This is quite funny because the bug got me confused for some time.
the steering wheel adjustment lever is not reversed when controlling depth.

I filmed it here:

Lol.. how is that even possible? Reversed wires, I assume, somehow? You'd think the plug would make that impossible.... maybe as you say the actual actuator handle is totally upside down.

And, that IS depth (IN and OUT), unless I'm seeing something wrong. You mean 'UP and DOWN' (height) works correctly? Which is weirder still, if depth is backwards......

Wonder what other controls they can invert in software? Opens the door for some pretty nefarious situations...o_O

So this was a software issue!

The seat support was replaced and all my profiles stoped working because they are actually stored on the seat. The seat also stores the steering wheel position.
The firmware on the seat was wrong and that is why the control was reversed. They updated the seat firmware and the car's and everything started to work.

We didn't know that about the controls on the seat. Thanks for sharing. We're taking our car in Monday for it's annual and they will be replacing one of our seats so the post couldn't have been more timely for us!
