As you may know, I recently put in my Half-Leather Seats from a GTi and the height adjuster isn't working :(

I'm guessing this is because my car doesn't have something that the GTi does. Mine's a Finesse BTW.

This man (or maybe girl) is on the ball.

If you need to, take a feed off one of the wire's running to the back of the car that runs along the floor between the seat and the botton of the door. If I remember correctly, there is an orange wire, pretty thick, so that would provide a good feed, just make sure you check it for power before you go cutting anything.

i have noticed that you cant adjust this. i have just fitted gti half leathers,

and on my finesse seats you could move it back and forward and had the option to tilt it.

is there a switch of something???

So do Finesse's not have a connector the same as a GTi that would enable the switch to work?

No they don't.

I have a finesse with the GTi seats added, apparently it needed to be wired in, Steve did it for me at the Herts meet...............
