    Fitting Vectra B GSI seats

    Will VectraB GSI seats fit into a 5door astra ok ?

    from what iv read so far they might need 2 get brackets/frames welded 2 get them to fit right ?

    for the fronts: if you get the adaptor bars with them, then they'll just bolt in.

    for the rears: you'll need to cut the backrest brackets off and weld them into the right place. the rear seat cushion is a 60:40 split as well so that'll need work too.

    its been covered a few times though, have a little search

    That gen for the rear seats is somewhat wrong

    For the rear back rest all you need to do is swap over the complete hinge brackets off the astra and bolt them to the vectra parts - after which they will bolt straight in.. no cutting/welding is necessary.

    For the bum rest, due to the wireframe/bracket set up used on hatches/coupes, the easiest thing is to get the two parts of the vectra's 60/40 covers stitched together and fitted to the astra cushion




    /\/\ as fitted in mine, using the above method..no cutting, no welding, no bullshit

    if it's the ones in Hull then it says "consists of front seats with electric height adjustment and all subframes/mounting rails/bolts etc."

    but the only person who can tell you for certain is the seller

    £180 still seems a good price - ive bought 2 complete sets in the past couple of years - £295 & £205 - at that time they were about half the going rate.

    If you want them, have the dosh then i say go for it.

    just ensure that the adaptor rails are included - get some pics from seller first.

    heres what they look like if ur unsure



    (for the eage eyed viewers that rail is on the wrong side - pic shows its for drivers side) anyway forget that for the sake of this pic lol

    I stand corrected

    I was going by what I'd read elsewhere - thankfully they were/are a straight fit in the estate when I had them, only difference is the seat pans but that's just a case of swapping cushions
