I'm experiencing horrible hamstring pain after driving my new-to-me 2013 Golf TDI 4-door slicktop. It has the partial electric seats.
The problem is, the front of the seat is far too high, causing me to "sit" on my hamstrings. I'm tall and moderately wide at 6' and 260 lbs, so I'd prefer to have the seat much lower than it is, but the front of the seat doesn't go up/down with the back. It's as if the seat is hinged at the front. When I lower the seat it results in a rather ridiculous tilt to the seat bottom that makes the problem 10x worse. I've taken to driving with my head as close to the headliner as possible as a result, which is pretty high with the slicktop, but this creates some visibility problems and doesn't completely solve the discomfort.
In fact, when comparing it to the passenger side, it appears the front of the seat is actually higher on the driver's side seat.
Is this the way these seats work, or is something binding or not moving properly? If so, is there a likely culprit or fix documented?
