    New t4 owner.

    Hello, Iím new to the forum and vans in general. Iíve just bought my first van itís a 2002 2.5 tdi t4. Wanted one for years now Iíve finally got one! Can anyone recommend the best way to fit some quick release seats in the back as my van only has two seats up front. I would ideally like to be able to put a couple more in the back to take a few mates places. Cheers 👍

    Hi Ya Nerve, Welcome, someone who know will be along soon. I believe I have heard talk of fitting mushroom bolts which enable the addition and removal of seats 🤙🏽🤙🏽

    The grey single you see in the picture could be free to a good home with four bolts but you'd need a lap belt . I've had that for the double in the photo.

    This is my opinion...

    The best and easiest way to do it is to look out for a twin rear seat complete with the correct mushroom bolts. You my be lucky to already have the holes through your van floor and chassis rails (thatís what I call them) But you need the correct seatbelt mounting point on the drivers side. The passenger side is a lap belt.



    I canít find a pick off the mushroom bolts

    BUT, AND THIS IS A BIG BUT...

    depending on what T4 you have, you may not have the seatbelt mounting points, and Iím not sure the panel vans had anything remotely like it. One way to tell is to check the vin number. If it starts VW1 its a commercial vehicle. If itís VW2 itís a leisure vehicle.

    And,

    If your van hasnít had seats in the back before, DVLA may let you change the logbook. Theyíre being really awkward at the moment.

    Ignore the pic of the front twin seat. Tried to delete but it ainít happening

    That's basically whats in mine Snowrider, I didn't want to start chopping the ply lining to fit the 3 point belt so fitted a lap belt to the drivers side.

    That the one. Yours looks a lot more comfy than mine was.
