seat bolsters dont work

hey guys, ive been having this issue w my m3....sometimes the freaking seat bolsters dont work!!. i dont know why but they just dont inflate or deflate sometimes, and other times they do. i have manual seats not power, maybe it has something to do with that? idk.
anyways, let me know if someone has manual seats also, and has had this issue

For manual seats, the bolster inflate? Did not know that. For power seats, the bolsters pivot inward and outward via a rocker button.

I have the same problem, the seat bolsters on both seats stopped working. I hope it is just the fuse that went but I will have to take it to the dealer to get it fixed.

This just happened to me, did anyone take it to the dealer? If it's a fuse, anybody know how I could get to it to replace?

I still haven't gotten this fixed! I went to the dealer a few weeks ago and told them the problem. I asked if they could just give the fuses so I could change them myself but they said they couldn't and that I would need to make a service appointment.

I still haven't gotten around to brining it in, if you find out it is just a fuse please let me know which fuse it was. I checked the fuse diagram and it lists multiple fuses for the seats, it doesn't tell you which fuse is for which component of the seat. I searched google and the forum and could not find any info on which fuse is for the bolsters.

can you take out all fuses relating to seats and test them?
or visually inspect them?
