Customer Question

assumming you know about the seat adjustment mechanism in the BMW Mini one (7) 2005 model, please tell me how to fix the broken cable that adjusts the seat. It is the inner cable small in length and braised and crimped at both ends (now snapped in the middle).

it is attached to a very strong spring which requires incredible force to adjust it and the cable design is simply not fit for purpose for such a spring and regular use in a  2 door.
