    Default seat cables

    I found these parts on my ETK for front seat cables (flex shaft vertical seat adjuster) but it does not list a part# for these items. Could someone double check thier ETK and see if they can get a part # for front seat cables.
    its a 93 525i

    thanks in advance,

    screw buying new ones, that's too much extra work to remove them compltetly, remove the end of the cable from the motor paying attention to how far the shiney metal end is stuck onto the black plastic cable cover, and pull the center driveshaft out then heat the metal end of the cable till you can pull it off with pliers, cut between 1/8" and 1/4" from the black plastic cable cover then reheat the metal end piece and stick it back on the end as far as it was stuck on orignally. that's in a nutshell how to permantly fix the seat cables, new cables will shrink just like the old ones did
