SP20 broken driver seat adjuster

As I was getting into my SP20 this morning, the front left corner of the seat base dropped halfway down while the front right corner stayed at the set height. It felt as if the left side of the base adjustment slipped or broke.

I adjusted the front of the base down and the right side went down to the level of the left side. I then tried to wind it back up again and both sides raised, but with weight on it, the left side dropped back down again.

I did a quick search and turned up nothing. Has anyone else had a problem simillar to this? Maybe someone has a spare drivers seat to sell?

Sorry for the delay in replying.

I have not changed seats, it is the original.

Also, it's definitely not the seat rail as it moves back and forth freely as required.

The problem is with the mechanical adjuster on the side. It still raise the right side of the front portion of the base, but not the left side.

Have been surviving with it at it's lowest level but removal and inspection is on the cards very soon.

Thanks for the replies.
