I spoke to the Holden dealer about this and he said to me you have to buy and complete bottom of the seat. That around $800 for each seat. told him forget about it.Yes there is a fix for this. You will need to go and a washer from your holden dealer.
Part number is 92148372 (you need two, one for each seat) and install it under the lead-screw retaining bolt. (The lead-screw retaining bolt is the bolt with a torx head under the seat). It's attached to the big long screw thingy. Both front seats need it done.
Alternatively if you can't get that part which a steel washer from holden, you are going to need to remove the one already under the lead-screw bolt and get one with EXACTLY the same inner and outer dimentions BUT EXACTLY 1mm thicker.
Some tips for you,
Before removing seat bolts x4, adjust seat (forward or back) to the middle.
Remove the plastic seat track covers
Remove the seat bolts x4
No need to take seats out, just remove the seat bolts and then tilt the whole seat back and prop/rest it on the back seat.
Remove lead-screw bolt (dont lose the nylon washer under the metal washer you have to replace), swap the washer with the thicker new one.
Install and tighten the lead-screw bolt back up.
Install the seat.
Rang Holden and they are NO LONGER Available. GruuuuuughRubbish, just quote that part number, you need four of them. If they are NLA just go grab four with the same inner and outer dimentions and 3.5mm thick.
The washers are for the WH Statesman and Calais with all direction electric seat bases. The drivers seat bases for the Statesmen and Calais models share the same seat bases.
