Very well made and fits perfectlyThis swivel plate is extremely well made and is very solid. It came will all the fitting and only took 20mins to fit.
Now gives us another very useful seat in the back of our day van, once the passenger seat is easily swivelled
Swivel plate for 1999 t4Very good quality swivel plate. Fitted onto base perfectly. I had to weld the seat i had to the plate as it was a jaguar seat. Works very well and dosen't squeak like cheaper versions.
Sturdy seatbase but does not fit without modificationThe Good: It is a very sturdy seat base with a hole in the center that enables the heated seat wiring to pass through. Shipping was extremely fast. The increase in seat height or absence of rearward locking feature does not bother me.
The Bad: There is no tracking information available for international orders. There were no installation instructions and the German document that was included seemed to be a certificate of some sort.
The Ugly: It did not fit and JK did not seem to be interested in resolving it. I have a 2002 EuroVan and we double checked that the right part was ordered and shipped. The mounting holes to the original seat base were off (17mm in the front and 20mm in the rear) thus new holes had to be drilled. Also the mounting holes for the rails were off in the transverse direction with 3mm. It took a considerable effort to make it fit and persons without the necessary workshop and tools will find it impossible.
Overall I give the product 4 stars as I am eventually satisfied with its performance.
Good solid swivelThis is a good solid swivel base which is fairly easy to fit although there are no instructions, as previously mentioned it adds a good inch to the overall height of the seat so may be a problem for taller people especially if being used on the drivers side as your knees come close to the steering wheel as well as the head room issue
As mentioned the swivel will not work on the drivers side with a fixed double bench seat but if a swivel is fitted to the passenger side it isnt a problem
Also there is no locking position for the seat when it is turned through 180*
