Tombstone seats

Postby Pogo » Sat, 05 Aug 2017 7:55 +0000

Hi all, I got some tombstone style seats recently from Anton in Sligo, and had a look at fitting them today. I've got a 96 1.6, with seats with separate headrests, and noticed that the seatbelt buckle mount is attached to the side of each seat base, with a bar on which they slide, fixed behind the seat. My problem is that there is nowhere to attach this on the tombstone seats.
I was thinking about stripping the original seat base, which has a damaged cover, and fitting the cover and back off the tombstone seats onto this. Has anyone got any other ideas for this?

Lift up the carpet near the rear of the driveshaft tunnel, do you have mounting points for seats belt receiver stalks there? If so, I might have a couple in the shed.

Hi Steve, thanks for responding.
I had a look, and the rear mounting for the bar which allows the sliding seatbelt clip, would appear to be in the same position as the fixed seatbelt stalk fixing point you mentioned. If you did have a couple of these I'd happily take them off your hands. Whereabouts in the country are you?
Thanks

I think you can remove them sliders and bolt stalk directly to floor.I have stalks if you need them.
