In many Saab 9-3 Sport Sedan versions the passenger seat cannot be raised. Thanks to Meinhard Fidde for his description how to raise the passenger seat with steel U-profiles and to raise the chair with 22 mm. 

In total 4 raiser need to be intalled, they exist of 4 steel profiles of 22x22x2 mm. Also you need 10 bolts of M8x13 mm.. (Length incl. head 18 mm)

To fix the chair you need  M8x13 mm bolts. Mount the bolts the same way as shown in the pictures. 
The holes in the u profile (9 mm) are to big but you need this as a tolerance when mounting the profiles. The profiles will be placed between the chair and the original frame.

First remove all the bolts from the chair. Then place the raisers on the original frame (do not fasten all the bolts yet), after that place the chair on top of the raisers. First fasten the bolts of the chair, then fasten the bolts to the original frame. 
After you have fastend all the bolts the chair has been raised.
