Mercedes-Benz is one of the world's leading manufacturers of high-end luxury vehicles. Features such as power seats, leather and heated seats are not additional options in a Mercedes-Benz, they come standard in every Mercedes-Benz vehicle. Your Mercedes-Benz comes with power seats that allow you to set the driver's seat to your favorite position so that each time you enter your vehicle, your seat is positioned exactly as you want it. You can program up to two seat settings in your driver's seat in a Mercedes-Benz vehicle.

Step 1

Get into your Mercedes-Benz, close the door and turn on your vehicle.

Step 2

Locate the seat adjustment knobs on the driver's seat of your Mercedes-Benz. These are typically located on the left-hand side of driver's seat, easily reachable by reaching your hand down beside the seat of your car between the seat and the door. Depending on the year and model of your Mercedes, your seat controls might be located on the front of your seat.

Step 3

Adjust your seat to your favorite setting using the seat control buttons. You can adjust the height of your seat, the position of your seat-back and your distance from the steering wheel and pedals.

Step 4

Locate the seat number settings on your driver's door. This is a grouping of three buttons. The top button says "Set" and the two bottom buttons are labeled "One" and "Two."

Step 5

Press the "Set" button and then push and hold down either the "One" or "Two" button, depending on whether or not you are the primary driver of the vehicle. Usually the primary driver's seat is set on the first setting, as the car automatically resets itself to the "One" setting each time the car is started. Your spouse, or secondary driver, gets the second setting. Of course, it's your vehicle and you're free to set your seat positions as you please.
