Thank you, these are the same spacers as I've bought, so will experiment when fitting.

thanks again

I popped a spacer in between the floor and the runners recently, as we were having trouble getting the seat all the way forward when my other half was driving (about 5ft tall). The adjustment bar was rubbing on the floor cross member as the seat moved further forward, and it gave it just enough play to get full movement.

With my Tillets and the lowered floor in my 420R SV I found could not get the seat to go fully forward, especially when I needed space behind the seat to adjust the crotch straps.  Push the seat back as far as can get it and then put a wooden block about 25mm thick underneath the  adjustment arm to force it up in the air.  Then push down firmly on the bar and bend it downwards, pull up to remove the wooden block and should now be able to move seat forward and the arm will slide below the crossmember.  Just be careful of your fingers when move set forwards.

Thanks Bryan and Colin, the seat is this week's job, and I'm sure after everyone's help, it will be a walk in the park. Maybe not, but certainly easier
