Driver Seat Position

I have noticed that when driving, my foot is slightly under the right side of the brake pedal with my foot on the gas pedal and my foot almost gets caught by the brake pedal when I move my foot from the gas to brake pedal. I also see that the drivers seat center is about one inch left of the steering well center, which may cause this problem. Has anyone noticed this? Is there sufficient bolt hole clearance to move the drivers seat to the right with the mount bolts loosened?

I elongated the holes to the side on the pedistal so I could turn the seat to the right more. I also moved the forward hole on the throttle to the right so the throttle and the brake had more seperation for my big foot.

I have the same problem with steering wheel is not centered to the seat. There is a steel support plate, that is welded under the floor, which is not wide enough to move the seat over. There is no easy way to move the seat over.

As far as the throttle pedal it depends whether bolts to the floor or is attached to the firewall with adjustable pedals (Kongsburg is the manufacturer)?. If it bolts to the floor you could move it over.

I had to replace my throttle pedal, so now it bolts to the floor now.

This is common to all Alpines and has been discussed endlessly. Search old threads for what others have done.
