1999 V70 Third Seat Swap

Post by abscate » Tue Sep 11, 2018 11:33 am

Ive found someone in need of the rearmost seat and wanted to know if anyone has done the swap for a standard V70 rear 'trunk' floor.

It looks like its:

Seat bottom - just lifts out. I assume the non-seat bottom is same size

Seat Back - looks like rear trim needs to be removed to free seat

Seat belt latches - bolted to frame - maybe new bolts and sealer

Seat belt hip anchors - bolt accessible


Seat belt tethers- disappear into trim between C pillar and rear - ugh.

Hardware all looks to be 16mm Hex (M10 size?)

What I have not yet figured out is how to get the seat back out - the forward part that pivots up to form the rear facing seat.

..and for the Pedantic - is it really the third rear set, the third, rear seat, or the second rear seat?

I thought I posted a how to on this, but if I didn't I'm sure there was one done a few years ago for possibly an 850 wagon by one of our regulars. V70 is the same. If you are still stuck, I will check on my return to Calgary if I still have that info on my pc for you.

Speaking of third seats, there is a seemingly complete set up in one of the P80 V70s at Harry's in Hazelton in a medium tan. It looked to be in very good condition.
