swap seats
#1
Thumbs Down 
hi, i have searched but cannot find any info on changing drivers/front seats. I would like to try and find better seats, are there any other vehicles that have seats that can fit with a little work or straight swaps ?
I am sure i read something on here before but cannot find it.
Failing that its off to scrap car centre, sllight problem with that is i am in France so the French passenger seat will be my uk car drivers side.......there is no pre tensioner on passenger side on my van, 2003 HDi, so can i retro fit one to a french passenger seat ?
hope this isnt too confusing lol...i'm confused writing it and i know what i mean......
regards
hugh.

just use your slider uk base and put French top of the seat on it.
search the net 306 seats fit with some handy fingers.

Any seat you find comfy can be made to fit with just making new brackets, relatively simple work.

Due to spinal injury I fitted a new Rover CityRover seat to my MK2 van and it has been an absolute boon for me.
Actually the Cityrover may have been a ropey car in many ways ( I owned one ) but the seats were really good quality.

The benefit of fitting a seat and making your own brackets is that you can adjust seat height and rake to suit your body.

I also used the opportunity to ensure the seat was moved inwards ( towards the passenger seat ) such that the steering wheel was central to the drivers body and not offset like a standard vehicle.

Somewhere on the Forum is a before and after photograph.

Edit : I actually fitted a pair of seats
