We didn't really run into any problems fitting the seat, a few of the bolts needed adjusting and hammering to allow a smoother action when securing/aligning in place but apart from that, the seat turns and secures into position well now. The heated seat switch need unplugging and plugging back in before and after every move as it can get in the way of the swivelling.

My wife is 5ft 9" and when sitting in the seat, which is raised a bit more than normal, says she can feel her hair brushing the roof lining a little. She's not crouched by any stretch of the imagination.

It certainly now gives us a place where the dog can sleep (secured to the seatbelt!) of a night onstead of joining us on our 3/4 bed!!

Hope this helps.

Hi, thanks for that,
No problem for my wife at 5'4 but I think that the lack of headroom may be a problem for me when I'm the passenger or when I'm carrying others, I think it's back to the drawing board on this one, I'm wondering if a single seat would be any lower, I'll check it out,

Can anyone offer any 'time experienced' reviews of the swivel base, I need one for a Mk7 but I'm interested in any reviews Mk7 or 8 - not so much the fitting. I know everything takes longer than anticipated.

Naturally I can spend c£250 on all manner of things on the van but I do think a swivel seat would make the SWB day/weekend van far more usable. I saw a video on youtube and the 'turning' process looked a bit more involved than I imagine and while I appreciate its not going to be press a button I just wanted an idea of if 'you' do use it or its 'sort of used as its a PITA to turn'

Any wisdom gratefully received
