Rear seats
#1
Hi everyone, Im new to this but looking for some advice,
Does anyone know how easy it is to retro fit rear seats into a Berlingo? 
I currently have a 2011 berlingo van, enterprise,
I could really do with the extra seats, plenty for sale on line but have been informed that the floor pan may have to be modified? Anyone done this before? 
Cheers guys
Russ

Not sure of the answer over the practicalities, but you may run into issues over seat-belts, Insurance and MoTs, the latter 'expecting' only the standard seating arrangement.
I have a Multispace that has only 2 seats in the rear but extra seat belts due to the disabled conversion - MoT man not happy at all and made note that seat wasn't there, so couldn't be tested.
Certainly check with your insurers as they'll wriggle out of any claim if you haven't declared a modification.

The belt and seat mounts are already there, and the passenger footwell in the rear is covered by a steel panel that can be removed, but as OilyRag says it is a minefield legally and it is not permitted to just fit seats and use them.

The van would have to be changed on the V5 to alter the number of seats, the install inspected by a motor engineer and declared as safe to use / acceptable, then declared to insurance or the 5-0 would have a field day if they stop you with folk sitting in the back of a van on undeclared seating that you fitted yourself.
