adjusting drivers seat hight

Asked by Dec 02, 2013 at 04:22 PM about the 2005 MINI Cooper Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I need the seat about another inch or so higher than it adjusts to, is there any way that it
can be manually done or would it have to be a special request at original purchase

There is a little handle to the left side of the seat, it has an oval opening. Simply pull it up a few times and the seat will rise

Mine goes up but it does not go down

I'm having the same problem with my seat, 2002 R53. Can't get it to go back down, tried everything except removing the seat.
