here is the totally bizarre problem I've been having with my 22-way adjustable driver's seat: It will actually randomly change shape while driving (I say randomly, but there is more to it which I describe below).  Although the settings on the menu remain unchanged, the side bolsters suddenly move out (making the seat wider).  At times, the get slightly tighter.


This happens VERY rarely - like once a week.  I finally found the predictor though - it only happens when I'm driving up a very steep hill.  I live in Los Angeles and when I'm driving up the 405 from the Westside to the valley (i.e, "coming over the hill") it happens ever single time.  


Anybody else have that?  Two separate dealers have told me I am nuts, but I assure you it is a real phenomenon (that doesn't rule out me being nuts, but that's another issue).

I would try isolating the fault by "squishing" around on the seat (to see if your shifing body weight is the trigger, and not related to pitch angle).
