Caddy life is a 5 seater and caddy maxi life is 7 seater if I'm not mistaken so a caddy van can be converted to 5 seater, maybe they don't want to take on the work

VW manage it at the factory with the SWB, so I would have thought it could be done.

The caddy rear seats 100 percent fit in a swb as my pal has them in think there the maxi ones simple to do.

The Touran rear seat isn’t mega difficult I think for me taking it out of the donor was worst bit!

The Touran seats I think are the best ones can run 1 2 or 3 they fold forward and clip in and out in seconds. If you get the rear carpet out of donor that all goes in too, by no means am I a professional at the job but a good day at it and they look like they should be in there.

The brackets do need welding in and the floor pan does need taking up, but it’s only a shelf any way.

Don’t forget to send logbook off and change seats also tell insurance.....

Iv year a rumour that buy fitting the rear seats and altering logbook you can some how get them under a cars tax bracket which if your running a 1.6 is a massive saving how ever I really don’t know if that’s true

Cheers guys thought that might be the case I’ve been looking at Touran seats and I think I might go that way. Would prefer caddy life seats but they are harder to come by.

I’m taking one out of a Touran tommorow (been putting it off) I’ll see what size drill bit it is.
Just make sure you have a good quality drill bit to
Take spot welds and a hammer and chisel and it’s not difficult to get them out.

If you buy one already out double check it comes with everything, there’s a couple of sets on fleabay advertised as conversions and don’t come with the main part being the floor pan runners.

Get seats belts plastics those 2 Touran floor pan parts etc
And if you can grab the arm rest as well, just as a finishing touch and looks nicer when sat in back!

You also cut your Bulk head to make look nicer from back

I did mine with no guides or how toos as to be fair I didn’t think to check, but there is one I think so use that

When you say runners do you mean the floor fixing points that need to be welded/bolted where I take out the false floor. And the same sort of thing for the back end of the seat fixings.

I was wondering about the third row seats. If they fit without removing the plate that covers the rear footwell that is probably what I will try and do.
Hi did you install the 3rd row seats after? I've just got some with rails and belts. Was just wondering how easy it is to fit them.... cheers Gareth
