This question may sound abolutely elementary, but I just purchased a 2002 530i, and am having issues with the seatbelts.

How do you adjust the height on the front seats? They seem locked in, and the owners manual says nothing (or perhaps I missed it).

Thanks for the help.

Seatbelt height moves proportional to the front/back position of the seats, the theory being that the shorter your legs, the shorter your torso.

However, that doesn't work for everyone. Some folks have disconnected the two from each other so the seatbelt height stays fixed. You may want to search this forum and others like www.bmwtips.com.

Thanks

Yes, I found out the height adjusts relative to where the seat is. Nice for the driver, but a pain for my wife who is short (but maybe wants to sit back.

Thanks for the help.
