Passenger Seat Relay/fuse Location?

my buddy sat down in the 525i yesterday and broke the passenger seat. i picked up another one today and when i plugged it in the motors would not finction. it is either a bad relay or fuse or possible the actual control box on the side of the seat. Obviously I would like to try and see if it is a fuse first before buying a control box but i cant find anything related to the seat in the fuse box. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I did not know there was a bad fuse under the seat. What year is your car?

FYI... When my seat started to act funny, it turned out to be the side control switch. This is an expensive part, so as a bandaid I took it off the seat, sprayed it with contact cleaner, and but it back. The seat worked for a while, but I don't need to adjust it very often so I'm just getting by for now. However, if you don't have power to your seat that is a different problem.
