front seats

Hi all, just purchased a 56 plate nv200. Was wondering if i got hold of a pair of drivers seat adjustable rails, if i could fit them to the passenger seat ?
If so i may change the passenger seat to the folding type as well so i can fit longer materials in the back.
Any help would be much apreceated.
Yours Dave.

Not as easy as that, search "swivel" on here for people fitting swivel plates (I know you are not) -but fitting the rails is a bit of a mare apparently

The rails on pax seat are fixed and not easy to remove. So not simply a case to unbolt (apparently).


In the next week or two I will be fitting 3rd party rails and a swivel plate, but will be doing so at a friends who is a hands-on engineer, so will have welding gear, plasma cutter and every size engineering nut n bolt. I'll take pics and blog.


But some people have pics on here which may help, but as yet, not taken the seat out yet!

Thanks for the info, hope all goes well.
Will follow how you go on.
Are the standard rails welded to the base frame ?

Don't know - see above, not taken the seat out yet. Search this forum for swivel and you will see other people have detailed the process more - the answer is probably there if its anywhere. I believe, from memory, its bolted but inaccessible.

Hi
Just taken the pax seat out.
There are 4x 15mm bolts which hold the seat and an electric wire that connects to the seat but on mine at least isn't plugged in(!!!). I do have pax airbag so clearly that deploys regardless.
Under the seat there are 4 corner rails each held with 2x 10mm bolts. 3 each side come off with a 10mm ratchet spanner, 1 is a pain, 2 are easy.
These just undo.
The 2 "git" bolts which I've heard can't be reached, can, but you need a 10mm socket and extension bar, and "push" between the seat base and the plastic side trim. Feel with fingers, its v v tight but works. All 4 unbolt and the seat is then bare.
**IT APPEARS** as if the mounting holes are in the seat base for the rails same as drivers side. And there are enough holes in the seat frame to match up with most rails, if not easiliy drilled.
It also appears as if the swivel plate fitment will be easier than expected (famous last words lol!)
Watch this space....
