There are blocks you can buy at most medical supply stores that will bolt onto the pedals for short people. This might be an inexpensive solution and would keep her in a normal seat position.

Is there a way to raise the pedals so i can reach them?

Hi Susan:
Pedal heights are typically not adjustable. You usually adjust the seat so that the pedals are at the right distance. Seat height is also important for easy vision. If the seat is in the best position for you and you're still not comfortable with the pedals, you could have blocks bolted to the pedals to make them more convenient for you. It would be a handyman custom project. Make them secure, and with a non slip surface.
Hope this helps.

No brake fluid reaching rear brakes

Your problem could be several things #1 Are you bleeding the brakes properly , start at passenger side rear wheel. Have someone t sit in drivers seat Have them push brake pedal down ,open bleeder.,close bleeder ,have them let brake pedal up . push pedal down again ,you open bleeder again than close bleeder,have brake pedal up continue doing this until a stream of brake fluid without air comes out.( never pump the brake pedal while bleeding) if this is not working after 30 or more cycles you may need to replace your master cylinder. if this was helpful please leave goodback

Change the brake fluid

This typically takes 2 people and good communication. One person needs to be in the drivers seat and the other under the vehicle.The steps go as follows. 1. Locate the drainage nipple (10mm on most Toyota's) on the brake farthest away from the master cylinder 2. Crack this open while the person in the drivers seat slowly pushes the pedal to the floor. 3. Announce when the pedal is about to reach the floor, warning the person under the car to tighten the nipple back down. 4. At this point, the person in the drivers seat can release the pressure from the brake pedal. 5. Continue this process until you see clean DOT 3 brake fluid draining through the nipple, making sure the reservoir has plenty of fluid. 6. Repeat these steps for the remaining brakes, going from farthest to closest.

BIG TIP! Set up a communication system before starting, so each person knows what to do when a command is announced.

Van backdoor opens up very high (2.1 m) which is very high to reach when wanting to close again. Weight of the door is also heavy requiring much effort - stretch and strenght - and hence becoming a manual...

there are what you call door shocks on each side of your rear door that extend upwards when the door is maybe could look for shorter shocks to replace them with,but that can lead to a great deal of research and money. what i suggest you do is go to an auto parts store and purchase a pack of long bungee cords[rubber ones] attach one on each side of the door and fasten it to the back seat,then when you open the back door,the bungee cords will only let the door go up only so far.this may take a couple of trys to get the right length but worth the effort.done it myself so know exactly how you feel. good luck and thank you for choosing

We purchased a new Tucon in Jan 2010. The vehicle

So how can we help? Didn't you test drive it before purchase? Check the owners manual for possible adjustments you can make to the seat and steering column positions. Some vehicles allow adjustment of the pedals as well. PS, I'm 6'2" and not European and that's average for my country.

Power driver seat in F150 moves back but not forward

Just picking at you. It would have to be a bad switch. Forward and back are on the same circuit switch just reverses the power and ground to the motor.

Room for adults in back sit

The extended cab version has two doors in its rear, with small jump seats, which adults will find difficult to fit comfortably. The larger crew cab version has four doors, with a split-seat in the back allowing three adults to fit without a problem.
