Default Driver side adjustable seat

Hi gang. I have SPF633 (1999) and have driven it for 11 years with the seat in a mid or perhaps next to last position. Unfortunately a long-legged mechanic recently adjusted it all the way back. I've tried everything to get it back to my preferred and safe position, both seated (and pulling lever up) and wedging a wooden stake behind the seat while reaching down to the lever and prying on the stick. I don't want to damage the fiberglass. Any suggestions?

He probably jammed it. Take out the four bolts under the car and
take the seat out. Should be able to fix the slide bracket

The seats are bolted thru a steel plate on the chassis below the fiberglass. You may have a series of washers between the seat and the floor that adjusts the rake of the seat front and back that you may want to take notice of. Later cars have a wire for seat belt monitors yours probably not. A great time to add a drain port at the low point of the floor under the seat too. I replaced the original bolts with studs to make the reinstallation easier from the topside. You can easily restack the washers (if they are there) on the studs and keep them in place with tape and easily put the 4 studs thru the holes on the floor. I also ran a drill thru the mounting plate holes to enlarge them slightly to ease installation. Let us know what "Treasures" you find under the seat.

I installed new seat adjusters on mine when I purchased it. Take the 4 bolts out and remove the seat make the repairs and re-install. Real easy.
