Hello again, the car has been on a couple of outings to sort out a few things. One of the most annoying is a vibrating rattle in the gear shift lever when in Drive, move it into 4 and the rattle disappears. I cannot drive around in 4 all the time so I will have to fix it. Any help will be welcome , also how do you adjust the height on the seats? I notice there is a strut of some sort under the seat but I cannot find a lever to operate it.

Seat height adjuster

Sorry what I meant to ask about the seat is, when you operate the height lever and you are in the seat is it supposed to rise? Or do you operate the lever before sitting and then when seated do you operate the lever to get the desired height?

To raise it, you should be out of the seat. You can be seated to lower it completely. If you are going in between, once again, you would be out of the seat.

Does tha shifter have a loose feel to it? Does it feel like it normally has tension pushing it towards the left? The mechanism can be removed without too much difficulty to be inspected.

The lever to adjust the seat height is on the side of the seat by the door sill.
