Howdooo

got these in today...mint....got all my reinforcement brackets in full flow...
only thing that throws me....the rear most outer singles... some are not alongside the chassis rails and i can not see what official bracket should be used.
these i know are norm in row 2 but i have a pod behind the drivers seat etc and a knackered back means the singles i can just get out if need be..
the factory floor divets are there...all in proper and correct...the front row of brackets on row 3 is perfect...alongside the chassis rails...
then the rear most ones get tricky on the outer two singles....im t32 with ind rear susp...
some are not alongside a chassis rail...
use my own reinforce brackets?
looked at the tps breakdown....
any else had similar?

many thanks if can help.

Will do now! To clarify...Its the reinforce plates thats the bizarre bit.. the top ones inside for clicking seats in are drilled, fitted in and perfick.. will do some pics... its cold outside!

Right sorry not great pics.. everything is in just nipped, not finished at all... all front brackets for this row of seats perfect.. rear lot.. bizarre.
Brackets just thrown in to try situation etsone are above the swingarm that looks reinforced already and fun to get into :)

I took these pics of the third row bench seat brackets. Where there is a double thickness of steel it looks like the factory didnt bother with the extra strengtheners.

oh right...so thats from factory fit...with the seats in already etc...assume this is the central 4 and your bench seat?
...i was just mentioning this to a pal on my other rows...where i look to be double thickness and if you look...im showing not enough "nut" :speechless:
the inner arms i really dont want to disturb...geometry to setup all again afters if touched...

these look to be the rear bizarre ones.... i do know i have a few single panel thickness that needs a strengthener...

some of my pics look to be double skinned and im going overkill?

Yes just a bench with 4 brackets in the middle.

@BognorMotors demo van has 4 single shuttle seats in the back using these outer fixings - perhaps they can advise on strengthening plates?

Our demo is a Caravelle seat

We have done the rear outer third row shuttle seat conversion. From Memory I can’t remember the strengthening setup, but I have Vw shuttles on my fleet that have this rear outer seat setup, standard as an extra. I’ll double check tomorrow for you if it helps?
