    No idea (sorry) but, it doesn't look like there's enough room (height) for seats in the back of astra vans? We have two at work and I was just thinking.

    Fair play if there is though.

    you can buy special designed to fit rear seats that fold into the floor. Not sure on the cost though sorry.

    The seats that are ment for the rear of the van are awful. Coupe ones, astra g will fit with a bit of welding of brackets. My mate has corsa VXR ones in his

    I have an aftermarket rear seat fitted in my VX Combo van and it's uncomfortable so I'd avoid them.

    The seat was already in the van when I bought it, apparently it was installed by the VX dealer when new. It looks like the floor had to be cut out to fit it and the seat belts are integral in the seats as I don' think the seat belt mountings are there on the Combo van.

    Your next problem is insurance, my insurers asked if they where professionally installed and where happy with verbal confirmation that they where a dealer fit, however if it's a DIY job they may refuse cover and some insurers won't cover vans with rear seats at all.

    There is a false floor, goes fron the bulk head to the rear arches.

    I've seen factroy fitted rear seats and you could never fit an adult in the back, the leg room is aweful, well unless you yourself are 4 foot.

    My friend has recently fitted the astravan rear seat conversion and its not a great fit or finish or much comfort! But, it does mean 5 adults can be seated in the van which we find very usefull!

    Also much hacking away at the floor to basicly make it back into an estate i guess.
