    Hi guys, have a bit of a problem regarding the height of the motorised step fitted to the 2002 Fiat 1.9TD based Carioca - my wife is a wee bit unsteady on her feet at times and we find that the step is far too high for her to use comfortably - I have tried one of those fold up steps which s just over 8 inches high making it like a double step but she is still not happy with it as the 8" step moved when she stepped on it coming out the M/H. I then bought a double step but again it is a bit low to get in/out comfortably - my next thought is to fit adjustable feet to raise the double. I have tried to find a higher double but they all seem pretty much standard at around 38cm to 40cm. Any alternative suggestions would be much appreciated, dru.

    M/H step

    Thanks for reply 2bob - have tried the double folding plastic type - too low -spent enough money on various ideas -think I'll go for the adjustable feet extensions and try that, dru.
