Ok the drivers seat in my VNSS is bugging me...The car has VtSS seats front and back,now everytime i sit in the drivers seat it goes down about 1.5-2" with my weight and when i getout comes straight back up. Its like im sitting near the floor compared to my vn calais.. As i want the seat to stay up or get it abit higher..
I was at a wrecker on the weekend grabbing a handbrake handle and spotted a vt of some sort,so i pulled the bottom trim off the seat and it had alittle electronic box clipped to the inside of the plastic trim so im assuming that was an electric seat. After removing the trim i took a look at the rest of the base and it looks nothing like mine.
Take the bottom trim of mine and there is like a large wheel surrounded by a spring or something and have no idea what it does. So im assuming there should be a leaver or something for height adjusting. Just tring to figure out why it goes up and down by itself when i sit in it. Worst come worst i'll put some wood blocks under the seat to stop it from going down when i sit in it.

hrmm very interesting, i checked my vn calais and it has the extendable handle to raise the seat. Now it makes sense i found the same handle sitting in the map pocket of the vt seat. Now im thinking the previous owner of my car must have converted the vt ss seat onto the vn rails...
