I need to find some of these or at least get a picture of what they look like. Mine seem to have disappeared or broken and I have no idea what I'm searching for. I adjusted the seat when I first bought it years ago and it's so long ago I have no clue as to what was even under them!

I have tried a few of the usual parts suppliers and these are NLA and they aren't normally fitted to the passenger side so I can't use those or even look at those to work out what can be used instead.

Any ideas? Car is mk1 vitesse convertible.

My Herald 1200 had solid rectangular rubber blocks with the hole off centre so that you could turn the block four ways and have four different heights.

These are the original items but I imagine most will be pretty knackered now after 50 years. Mine are still ok but as they only adjust the rear of the seat, and so change the angle, Ive put quite thick plastic spacers under each of the seat rail mounting points. Theres quite a bit of head room, in the saloon anyway, and I much prefer the higher driving position as on longer runs with a standard steering wheel I can support my arms on my legs.....

These are the things you are looking for I think.

I found them on
by typing 'seat' in their search box.

I was going to order some but instead fixed a couple of wooden blocks with cable ties on the passenger seat for my Mrs. I don't need them.

as a well known robot would say 'Glad to be of service'

Yes! That's them. I've found mine. They had slid down and swung up out of the way so they were invisible unless you stuck your head right into the seat base!

I've ordered some more anyway as without them the seat is awful so if they're NLA in a bunch of catalogues it seems sensible to stock pile a set to last another 50 years
