Default Drivers seat motor HELP plz

A while ago my drivers seat stopped working correctly. When I tried to move the back of the seat up and down, it did nothing. Logically I went under the seat to check the motor and found it broken laying underneath the seat. I removed the motor and the pin thing or whatever comes out of the motor to turn the mechanism that actually raises the seat and stored it to order the parts whenever I had some free time. Well, after two moves, I can no longer find said motor to figure out which exact part I need.

So I need the help of the community.

There are three motors that move the base of the seat from my understanding. One moves the front nearest your knees up or down, the next one moves the seat to the front and rear of the car, and the other raises or lowers the rear of the seat up and down. That last motor is the one that I need. I also need whatever connects it to the seat to actually raise it up. I have the wiring harness intact.

My car is a 2003 manufactured 11/02. Looking for drivers side motor, for power seat with memory.

If anyone can provide me with part numbers, or a link to exactly what I need, I would be incredibly grateful.

On get BMW parts after putting in 2003 m3 and searching for seat motor, I found this part description near the bottom of the first page: motor M3; Coupe; Vertical; Driver seat. Is this is? What else do I need?

Thanks in advance,

I know its not the most interesting thread. Possibly a part number from your own motor?

Thanks in advance!

I believe I need part 05 on that diagram, but which one? since my seat has memory I am guessing the one with the part number: 52108251489. is there something that connects the motor to the seat I need as well? bleh. I'd hate to order the wrong thing.

Yeah I need the drivers side seat motor that makes the seat go forward and back if anyone has one they want to sell. They're $150 on ebay new and that seems expensive.
