    Audi s3 passenger seat problems.

    Hi guys, bit of a problem with my passenger seat, the controls have stopped working, it won't tilt backwards for forwards and the lower back support won't move, but the switch closest to the front to make the full seat move up and down still works, I have heard this is common. Will it be a switch I need to replace, cheers.

    There are micro-switches inside the seat, IIRC they are on the same side as the switches you use to adjust the seat. They are tiny - about 12mm x 5mm.

    You really need to have a look at the A3/S3 interior manual as you'll struggle to find them without it - you are also likely to have to take some parts of the seat apart to get full access unless you have tiny hands.

    There is some more info in this post - including a link to the manual, plus a link to another thread which has the part number if the micro switch is knackered.
