I've got the fronts in and they look really good. Very happy with them.
Having a mk4 estate, I was led to believe that the rear seats would go in as a direct fit... First piece I picked up from the pile was a seatbase, and almost immediately I have proved the "direct-fit" theory WRONG!
Here you can see the differences...
and here's a comparison shot of the two types of spring release clips...
Basically, the problem is that the spring release clips for the base are wider on the Astra than on the Vectra seatbase, so what do I do?
Is it possible to get a spring clip with a narrower centre section and longer "pins"?
can anyone compare the P/N's on EPC for the spring clip on the Astra G estate and the Vectra B (GSi if it makes any difference)?!
I'm now going to go back out and try and fit the seat backs now, hopefully I won't have a problem with those!
Any help with this greaty appreciated, I'm not sure if anyone has the rear seats fitted in an estate, so hopefully I'll be a first... Of course, if I'm not the first, then could the first person please tell me how to fit them!
