Sharing some research I did on Bosch motors and options if your original ones dies.

These work on mk1, mk2 seats, not sure about later models of VWs.

Seat motor (Make: Bosch API v12) spec;
0301-002-405 original VW
0301-002-5xx later bosch model fits too VW
8E0881183* (C, D, E) - VW
Rear Seat Lumbar Height Motor Audi A8 S8 D2 - Genuine Bosch - 0130-002-564
BMW lumber height motor Bosch unit 0130-002-400 also near perfect match to original VW ones

Original 0130-002-405 (on top)


Audi version 0130-002-564 - bigger motor in length and cable connectors are different.






BMW 0130-002-400

finally bases screwed into the seats themselves.


one of the key things I never see people report on is when putting new seats in or rebuilding, you must grease up all the seat runners and plastic parts that seat moves on, that including seat base parts too.






Passenger seat in!!! nice compare of original to new


seat runner cover




May wonder why not head rest, its easier to install without it. I will do next update with full interior in - both seats with head rests.
