Dont hold me to this but i think i remember someone saying they were slightly wider than the clio ones...
Not 100% sure though - try searching for previous threads on here cos there must have been this question before!
Evertyhing will go in (eventually!!) I put a 172 interior in mine, the back seats wernt bracketed anywhere near the same as the old ones. All i did was take the covers off the new, and put them over the old seat frames, if you take a bit of time (and care) it can be done
im going to do the same to mine, i have even got a R19 at the moment but i havnt got round to measuring the back seats yet, i will do it though, i could even try swapping them, the bottoms will be easy i guess, its the backs that might cause more grief,
if the covers and cushions and can swapped onto the clio metals backs and frames they will squeeze in the remainder, and the little bit in the door frames can easily be trimmed in leather,
i will get beack yo you when i know how i get on
by the way the guinee pig R19 is a phase 1 5 door hatch if it makes any differnce, but it did rear hatch and saloon rears are the same
my rough estimation is that the top of the seats are 1.5 inches wider, anmd a mear 0.5 wider at the bottom, mounted the the clio metal backs this should not look funny and will all be taken up in the cushions,
i sold the R19 today so i have got till tuesday when the bloke pics it up to actually try and fit the rears to see whats involved, im thinking if the hinges are the same it would be easier to trim the existing metals back on ther R19 leathers
can you give me an exact run-down on whats involved in fitting the seats,
the thing im thinking is that it wouldnt be much harder to fit any seats, i.e 200SX leathers, 300ZX leathers? they are ansolutly lovelly and relativily easily avalible, the font seats can be made to bolt, and the work involved in fitting the rears is similar to fitting the R19s
please can you give a detailed run down on whats involved in swapping the rears seats metal backs? i think i can get hold of some mint black 200SX seats
Front seats are no bother. The subframes have enough holes to take most seats
..... to the backs!!!
Firstly, removed the 172 cushions carefully and the same with the old valver ones. Placed the 172s over the frame, and trimmed the foam (just enough to sit properly). As the 172 ones have zips on, it was just a case of zipping them back up, and putting them in and bobs yer uncle!!
I know it sounds easy, but i found the hard bit was actually getting the cushions off
