Will 3dr front seats fit in the front seats of a 5dr
#1
As above, not too bothered if they wont fit correctly at the back as the rear seats never get used.

backs will fit, fronts need adapting . . .Smile

I was fairly sure backs didn't fit?

As said, fronts will fit, there had been a guide on here at one point I think. It leaves them sitting about 20mm higher tho, which does become noticeable. I changed mine, but in the end up went back to the original seats, added supports and re-trimmed them, far better job imo.

I thought the mounting point was completely different for the front seats? On the 3 door car the outer edge of the seat subframe bolts sideways in to the sill, whereas on the 5 door they go down through the floor. This is correct for the phase 1 at least. Going to remove a 5 door interior at the weekend so I'll find our for sure!

Yeah the mount is different, you'd need to swap over the seat frames and weld on the 5 door ones.... More hassle than it's worth tbh.

backs do indeed fit but it's a different locking mechanism so you need to adapt something . . . .

ok here we go.

The front seats are different. The 5 doors bolt to the floor where as the 3 door interior bolts to the floor and side of the car. The rears have a different locking system from the 5 door. just get a 5 door interior and save youself the hassle. Also with a 3 door interior the seats will fold forwards which is pointless.

Why are you only after DTurbo seats anyway? Meridian half leathers are much nicer and theres loads of them about lol.

I used 3 door half leathers in my 5 door for years, 2 of the front bolts still line up fine, and you can 'secure' the other side with cable ties to the floor.

I can't say how well this would do in a crash, as I didn't have any - however it passed several MoT's fine.

Rears are easy, just unzip your old seats and swap over the metal backs, then they work fine with the 5 door latch Smile

Please tell me that you're joking and you're not actually stupid enough to have done that? Undecided

Cable ties have excellent tensile strength, and a couple of them at each bolt is easily enough to stand the weight of a human flying around if a crash were to happen
