Hi, I have seen a few online forums where there appears to be a problem with the drivers seat maintaining height. I have this problem currently, car now been in for fix twice and about to go for a third time and ford mechanic says he can't understand it as he has completely replace seat and mechanism. But if this is a general fault then it would explain. Any feedback would be gratefully received.

Hello and welcome to the forum!

 

I honestly don't know, but it might be safer to leave it on its lowest setting at the moment so it does not drop while you are driving, , , untill you get it sorted

I had a similar problem in my Punto...general picture was that I'm too heavy for it lol

I have the Focus one set at the lowest anyway.

Had it higher in the Punto to accommodate for the typical Italian driving position...seat reclined, close to the wheel, legs spread :-P

If you cant sort the problem out, the are two possible options i can think of.

 

A. get the seat mechanism welded to your exact height

 

B. get some cushions to sit on, or some sort of pad that raises you up, something similar to childs booster seats, infact the kids version may be an option if you are very small (no offence ment with regards to small)
