[DML] Re: Raising the seat height



The quick and dirty way would be to stack some washers under the seat 
on the mounting bolts. If you look under the car you'll see four nuts 
on 4 studs that come down thru the floor. Take the nuts off and lift 
the seat out (run it all the way forward to clear the seat belt 
bolt). Normally they stick out about an inch, so you could easily 
raise the seat up to about 1/2 inch this way.
