  • Well made but not direct fit

    Rear bolts were too long so needed to put spacers between original runners and new baseplate. Also had to make original rear holes larger and drill a couple of extra rear holes in original runners.

  • quality part fitted with ease

    For my t25.
    I fitted rough first and found the base caught my cap for the water tank that is located within the wheel arch.
    I marked it.with the angle grinder trimmed off about 4 inches,easy job.
    The drilling out for the bolts was a doddle,due to the quality bracket with fixed bolts.the internal space has been transformed.
    The swivel base is a sensible addition and highly recommended improvement.

  • Excellent product

    Easy to fit. Had to drill a couple of holes to secure but was easy to configue where to drill as guide holes were already in the swivel base base.

  • Driver seat turns only 90 degrees

    I'm happy with my new Seat Swivel Plates. They were easy to fit and I like the additional height. However there are two things that could be better. The plate makes access to the battery difficult and drivers seat turns only 90 degrees because of the steering wheel.

    • Hi, I have a 1976 (Ozzy) bay. I want to fit Saab 900 or 9000 seats (which, I am told fit straight onto the standard VW runners and are OK seats so long as you're around 6ft tall). So, would there be a problem with fitting the Saab seats to the (passenger only) swivel plate?
    • Answer: If they do genuinely fit straigh onto the original runners then the only issue you should face is that the swivel base raises the seat by around 1/2 an inch

    • Hi, I'd be interested to know what modification is needed on a T25 Caravelle toolbox door. Am I right in thinking that the swivel base is bolted into a fixed position, therefore obsucring the toolbox from opening. Without the new base fitted you would slide the seat forwards to give the necessary clearance for the toolbox door to open, and with the base in a fixed position, sliding the seat forwards would just reveal the swivelling base and not the door trapped below it. Does the door therefore need to be shortened, to allow it to open pased the fixed base?
    • Answer: This base does mount in a fixed position so would require modifications, I would suggest removing the lid as part of the opening would be obscured by the swivel base.

    • I would like to fit one of these bases to my Brazilian Type2 camper, does the base slide onto the original runners and then you slide the seat onto the runners you see in the picture. I feel a picture of the underside of the base would be beneficial to others who are looking at doing this modification. Would there be any other modifications required since my camper is a Brazilian.
    • Answer: This should fit the Brazilian vans with no problem. The base does fit onto the runners on the van and then the seat slides onto the top

    • I have a 1977 Californian import microbus. It has the original seats (with headrests) - will this base fit the passenger seat and allow it to swivel ?
    • Answer: If you have no steel work behind the seat and the back can be moved forward to allow clearance as you rotate it, this unit should work without issue

    • hi iv bought a 1985 vw t25 it didt have original vw seats in it and they where welded down on a plate on the original vw runners in attempt to remove them it has damage the original vw runners now iv removed the vw runners as well and am left with just the base will these Seat Swivel Plates fit if there is no runners

      ie can the Seat Swivel Plate be bolted down and still function properly
    • Answer: Hi there you may be able to drill it and bolt it to the floor but it is designed to fit into the runners so it can be slid back or forward. Usually it has to be slid back and forward in the swivel position for it to work right .

    • Hi I have a VW T25 camper and would like to fit a swivel seat base to the passenger seat. The seat has the cooker unit behind it so I would only be looking to swivel the seat round by 90 degrees, so the seat was side ways on facing the side of the drivers seat. Is it possible to do that with this seat base or do you have to turn it a full 180 degrees to either face forwards or backwards?
    • Answer: Hi there you could turn it 90 degrees ok the only problem is it would not lock into place as it only locks into place from front to back

    • Hi. Ive got a 1985 T25 Autosleeper. The passenger seat has already got a swivel plate fitted. Can a plate be fitted to the drivers side as it looks like the handbrake would get in the way??
    • Answer: This base is ok to fit to drivers or passenger side ok
