4C Seat Adjustment

Hi All,

I didn't buy my 4C brand new from the dealer so i'm unsure if this is true or not.
I remember at an AROC event someone mentioned the dealer can adjust the angle of the 4C seats for free and without necessarily needing to book it in.

Is any of this true?

Also how easy/hard is this to do? Is it a simple thing or does the whole seat need to be removed from the rails? Surely it should be able to pitch back more than it is?


Next week i'll be embarking on a 3500km Euro road trip and the wife has asked if I could get the seat to pitch back a little more.


Thanks in advance

Its just height adjustment and you can do it easy enough at home.

Yup I thought i'd have a look at it when I got home and looked simple enough so pulled out my tool kit and 30 minutes later from making the decision to do it, I had the seat adjusted.

Although this was meant to make it more comfortable for my wife, she now has no leg room to be able to place bags/laptop etc in the foot well (apparently).

So i'm putting it back to standard again lol.

Anyway some pics of the job incase anyone wants to prepare before they start.

I used a TORX Size 40, and a socket set. My socket set comes with a large and a small ratchet and I ended up using both, the large one to do the initial break of the screws, and the little one to put them back in (as space gets tighter when you lift the front all the way up). Also bare in mind when lifting the seat all the way to the top position at the front, you loose pretty much all of the space behind the seat (which becomes a problem when you are going to embark on a 10 day European road trip through the alps with two people).
