Electric armrest also installable too.. centre console out. The mounting stรบds are already there under the carpet foam.. a bit of wiring to a switch and bolt your box to the top..

As will says if it's electric it I'll be height.. look at the forward facing part of the plastic trim on the door side of the seat sort of below that upper switch .. facing the pedals..
Yes, I noticed the pre-instalation. Now I have to find one that matches my interior or modify a standard leather one. To the list it goes (a huge list already ๐Ÿ˜…). Good thing I love working on cars haha

When I'm done with the restoration, no doubt, I'll be diong the Blink Code Reader, thanks for the advise. I'm very familiar with OBD2, but interestingly enough I haven't messed with OBD1 (yet). Thanks for the heads up.

Folders within folders.

Start with a list of stuff to do to the front bumper, which may, or may not, contain a sub list, then work your way backwards from there...

The drivers seat should have electric height adjustment. Look for the switch on the front edge of the seat base panel.
Well I found the hole and cable, but no switch. I managed to buy one 2nd hand, mounted and it works almost ok. I say almost because if the seat is at its lowest position it won't go up if you are on it, it pushes the left side but the right just gets stuck. After it pases that point it works fine. Thanks for letting me know they all are height adjustable.
I'll fix that issues with the seat when I'm done with the dashboard.
That sounds an awful lot like the behaviour of my driver's seat - I found the seat base had cracked and was twisting when the motor was trying to lift it. You might want to check if yours has cracked too - I took mine out and welded it up where it had cracked and it's been fine since (except that for most of that time, the car has been SORNd and I haven't driven it.... :oops: )

Well... Confirmed, subframe on the driver seat is broken, so... To the list it goes ๐Ÿ˜‰
And yes, I have a list of lists that's in a folder within another folder.

Current planing:
Next stop is to reassemble the dashboard and a broken support. Then also fix all supports for the central glovebox, as the 3 of them are gone.
After that, change the gas strut on the other glovebox.
Then put the new exhaust, fix gear selector and address a minor engine oil leak. After that, new filters and fluids (coolant, LHM, engine oil, air filter, gas filter...)
Then fix the driver seat, fix the passenger seat scratch on the cloth, then fix the steering wheel lever adjuster (lost the rubber handle).
And nearly forgot about glue the plastic part where the reverse light are, its a bit warped due the outer plastic not being attached to the main plastic frame. Also find the 13th window thing for opening it when opening the boot.
AC fan has dead electronics, so put a new one in, then check if the air conditioner works or if it needs gas (very likely) and or if the compressor is dead (also likely).
Also clean the front headlights (yellow plastics) and then paint and fix the minor scratches on the bodywork.
And some of the most important: change timing belt!
All four electric windows need to be lubed and check (the go terribly bad, especially the drivers' one.
And a tiny bit of plastic trim on the roof at the passenger side is broken. The door panel also got 2 plastic parts that doesn't want to be together, glue that as well.

PD: Yes, due to the gearbox selector being terrible, I did almost no driving test, so after all this, certainly more things will pop up.
