  1. Which seat bolts

    I’m about to switch out a double swivel seat for a single captain seat. Could anyone tell me which bolts I would need to secure the seat to a Kiravans passenger safe swivel base? Also any advise on the unused floor bolts left by the double base would be uselful. Thanks

  3. Kiravans/Rib T5 Drivers Seat Swivel Issue

    I'm just fitting a Kiravans/Rib drivers seat swivel into my T5. The problem is that the release catch on the swivel badly fouls with the seat trim (even before you actually try is use the lever). My seat is the comfort version, so has height adjustment but that doesn't help either. Basically...

  6. Single seat swivel which slides for T5

    Anyone out there aware of a seat swivel for a single passenger seat (for a T5) which also slides the seat forward when the seat is rotated (so towards the back of the van). I think there's such a thing for the double seat but haven't seen one for a single.

  13. Getting rid of swivel double passenger seat.

    General T5 Chat
    Hello, The swivel seat just doesn't get used i.e. I don't bother swiveling it ever, more hassle than its worth and obviously puts the passengers higher than the driver and there's not much space for 3 6ft+ tall work men, so could really do with getting the space (height) back with taking the...
