Height Adjustable Driver seat

I probably sound dumb for asking this, but does anybody know how to adjust this? I've had my 5th gen since January and I've never noticed a lever or anything that let's me adjust the height of my seat.
I read online that my model of Prelude comes standard with a height adjustable driver seat, but then again I have black leather seats, and leather wasn't an OEM option. Not one that I've heard of, anyways.

Re: Height Adjustable Driver seat

On my 01 base with cloth seats it's a large dial on the side of the seat, near the recline lever.

I have an 01 base and I've never noticed a large dial near the recline lever..

I'll take another look later.

Re: Height Adjustable Driver seat

Re: Height Adjustable Driver seat

Could be entirely missing on the canadian models with leather. That wasn't available in the US. Any Canucs with leather seats care to comment?

Re: Height Adjustable Driver seat

Yea that huge dial was there... I just never noticed before...? Silly me.

I have black leather seats and I'm in Texas... So it must've been available in the US. They don't look aftermarket... they even say "prelude" on them.

Re: Height Adjustable Driver seat

Leather was available everywhere, heated seats however were not available in the US, nor were power folding mirrors.

To the OP:
Post a picture of your seats with the "Prelude" on them.. because I don't think I have ever seen them.

Re: Height Adjustable Driver seat

Yea I have absolutely no complaints with/about them.
I certainly like the look of them better than the cloth seats.
