I took my car into Irvine BMW because my front seat is loose. When I turn into a corner the seat clicks side to side as if there were some play. The have already replaced the rails and now say nothing can be done. Is this true?

: What's the official solution to the driver's seat
: clicking/movement problem? I've seen two solutions
: here: 1. "sliding jaws", 54 12 8 105 582 and another
: 2. "rails" 1 52 10 8 207 203
: "cover" 1 52 10 8 217 315

: Are both possible solutions or is one or the other the
: accepted solution now?

: Thanks

Replacing the rails did not fix mine.

But lubing the bushings, and installing the sliding jaws did.

The clickling, and sideways movement are 2 separate problems. The jaws are for the sideways movement of the seatback.
