E92 M3 Lumbar Support Controls Broken?

i ran into a strange failure today on my fairly trouble-free 2008.

i have some inexplicable back pain lately, and today, i decided it was time to fiddle with the lumbar support. usually i have it deflated as it bothered me in the past.

anyway, when i reached down to try to adjust it, the circular 4-way directional pad was spinning freely in place. i couldn't get the adjustments to work.

i haven't adjusted it in months to maybe even up to a year, so i suspect it may have happened sometime during a service or valet incident.

anyone else ran into this?

also my drivers side window makes an awful rattly noise. have a service appointment on the 21st to try to address these issues.

cheers!

Seen this before. The button comes apart internally(happens to a lot of BMW's actually).

They should just replace it pretty quickly as long as it's in stock.

The window issue, I have seen the regulators come loose from time to time.

Good luck!
