Info on electric seat back rest

It seems one side of the driver side back rest will not engage When trying to recline or raise the back the left side only responds causing a torque effect
Anyone ever experience this and if so would love to know how to approach it
Thanks

Did you by any chance fix this problem yourself? I'm having the same problem and I hope its just a loose connection, but I'm not sure which ones to look for. Thanks.

yeah, you can diy they say in about 1-2 hours and there is a video to buy for $40 that explains it and i believe its on sale at half off which is pretty cheap considering the dealer will charge a fortune to fix the problem! the website is www.bmwtwistedseatrepair.com good luck! i currently have the same problem but will wait til spring to fix it! he has a free video on his website explaining the procedure and stuff!
