I have a seven seat Granvia which I use as my works van and weekend vehicle. As I have taken the rear bench seat out to gain extra rear room it only leaves me with four seats.
Is it possible to buy a double rear seat from the eight seater and fit it in place of the single seat thus giving me five seats?
Any advise will be much appreciated thank you.
I have just noticed an answer of sorts to your question on page 2 of this how do I? section.If you scroll down you will see a heading that says change seating arrangement from 7 to 8 seater,hope you get sorted.
no joy with Wellhouse I am afraid, I phoned but the Lady I spoke to said it isn't really something they would know about. I did mention the website and how they had taken out 130 sets of seats but she said I might be better trying somebody else!
As the owner of a Q-spec, my *guess* is that to replace the middle-row of two seats in the 7-seater to get three seats (with safety belts), you'd have to install both the twin-seat and the single seat from the middle-row of the 8-seater. But without knowledge of the width of the G-spec seats and critically what floor tracks are in the G-spec, that really is only a guess! The Q-spec 7-seater uses four tracks for the middle row of seats; how many tracks are there in the G-spec 8-seater and what is the spacing between them?
i say matched because i dont think the left hand q spec single seat will fit next to the double, except perhaps if the armrest were removed
this is from an ebay ad with pics of the seats
I can't remember if the rails are different or not (don't think they are, the new van ones where full of sticky sweets), but I swapped mine over anyway because I cut them all the same length because I don't have the rear most seat installed. This means I could fit an mdf floor in the back section , like a boot.
The floor pan has what look like centre punched marks where both configurations fit.
There's one place where a ballpein hammer is needed to knock down the ridge profile for the rail foot.
There's no captive nuts for the rail to move to, so I used big spreader plates under the floor when bolting down.
There's a couple of fixings that can't be accessed due to a box section by the rear axle, but I didn't feel this compromised the strength of the rail.
If I did I would have welded new tabs on the rail somewhere accessible.
You'll also need the carpet from the 8 seater.
I also refitted the whole 7 seater interior into my old 8 seater van.
