Z3 1998 seat moves

The seat is not locking. How hard is it to fix? Moves back and forward about 1/2 inch.

Requires seat removal. There are some plastic parts in the seat/rail interface that break. Easy to fix, several DIY cures work.

Each seat has a little flat rectangular piece that fits between rail and seat base, and apparently is the actually sliding surface for the seat adjustment. It is steel with a plastic insert. That plastic deteriorates and becomes loose in the steel part. Follow the link someone else posted for the www.waycool etc site. It has detailed instructions with pictures.
