Unfortunately no repair was mentioned, only temporary mesures ,I guess so one could drive "safely" to a stealer. I can't set the seat in one position because I am altruistic and I allow other members of the family to drive the car.
There is something in the seat ( a switch or a relay, that makes a clicking sound at the same time as the seat is moving. It is dependent on the shape rather then the weight of the driver's bottom, as it triggers most when our 20 y.old slim 180 lbs uses it on a bumpy road.
Is there a difference in design between 93/940i and 735 ?

I'm not sure if a complete repair was mentioned...but there are some temporary fix suggestions. Good luck

Where do I start fixing (myself????) the driver's seat in my 93/740i, that moves forward on its own when driving and especially when turning (right?) and braking. It is annoying and frankly unsafe when you suddenly get squashed against the steering wheel. Bentley is, as usually, no help.
