seat base

    Hello. I just bought a front passenger seat with the seat base from a newer t4 (2002 model I think) and I want to change it with my old seat (96 t4 model). The problem is that the base for the newer seat base was fastened with nuts in the front on to studs sticking up, and hexagonal bolt screws...

    Hello there! Newbies here. At the moment we are converting our very first 1996 Volkswagen T4 1.9 D into a camper! But now we have a question. The Van we bought has already got 2 good seats in it. Only they are not cockpit seats, and ofcourse we prefer armrests! :p When we feel on the side of...

    New to these forums so hopefully this is in the right place. I have sacrificed the single captains seats in my caravelle and only using the bench/bed to allow room in the back for bikes and stuff. Is it possible to use one of the swivels to convert the front passenger seat.
