Seat gap how can I fix this?

We went on a trip.
There were passengers in the rear seat.
At one point the person in the back pulled on my drivers seat.

Well...
I just noticed that now there is about an inch and half gap between where the seat cushion and the back of the seat meet.

I've tried pushing and nothing budges. Anyone have this happen? Any tips how to fix it? I don't want to break anything. :(

Thanks!

I think I have a gap as well. It depends on how your seat is tilted. Play with the seat up/down contolls.

I have a big gap in my drivers seat, cause I have it adjusted all the way down, cause im tall. The passenger seat doesnt cause well, you cant adjust that part of the seat. It probably had nothing to do with a person pulling on it. Theres really nothing you can do about it, unless you adjust the seat...but really just blame it on the car being well, a cheap car.

I adjusted the crank that fixed it, I'm only 5 foot tall so I like the seat higher anyway!

I just thought the two might have been related. Glad I posted here before I messed with anything or took it in to the dealer to sound like an idiot.
