Any fixes for a auto sinking GT driver seat?

Find myself having to raise seat height every 4/5 days ....appears my seat sinks all by itself ....not a big issue but annoying none the less ...

i have the same fault, sometimes i kind of sit on the height lever as i get in, not that my arse is that big but it does happen sometimes and i end up peering over the top of the steering wheel and have to add a couple of pumps for lift. i`m hoping its this and not some leaking gas struct if there is one in the seat?

the height adjuster will need replacing, best get one from a dismantler with some worthless cloth seats as its pretty expensive from the dealer £100 or so.

Easy DIY fix, pop off the trim, undo a few bolts and pluck out the offending item, then reverse.
