7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
Discussion of BMW's 4th generation E65/E66 7 Series flagship. The E65 generated much controversy, due to its radical styling and iDrive user difficulties. Nonetheless, the E65 broke records to become the best-selling 7-series iteration ever, especially after its 2005 facelift.

I did mine on a e39 and what i did was. Rolled the seat all the way back removed the front mounting bracket bolts. Than i pressed the button to move the seat forward and removed those bolts. Adjusted the seat back to middle position. Waited till car went to sleep mode with trunk open and removed the battery. Tilted the seat removed all the connections to the seat. There was also belt tensioner line attached to the seat and unhooked that. Than after all the stuff is removed, i removed the seat and worked out side of the car. After you mount back the buckle and connect all the connections that came with the buckle that is where you do the whole process in reverse. Plug the connections back to the bottom of the seat. Put back the belt tensioner line if there is one and plug back the battery. Move the seat back put the bolts back to the front and move the seat forward and put the bolts back there. I dont think the process is any different. Make sure your steering wheel is all the way retracted towards the front so it would be easy to take out the seat. I recommend second person to remove the seat so you dont scratch up anything. Hopefully i am not wrong but i am pretty sure thats the process. If you still got lights on you need to reset them.
