Mein Auto: 2005 750i Sport
Steering column - vertical adjustment

My 750i has electric steering column adjustment as I think they all do. The reach adjustment works fine but the up and down doesn't work at all. If I move the switch up and down I can hear the motor attempting to do something but I get no movement.

Has anyone encountered this before?

no - but I wouldn't mind disabling the ability for the wheel to retract every time I get out of the car just to minimize that from happening.

Try the link above as it worked like a charm for me and it wasn't a tricky fix either.
