    Hi all, first post on here just recently bought a 2001 S3 very happy with my car. Today i was sat in the passenger seat and noticed that i could make it go lower than my drivers seat. Is this normal? The driver seat goes up and down fine but seems to stop a bit high. I searched on here and it seems a lot of people have trouble with the motors stopping completely but haven't found anything about them stopping short.
    Thanks

    They both seem the same to me, I doubt the seats are different in any way other than where the airbag is fitted.

    Probably one of the limit switches is broken, if you do a search there was a thread somewhere that detailed how to strip the seats to access the switches.

    e2a, welcome to the site btw!
