Mein Auto: 1996 750il armored
750il driver seat upper recline inop

Hello all. Wondering if anyone could be so kind as to enlighten me as to why my upper recline function on my '96 750il is not working? The motor motors, but that is all. Seat is stuck in the reclined position on the upper portion only. Kinda annoying as I am not a fan of the laid back look! Any help, PLEASE!!! And thanks!

Is your motor and gear assembly new or used?
Is it OEM?
Is it from a parted out vehicle?
If so, what vehicle (year and model) is it from and can you guarantee it is the same for the original poster's vehicle?
What is the part number of what you have so the original poster can look it up and verify compatibility?
