MG TD TF 1500 - 52 MGTD - height issues
|Wondering if you folks have any suggestions. I bought a 52 MGTD and am a small female having "shorty" issues. I realize I probably need to block the seats so I can properly see over the windscreen, but not sure what I can do to reach the clutch. Can't move seat any further forward. Suggestions?|
|Pedal extensions were available for these cars so I would think some supplier has them.|
They would be fairly simple to make if you have access to a workshop.

|My wife (5'2") put's a pillow behind her when she drives the MGB. She's never driven the TF or the now gone TD.|
Peddle extenders are offered from MOSS,,,
part # 406-760
Also from Abingdon Spares,,part # 13 062
Abingdon would probably be a better source,
If these are not long enough, use them as a guide to make longer ones.
You probably know that the steering wheel allows for fore and aft adjustment. Maybe part of the solution in combination with pedal extensions.

|CS - Glad to hear that there is another lady out there driving a TD. Our TD is my wife's car of choice whenever she goes anywhere - I have to lock the car in the garage when there is salt on the road so she doesn't take it out even then. She too, is short 5'3" I have put pedal extensions on the pedals and she still drives with a pillow behind her back. Cheers - Dave|

|My wife also uses a pillow for her TD. She is also 5'3" and I have added blocks to the pedals. My TF has better seat adjustment apparently and blocks are not needed in that car.|
No salt issues here, but watch out for Wombats after dark!
|Matthew, you forgot to mention the "drop bears". Scare the heck out of short folk....|
