Hi all!!

This may seem like a strange question, but does anyone know if a Sud seat will fit into a series 2 33? Is the seat rail spacing compatible?

Wanting to repair the seat frame of my current 33 seat and wash the upholstery but need to drive the car. I have a spare Sud drivers seat that could go in. I couldnt find any details in service manuals about mounting hole spacing etc.

I know that 16V and earlier series 1 and 2 seat mountings are apparently different...

Cheers!

It can be fit.If you check , you will notice that on the floor there are 2 sets of holes for both narrow (Sud) or wide (33) rails. You will not have any problem.

I thought it was the Sud that had two sets of bolt holes and not the 33? So if the tracks for a Sud are narrower, wouldnt this mean that a Sud seat wont fit a 33, but a 33 seat will fit a Sud?? Hrmm:confused:

I think that 33 has also 2 sets of holes. My Sprint has and it is 33 floor not a sud one. Have to check again though....

For the record, 33 16V seats fit the earlier series 1 and 2 cars, Sud seats do not fit due to narrower track mountings.

All 33 models have twin mounting holes, except the rear front seat mounts are not drilled out to allow a bolt to go through and the front mounts are drilled, but do not have a captive nut underneath. Original mounts use the innermost holes.

I cant help but feel that the 16V seats were a bit of an after thought after driving on them for a few days, they sit far too low (can be spaced up), and feel about 2/3 the size they should be (especially the back rest) and the headrest is way too hard (head injuries anyone??)..

Stock seats; Nil, Recaros 1!!:)
