    My 03 540 Sport seat bottoms (passenger and driver) "make a racket" randomly when adjusted forward or backward. There is no apparent reason for when they will or will not adjust quietly (or noisily.) Any comments would be appreciated.

    Hope this helps...

    Sounds like the guide rails may need lubricating or the teeth have worn to the point of slippage...just an observation.
