Front Seat Q

Does anyone have the service manual diagram of the front driver seat?

When I clutch in or get in/out there is a slight creaking noise between what I think is the leather and the plastic housing w/ the directional seat movers. I just want a diagram so I know what can/can not be tightened. Thanks.

Check out bmwtips.com for seat creak. There aren't the pictures you want, but there are some discussions of the general problem and solution.

Greg,

I had the same issue last year and dealer replaced the seat bottom bracket to eliminate the creaking noise when getting in/out and stepping in/out of the clutch.

Eugene,
Can I do this myself? I'm assuming the part isn't too expensive. Will have to dig around and find a diagram somewhere.

Let me see if I can find the actual part # replaced so you can make a better determination if it's easy or not to perform this job.

Be careful working on the seat. You MUST disconnect the battery and possibly another connector. Otherwise your airbags might trigger.

I have another problem. Every now and then when cornering hard, it feels/sounds like something is rolling left to right or vice versa (depending on the direction of the turn). But I looked underneath the seat and nothing is loose.

"Is it the sounds that make a BMW a BMW? A BMW is designed to be heard, felt, experienced. So our engines sing. Our steering talks back. And we insist on offering manual transmissions in nearly all our models for drivers who crave them. The result is an almost telepathic oneness with the car. Just as surely as you can hear a BMW, a BMW hears you."
