Drivers Seat Height Adjustment

My drivers seat adjustment is broken. I have a 2003 156 with cloth seats. When you try to raise the height of the seat with the manual adjuster only the right hand side raises and the left hand side does not. This leaves you no option but to have the seat at it's lowest point. Strangely though with the seat raised (only the right hand side) you can physically lift the left hand side up but it just falls back down again as soon as you sit on it. Clearly the mechanism is broke. If I take the seat out will it be obvious and easy to fix or do I need a new seat. The third and cheapest option is just to keep the seat at it's lowest position. Regards, Lee
