Hi everyone,

As the post states, I need a little mechanical help and an extra set of hands to tackle some minor inconvenience projects. The driver's side seat motors for seat-back recline and seat-bottom tilt are wonky -- need help pulling the seat and adjusting the wire cords that fit into the motors. I've done it once before on the passenger side with a friend back in southern VA, but neither of us live there anymore, and I'm somewhat new to the DMV scene and need to make new car friends.

Also need some help removing/replacing the sunroof glass to re-glue the alcantara to the sunroof cassette, as the foam/glue has dry-rotted from the sun and the material is starting to come undone at the leading edge of the cassette.

I am willing to provide some cash/venmo, beers, and conversation as means of reimbursement. I am also a fairly seasoned photographer and can potentially throw in a shoot as well, if anyone is game for that (links below).

I live in Dupont circle, DC and don't have access to a garage or have any tools, so im kinda SOL in that regard, but was hoping the loving M5Board community could help a guy out. Thanks for taking the time to read my post, and hopefully someone can lend me a helping hand!

Pic of my car for attention:

Hi Ravi,

I live around the Ashburn area and have a garage/tools available for you to use. I'm more then happy to lend a hand and meet up with you sometime soon. I don't have enough post to PM but I can DM you on instagram for a start.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Thanks Allen! saw you on my IG the other day. I sent TurboHugh an email earlier today, but if for some reason we can't get together, I'll definitely give you a shout as well. Appreciate the help, so thank you once again.

Welcome to the area. I live in Southern Maryland and could lend a hand. I have a garage and tools that should work. I dont need any money but, I would definitely want to pick your brain about photography. I am aspiring to get in the car photography scene and about to purchase my first set up. If you have any tips please let me know. You can email me if you cant p.m [email protected]

Pic of my car and garage, kind of
