Thread: Height Adjustment in 73 Sport Seats

    Height Adjustment in 73 Sport Seats

    My 73 has sport seats. I have heard that they are height adjustable to three different heighths. Mine are as high as they go, and they are too high for me (and for good handling). Does anyone know how the height adjustment works on the 73 sport seats?

    There are 3 holes fore and aft on both seat rails under the seats.

    The adjustments go up and down according the which holes ... and ... If wanted to tilt the seat higher in back you can use a higher hole then in front ... and of course, vice versa

    Hope this helps

    Thanks Chuck. Do I just tilt the seat forward to get at the holes, or do I have to take the seat out?

    I posted to this on the other forum...

    The front bolts can be reached pretty easily...tip the seat forward to get to the rear bolts, or tip the latch mechanism to get to them (you need 3 hands for this to make it easy...).
