760 & 940 seat compatibility.

Post by ursan » Tue Nov 12, 2019 11:58 am

I know everyone says that the seats are interchangeable, but are they?

I'm trying to buy a much-needed set of seats for my 94 945.

Corbeau.com has seat brackets for "83-88 Volvo 760".

However, according to their support, the bolt spacing doesn't match mine.

Was there a different bolt spacing in the first generation 760?

Is there a difference between manual and electric?

I don't believe my seats have airbags.

What could the discrepancy be? I removed my driver's seat last night and measured center to center bolt holes:

My measurements are:
Front CTC = 19"
Rear CTC = 19"
DOOR CTC = 18 3/4"
CONSOLE CTC = 18 3/4"

Their measurements are:
Front CTC 19"
Rear CTC 18 5/8"
Door CTC 20 7/16"
Console Side CTC 18 5/16"

What's with that 20 7/16"

I'm running 1998 S90 seats in my 1988 760. I had to swap seat belts to complete the swap. The 1998 S90 seats have no airbags. What I can say is that the photos of D566 and D567 for 83-88 brackets will not fit a 88 760. 88 760 and 98 S90 seat rails are flat where they attach to the floor. I have removed seats from a 92 740 and they mount to the floor in the same manner.

This is what I found for power seat slide rails:
9174599 (9166004)(3525173) Inner RH 82-98 700/900
9174637 (9160231)(9156005)(3525174)(9448249) Outer LH 88-98 700/900
9174638 (9160232)(9156006)(3525177) Inner LH 82-98 700/900
9174639 (9156007)(3525178) Inner RH 82-98 700/900

Outer LH has different slide rails dependent on controls. But as you can see the seat slide rail mountings in the floor are apparently the same from 1982 760 to 1998 S90/V90.
