Had the van a few days now and thinking it could be a keeper A:

one little niggle i have got is the rear double seat seems to have lost its headrests (03 plate ex AA), are they the same as the front ones or are they specific to the rear bench?

Not 100% sure but think they are are the same.

But if you take one off the front seat, and try it in the back that might help decide :D

Hi,

I see my name has been taken in vain again, Cheers PaxoT:

All the T4 headrests are fitted with the same pins! There are however two sizes of headrests, The ones normally fitted to "vans" and the ones normally fitted to "caravelles"

All that being said there is no hard and fast rule! and later in the production run, they seem to have fitted whatever they had to hand.

If you measure the circumferance of the headrest between the pins I will see what I have "in stock"

Cheers Trev.

been out and measured up

the distance between the pins is 135mm

[]<------135mm-------->[]

as for the size of the actual headrest it doesn't really matter as long as they are the same size ;)

I think the size of headrest depends largely on whether the van had a full height bulkhead or not, the "thinner" ones fitting with the bulkhead in place.
( I've been wrong before, mind, and arrived at this theory largely without the help of a grown up).
