    I have a 98 M Roadster and the driver seat won't raise or lower. I hear what sounds like the switch working, but the gears don't seem to work....or so I think.

    Thouhts/suggestions?

    Upon further review, the threaded "bolt" seems to be frozen in place...will Limey have to take the seat off for repair

    I have finally given up trying to figure out what "will Limey have to take the seat off for repair" means...

    Do you hear the raise/lower motor run when you push the button? I had a similar problem on my 98 M3 and it turned out to be a cracked nylon gear in the mechanism.

    I actually got it fixed...the motor was working and the screw that is in there was just stuck in place....works perfectly now!
