    the memory on mine no longer works which is a pain - took it to a garage who told me that they had fixed it, which they hadnt lol

    doesnt bother me much anymore, just have to move it back once someone gets into the back - which is rare!

    I had a problem with the drivers seat the handle on the side would tip the seat forward but not move the seat forward, turned out there is a plastic bracket which mounts the cable to the seat. I removed the seat tipped upside down on the kitchen table and drilled a small hole and screwed the bracket back on.

    Sorry but mine works perfectly!!!
    had a mk5 vw gti 3dr - those seats were a right pain - went in twice to be 'repaired' but still came back the same
