Passenger power seat moving on its own

Sometimes when a passenger gets off the seat it starts moving back for no reason and will stop if they sit down again on it.

Its dangerous for people sitting at the back.

I had this problem about 2 years ago and it suddenly went away but now its doing it again. Doesnt do it all the time.

Whats up ?

Sounds like a problem with the actuation unit. Not sure if I've ever seen this problem before so I'm not sure. I know my dad's E53's seats do weird things but that's mainly because of the memory unit on the driver's side. Passenger side on the E46 shouldn't have a memory unit, so it's most likely the actuation unit (p/n 61308099072). Maybe a bad connection in there that gets shifted when there's weight being moved onto or off the seat. Let us know what you find out.
