On my X3 you had to PULL the red button out and then press the desired memory position. Afterwards then you return the memory button to it's original position.

thanks i will try that and let you know if that works. i cant beleive that this is a forum for e34 and no one has memory on thier seat but an x3 driver responds. this was an easy ? for someone who owned an e34 for a while but no one will reply for days very disappointed.

set the seat and steering wheel to where you want it, then press and hold the memory button and then punch the memory number, 1 or 2, then release. only got one hand because of surgery.

i tried it that way but it just starts to move to the old setting. maybe my red memory button does not work.
