seat height

Post by IMP » Thu Feb 01, 2018 4:18 pm

Hello, out there.

Just bought a CX3 Nav Sport AWD AUTO, after trading in my CX5 ( too big for my wife to drive down the narrow lanes where we live).

I would really like to gain another inch in height, on both the drivers seat and the front passenger. It appears to be quite straightforward to use, say , an aluminium block and an extended high tensile bolt to achieve this, has anyone found a solution, please?

Other than that, really pleased with the much improved economy from the 1.5dci unit, over the 2.2 that I had in the CX5. The LED Headlamps are also much better , but it is strange that there is no accessory socket in the boot!

Cheers

With something as important as secure seating, please bear in mind that any change from the standard factory fitments may invalidate your insurance.

And probably your warranty.

Hey IMP, did you get the seat height increased? I need to do this also - my wife is just over 5' tall - an extra 1" to the seat height would make all the difference
