Folding forward front seat
#1
Hi everyone,

I just bought a Berlingo from 2005 and I'm now converting it into a small camper. We already build the bed, but the front seat can't fold forward far enough. We are about 8-10 cm short from front seat till backdoor. Does anyone have an idea on how to fix this? We were thinking of sawing away some part of the hinge or moving the seat and the rail forward. But the first option costs some work which we are a bit insecure about and the second option is taking up leg space while we drive. Any more ideas or great tips to manage to do one of these options?

See picture in the attachements for the problem: part in the green circle bumps onto the part in red. 

Thanks! Ires

Be aware that if you cut or saw the seats or modify them in a way that reduces the rigidity of the frame then it would fail an MOT. The driver's side would definitely not fold flat normally. I don't see how you can resolve that at all without risking it being deemed unroadworthy.
