How tall are you just out of curiosity? I'm 5'6 and my seat is so low to the ground as it can be. I'm about 10-12 inches away from the steering wheel so I sit pretty up-close. (Watching open wheel racing and every other racing sport they all seem to sit so up close so just figured it's the right way to be)Am I crazy or did Ford mount the driver's seat too far right in recaro equipped cars? I think the steering wheel is not quite centered over the driver's seat and the clutch and dead pedal are difficult to reach due to the bolsters blocking easy access. I literally can't walk if I drive for an hour because my left knee is strained from the unnatural angle it is put in to operate the clutch. Does anyone else have this issue? Is anyone aware of a way to remount the seat further to the left? I don't care whether seat can be adjusted with the door shut or not as long as I don't have to bend my knee sideways to use the clutch.
I just wanted to let you know that I figured out my Air Bag light issue two days ago. After doing a lot of reading without any real good direction, today I was going to disconnect the air bags in the seats and install a bypass resistor. However I first reinstalled the passenger recaro seat and the airbag light went out (keep in mind I bought a set of the factory GT350 comfort seats). So I started checking and changing sensors on the seats and it turned out to be the pressure pad in the seat bottom of the passenger seat. I actually didn’t think this was the issue, because it triggered the light when there was a light weight on it, but in the end I changed the complete pressure pad over from the Recaro and the light is off and has stayed off. I have only driven my car about 20 miles but I have restarted it multiple times and so far no issues.JoeC and SVT...
I also tried to swap GT leather/power seats into my GT350 and the airbag light is on. Has anyone found any more information about this?
Also, SVT, which of the two connectors you added was +12 and which was ground?
. Where did you pull power and ground from? On the connector you have 2 12volt power on each side is that correc?No issues...No airbag light, and the seat belt reminder (SBR) also functioned.

I only had to add the power + and ground - to get my seat, fore-aft, tilt, and height adjuster motors to function. All other pin outs were left untouched..The remaining (original) bodyside wires are for the airbag, SBR and seat track position sensor connection.
Of course seat heat and A/C will not function and is in the second seat side connector.
