  • Does the job, you might need a handbrake kit

    Seat is easy to fit and very secure, no annoying creaks/squeeks when driving/cornering.

    You may need to trim some plastics to get a clear turn.

    The handbrake kit (you might need to order) lowers the handbrake so that you can turn the seat, it means the handle is lower (you hardly notice this) - it was slightly fiddly to install/setup but the seat does clear everything.

  • Fitted to 2008 caravelle

    Easy to fit , wiring from heated seats is long enough so no need to extend
    Need to trim all seat plastics about 1" easy to do with a sharp blade
    Handbrake bracket is welded to the seat base on the caravelle so needs cutting off and repositioning 1" lower and rewelding in place

    • How many locking positions does it have? and will it be ok with the T5 electric seats?
    • Answer: I believe this only locks in the straight poistions, I believe that the runners are different on the electric seats so these would not be suitable. Sorry
