How to Raise a Ford Truck Seat


Ford sells three pickup trucks: the Ranger, the F-Series, and the Explorer Sport Trac. The F-Series and the Explorer Sport Trac have front seats that allow you to raise or lower the height; the Ranger does not. Some Ford trucks have power-operated seats and some have a manual-seat option. The procedure to raise the height of the seat varies depending on whether it has the power-seat option or the manual-seat option. The rear seats in Ford trucks are not height adjustable.

Raising the Seat with the Power Option

  • Sit in either front seat. Put the key in the ignition. Crank the engine or turn the key to "On" to activate the electronics.

  • Inspect the outboard seat bolster. You'll see a small knob. Grasp the knob with your fingers.

  • Pull the knob upwards. The Ford truck's seat will rise. Release the knob when the desired height is reached. If you move the seat up too high, push the knob down to lower it.

Raising the Manual Seat

  • Sit in either front seat. Inspect the side seat bolster to find the seat height lever.

  • Grasp the seat height lever. Pump it downward repeatedly to raise the seat height.

  • Pull the lever upward repeatedly to lower the seat height.
