Tourneo rear seat configuration

Postby 203sheeps » Wed Nov 22, 2017 3:12 pm

Currently looking at a second hand Ford Tourneo Custom circa 2014 to replace our aged VW T4. One of the ones I have my eye on, has the first row of rear seats in conference style, i.e. facing backwards.

Does anyone know if it's just a matter of unclipping them and turning them round, or are the fixings in the floor in a different place?

(the seller does not know, as he's never thought to do it apparently!)

I have put the kirivan's swivel on my single front passenger seat and this works ok by the way.
i get no rattle noise from it but you do have to open the front passenger door to swivel it

As far as I'm aware you can't turn the back seats around in a Tourneo, although I've never tried it in mine. You can in the new 2018 model but not the pre facelift ones.

I might give it a try though when I get home this weekend.

Ford do a special order Taxi spec Tourneo, which might explain the one you've seen.

Steve, if you cut off 5/10mm from the seat runner you can swivel the seat without opening the door Ive just done it and it is fine, my seat rattles when nobody in it but when the 2 of us its good

I don't think they can be turned round, I seem to remember I tried to turn the single 2nd row seat, it won't 'click' in, also, the seat controls, tilt, rake and armrests, that are on the ends of the two outer seats would then be in the center, and there is not enough room.
