This is not possible without extensive seat base modification. It would be cheaper to take the seat back to the upholsterer and have them use a thinner foam in the seat.

SOURCE: 1995 BMW 525i seat height motor works on one side of seat only

there are 2 cables that come out of the motor that operates that feture. Over time the outsdie tube of the cable streaches, causing the cable that turns inside, to come out of the transmission is drives. One way to fix this is to remove this cable and shoren the outside tube by cutting it, and then re-insall back into the transmission. This is a 50/50 chance repair. The correct way to cure this issue is to replace the lower seat frame. $$$

SOURCE: need vacuum diagram for 1974 vw beetle with 34 pic carb

Depending on your carb, distributor and transmission, you have from zero to two vacuum hoses. If you have an Autostick transmission, there's a vacuum hose running from a port in the intake manifold to the control valve on the left side wall of the engine bay. (Hint: if you've got a car that came with Autostick and that someone's converted to manual transmission, the bracket for the control valve is the perfect place for your coil.) Most people don't have this transmission even if their car came with it--it's only a three-speed and it's hard to find parts for it, so most of those cars have been converted to manual transmission. The other hose you might have is for your distributor. The port is on the left side of the carb, and a hose runs between it and the metal vacuum advance can on the side of the distributor. If you have a 009 distributor or an aftermarket distributor like an MSD you don't have the vacuum advance can; if you have an aftermarket carb like a Weber you don't have the port. Therefore...you probably don't have any vacuum lines on your engine.

if only one vacuum line then? the vacuum line goes from the vacuum advance on the side of the dizzy, to the carburettor, just around the throttle linkage if i recall. hope this helps.

SOURCE: ignition switch for a 74 vw super beetle

The plastic ignition switch is held in with a philips screw. You will need to remove the ignition lock cylinder to get to it. A easy way to check is to unplug the wires going into the back of the lock housing and plug in the new switch, without removing anything.

Low beam headlight adjustment on 2011 Chrysler 200


How to Adjust Car Headlights Level your car. Start by removing any excess weight from the trunk of the car. Also, ensure that the tire pressure in all tires is at the manufacturer's recommended levels. If possible, have somebody sit in the driver's seat, and that the gas tank is half-full. As well as this, check that your headlight aim adjustment wheel (if fitted) is at the zero position. Position your car. On level ground, park 10 to 15 feet (3.0 to 4.6 m) from a dark wall or garage door, with the front of the car aimed at the wall. A paved parking lot or level driveway is best Turn the headlights on. Do not use your high beams or fog lights. Mark the horizontal and vertical center lines of the headlight beams with masking tape to make two T's on the wall or garage door.Make sure the lights are level. Place a carpenter's level between the two marked center lines to see if they are even. If they are not even, use a tape measure to measure how far up the wall the lower mark is and lower the other center line marker to the same height. These center lines should be no higher than 3.5 feet (1.1 m) from the ground.Back your car exactly 25 feet (7.6 m) from the wall or garage door. Don't estimate the distance! Use a tape measure to make sure you are the proper distance away from the wall. Turn off the headlights. Remove the trim ring from around the headlights and locate the adjusting screws. These screws are typically found adjacent to the headlight, though some manufacturers put the screws in the engine compartment, behind the the headlights. The horizontal adjuster and the vertical adjuster should be marked.
  • Always defer to the specs in the owner's manual-Adjust each headlight separately. Block one with a sweatshirt or other object while adjusting and testing the other, since the light-bleed can make it difficult to distinguish one from the other. Have a helper sit in the driver's seat while you do the adjustments, to turn the lights on and off while you make the proper adjustments

I have just purchased a 1997 Ford Fiesta Chicane, and I don't know how to lower the drivers seat? There are two handles on the front of the seat that adjust the position (forwards and backwards) But...


Hi Chris,Are you sure there are adjustments for height in your vehicle? The controls are usually visible and not hidden. If you don't have that facility, and need it, go visit a breakers yard and buy a couple of seats that are equipped with those adjustments and fit them to your vehicle.Regards Johngee10

I recently bought a kia sportage but when i hooked up my caravan , i found that the caravan was sitting high at the front , a problem i never hadwith my previous 2 cars , how can i tell if the towbar is...


Hi, You haven't mentioned what age your Sportage is, it may have been fitted with self adjusting rear suspension which will lower the ball height after a few miles of driving with the caravan on. Please check the specification of your Sportage.
Is the kneck of the towbar (the part with the ball on it) like a swan kneck or a traditional bolted on ball? Swan kneck towbars are not usually height adjustable but bolt on balls can be adjusted by fitting a spacer plate which has three different heights. Ideally the caravan should sit level when hitched.

2001 VW Beetle. The driver's front seat adjuster


I'm assuming you have manual adjustment seats. There is a spring underneath the seat that locks the end of the lever into corresponding notches in the seat frame rail. That spring has either fallen off or broken.
