    Have you tried the pump handle on the side of the seat to get it to its highest point?

        I think only the higher trim levels had height adjustable seats. The best option would be to get a height adjustable seat from a higher spec car from a breakers yard. It will probably fit straight on to the same runners.

        Alternatively use a good quality cushion to raise your height, and fit a good quality tailored seat cover over the top to keep it in place and looking smart. (not just the cheapo stretchy universal ones)

        Or fit spacers under the seat runners. You would need to unbolt the runners from the floor, and fit some washers under them to raise the height. But a useful height rise would mean quite a lot of spacers, probably requiring new longer ,high tensile bolts tightened to the correct torque. And too much height could affect the safety dynamics. If its not safe and done to a professional standard it could fail the mot.

              Usually it's on the door side, rather than the central console side, but worth having a play with all the levers the seat has
