sport seats appears to be more difficult than the comfort seats or other bmw

BMW SERIES 5 E34 My seats broke---URGENT

Hey Everyone I got a 1990 525i great car. I got a problem with the passenger seat. i reclined it all the way down so i could move some big boxes and then when i went to recline it back up it wouldnt. You can just hear the motor running but it doesnt move. Any ideas on ways to fix it myself cuz i really dont have the money to bring it in. Thanks -Winston

stretches or the inner cable shortens due to wind-up and it disengages either at the motor or at the worm drive for the seatback. It can be repaired with the seat either in or out of the car. Since it was my first attempt I took the seat out & worked on it upsidedown on a pad. Ill reference two urls from the bimmer.org archives for this with due credit to the original authors Bimmer.org 7 series

BMW SERIES 3 E46 Cold air under front seat

Ive not run across this in any car Ive owned before... So driving across the vast prairie of NE Colorado late at night the backside of my legs just freeze If I place my hand in the area between the bottom of my drivers seat and the floor there is a cold breeze blowing forward towards my legs. Any idea where this is coming from I do have warm air coming from the rear vent under the front seat. And this

Quote Originally Posted by marlin1881 I think I found the problem... I had my wife drive and I was in the back seat.

Warm air comes out of those vents just fine and it correctly forces air along the outside edge of the car where it obviously should be most cold. BUT and heres the issue I believe there is a huge amount of cold-temperature-conductive-transfer (or something like that) through the underneath frame of the front seats that its like a little refrigerator under there. I think the bolts that hold the chairs solid to the body are transferring cold to the front seat frames and electric motors. The warm air from the vents is circulating along the outside floor well hitting the back of the floor well going to the inside of the floor well and then going forward under the front seat along the freezing cold metal framemotoretc. and pushing cold air going forward onto the back of the legs of whoever is sitting in the front seats. Its basically making an elongated circle from the vent back to the front of the car routed under the front seat. STRANGE... The problem is how to fix it. Ive thought of insulating the front seat frames but there might be some issue with the insulation getting into the seat adjustment track. So I think Im going to do one or both of the following 1) deflect some air from the under-seat vents towards the inner portion of the car which should break up that circle that collects cold and transfers it forward 2) make a little curtain on the lower-edge front-portion of the front seat which will stop any cold air transfer from coming forward. Ill let you all know what I come up with. Obviously the colder outside that it is the more cold that gets transferred into the frame of the front seats. Interesting. You must have some darn cold ambient conditions there If you opt for trying option 2. I probably would try installing OEM First Aid Kit boxes with a back drape to add a little additional storage (for maps tools flashlights or even First Aid Kit) in addition to acting as a curtain as the E46s tend to be so skimpy on storage areas. [BTW if you screw around under there make sure you do a search and disconnect power properly to avoid triggering an air bag warning from the seatbelt tensioner connections etc. can be irritating] see httpbmwfans.infopartscatalogE4...A0226%C2%A0450

BMW SERIES 5 E39 Sports seat power adjuster wouldnt work

Driver side power seat just went out. Circled in the picture below. It wouldnt function. I searched this forum but found nothing. Any ideas Any one had the same problem

This is a first...Ive never seen anyone have an issue with the thigh extension before. But can you fill in some details You wrote that the thigh extension just went out...so do we assume that it is totally unrelated to any other circumstance Like did anything roll under or get lodged under the seat recently or a few weeks ago and you just noticed it now when you went to adjust the seat Or perhaps your GFMomSister borrowed the car and perhaps they jammed their purse below the seat while also readjusting the seat When you press the button do you hear the motor Or is it completely silent along with no movement If you can hear the motor but theres no movement...then the problem may be the flexshaft cable. If there is no motor noise then the drive is dead (literally or now electrical power) or something is wrong with your switch. In the diagram below item 15 is the drive for the thigh extension (depth adjustment)...check the electrical harness or flexshaft cable (Im not sure if it has one though...but take a look see). httpwww.realoem.combmwshowparts...52&fg10&hl70

If youre getting some of the adjustment directions to work and you only have one that isnt its usually the motor thats the problem not the switch.

BMW SERIES 5 E39 Seat Twist But Not Really.

Hi all Im new to the forum though I consider myself to be pretty well versed in the mechanics and operation of E39s. Ive searched the forum many times for a solution to this issue but have come up with no answers. Heres my situation. My passenger front electric seat got twisted at some point the height adjustment motor failed on one side. Now if it were as simple as that itd dedinitely be fixed by

The cable sticks out of the housing just a bit. Instead of putting a bit in your drill you put that little cable nub in there and tighten the bit holder down in it. The drill spinning that cable in the housing is what engages the gears at the adjustment points. Cables attach at the motors on both ends of the motor driving the left and right of say the seat height. By pulling one cable and using a drill you can move just one side of the seat height to get it level with the other side.

There are instructions on the internet about removing the seat and Id get a set of use the Bently manual if you have one.
