Today I raised the passenger seat up. It was easy for me to do. The only tool I needed was a T40 Torx. Torx was developed for robot assembly many years ago. Yes I spelled Torx correctly. It looks like an eight pointed star drive. I used a 3/8 breaker bar and Torx socket.



I removed the two bolts on the front of the seat rail. Then slid the seat forward and tilted it all the way and removed the two rear seat rail bolts.

There are two electrical connectors under the seat that I could not easily undo so I left the seat in the car and rolled it around gently to get to the side bolts. The seat weighs nothing and was easy to work with alone.



I did one side at a time, removing the three bolts, moving the side bar and replacing the bolts.



There is one locating pin for the seat rail as you put the seat back down and bolt in in. I did the rear bolts first and the front bolts last.

There is no room under the seat for an amp or anything as the seat almost touches the floor. I could not get my hand under it while in the lowest position.

The elevation holes are 3/4 inch apart for a total change of 1 1/2 inch.



The seat at it's lowest elevation.


The seat at it's highest elevation.



The little woman in her newly adjusted seat.



Both seats slide very far forward and the seatback inclines forward as well. She's ready to race now.


I hope she doesn't wreck my ride. I won't love her any less if she does, but I'll be pissed a while. I told her before I bought the Alfa that she needs to take a high speed driving class before she can drive my car. She can use my car in the school. School is in March.
