E39 Electric Memory Seat Install Guide 'How to' PIC HEAVY

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

Sorry for the ultimate thread revival.

 

I am contemplating doing the comfort seat retrofit into my 2001 530D with manual seats.

This is the go-to thread for all the information required for the swap, however, due to the age of the thread, some of the pictures have been moved. 

Does anybody have a pdf document with the comprehensive instructions for the retrofit?

Any help will be highly appreciated.

Yusuf

Hi

I've installed everything I just wanted to ask does the memory work without coding as my memory buttons don't work. I'm going to get the cable and software soon to code them.

Does this mean that I've wired it wrong or it just needs coding?

Thanks guys

I've never had to code anything and it's all worked first time

Morning kids.

 

I'm getting a  lot of PM's regarding my install guides and that the photobucket pictures won't show due to photobucket's policy.

 

I have moved to a different host but moving all pictures and then hotlinking them will take a lot of time, which I do not have at the moment.

 

In the mean time please download the photobucket fix plugin for Firefox or Chrome

Hi folks. I cant see any pic on this post... Can someone update the image that are here??? Thnx... Raymond great post....Thnx  

 

 

Postimg has changed from .org to .cc.

 

Invision has a workaround to automatically change from .org to .cc and it has been implemented on many forums so expect this to work on here soon also.

 

In the mean time, you can click on a picture and change the URL from .org. to .cc

 

I have spent hours on end to port all my pictures from photobucket to postimg and I simply do not have the time to do this all again sorry.

Hello guys, 

Amazing topic, I am in the process of installing memory seats also, but I have a question regarding the K72, aren't all e39.s equipped with the cut off relay? I own 2 and both cut off power after 16 min. Non have power seats. Why can't we get the ve+ ,for ex ,from cigarette lighter.

because the k72 relay in this case is for the mem seats + heat

I am doing this soon so have made a PDF with the images missing from Raymond's first post, plus some other useful additions. 

Hopefully this helps till the links are sorted.

I have added the pictures to my first post one last time after multiple PM's and now getting Google requests from people...

 

I've given a lot of time to this forum but I think it's time to say a final good-bye.

 

I have enjoyed my time on here and have made many friends but I think things have changed. I did try to help out after Darren passed but the atmosphere that once was just isn't here anymore.

 

Please enjoy my E39 retrofit guides whilst they're still 'live' and I hope it will inspire some others to keep retrofitting to their E39/E38's

Love you mate, great memories of the forum from when I joined in 2009 to when I stopped having spare time to mess with BMWs circa 2017, keep in touch on FB!

Greetings, I have managed to install the electric memory heated seats but having issues programming the SM and it doesn't show on ZCS either. I just wonder if anyone here could help me ? I have a NCS Expert tool and have done some coding before. Thanks in advance.
