You’d need to fit Touran or Caddy life/combi seats and obviously seatbelts. Lots of people on the forum have done the conversion. Either themselves or they’ve had someone do it for them. Have a look through some build threads to get an idea of what’s involved.

I picked up caddy life seats, brackets and belts for <£300 (plus I sold the 3rd row, so cost was even less) then there was about a days work, with a drill and mig welder. Just depends on your budget, tools and skillset dude. It's up to you whether you're bothered about plastic trims, sound deadening or carpet, you can always do these later as you've got the cash? Theres loads of touran seats floating around on ebay which is a popular option.ImageImageImageImageImageImage

I worked out it cost me about £500 to do the rear seats in my swb. Got a set of Touran seats for less than £300 with the mounting plate & plastic trims etc. Bought 3 new lap belt sets for around £25 per set. Removed the original floor extension myself & called in a favour from a work colleague to weld the mounting plate in to MOT standard. Can of spray to smarten up the plate & then sound proofing ( left over from the rear ) before carpeting which again I had spare. Although the seat coverings are shagged I cleaned for now with a view to having them retrimmed later.
