Panda pop 2016 height adjustable seat

Hi all,
I picked up my 2016 panda pop today. I love the panda the only thing I could do with is a height adjustable drivers seat so I can lower it down a bit. Is it possible to fit a height adjustable seat? I presume all seat fittings across the range are the same?

They should be a straight swap. I would advise to go and sit in one with a height adjustable seat first. If I remember correctly the adjustable one is the same height as the fixed when in its lowest position, so you'll only gain if you want the seat to go higher.

The height adjustable seat is in the highest setting the same height as standard seat.
It will go a far bit lower if you adjust it, it is a must have in a Panda IMHO.

I want the height adjustable parts to convert my passenger seat.
I cannot understand why Fiat do not offer it as an option.

In some countries you can order it in the lower spec cars.

Re: Panda pop 2016 height adjustable seat

I managed to get a height adjustable seat the same colour of ebay for 110 from a breakers yard, the seat was a little dirty but I managed to clean it up so that it looked brand new. Fiat wanted 1100 to fit a brand new height adjustable seat. The seat goes a lot lower than the standard height which is great for my 6ft 4inch frame .
The installation was fairly easy, I disconnected the battery to prevent setting of the seat belt pretensioners, then removed the plastic cover in the foot well and then disconnected the seat belt switch. I unbolted the seat then slid the seat out of the boot with the back seats down as that was the easiest way. Installation of the new seat was the reverse of the removal.

Re: Panda pop 2016 height adjustable seat

Got the opposite problem. I want the front of front seat higher to support rear of thighs. |Seat back already upright and if I push swab further back will not reach the wheel.
Was under the impression the adjustable would raise from standard height. Guess just have to fit spacers under the seat and longer bolts.
