Default V40 Front Passenger Seat Raise

The front Pax seat on my V40 is really low down - not sagging, the whole frame. I heard a while back that it's possible to raise it by adjusting it from underneath. Can it be done and does anyone know how?

Here's hoping!!

Cheers

Hi T4Owner. Thanks for the tip - sorry it's taken a while to come back. Hols and all that. Did you have to disconnect the Seat Belt Tensioning device to prevent it going off? I presume it has one - my old Ford Escort did...
Cheers
