Driver side seat issue

Has anyone had issue with the driver side seat? Mine seems to deflate. Every time I get in I have the pump it up.

Mine sits in the lowest position (wish it would go about 2 inches lower really) so I do not have that issue, however I have read complaints that when you get in and out you hit the handle and it lowers the seat.

I have this problem every day in my 2013 JKUR with side air bags. Dealer says they won't do anything about it. Does anyone else have this issue? Has anyone gotten a dealership to fix it?

Your probably grazing the height adjustment lever as your getting out of the Jeep.

You might be right. I have been careful to avoid the lever while climbing out but I didn't realize that I might be cranking the lever down each time I hop in and land down on the seat. I am not overweight so I didn't think Jeep would approve a design that changes seat height each time you hop into the seat. I'll test the theory this week...

I had the same issue with my 2010 and now with the 2013 too. I have found that when ever I fold the seat forward to allow someone to get into the back of the jeep, the height of the seat resets.

No issues with my '11 or '12. Stays where I put it.

My 2012 has the side airbags and does it as well. Is that the common thread?

My 2013 JKR doesn't have the side airbags, and I have the issue. I've got grab handles so I can get in and out without bumping the lever, but occasionally I still do bump it, so every few weeks I have to pump the seat back up the last inch or so.

You can orient the lever a notch down if its bothering you. Just remove it and grind off the plastic notch. Then just put it back on at a lower level so your not hitting it when you get out of the Jeep. I just got to the point that I'll crank the seat up one click once a week, usually at the same time that I move the Jeep clock forward a minute. I embrace the little quirks
