Golf R Seat Conversion

Post by Saulus Maximus » Tue Jul 20, 2021 11:46 pm

Hi all

I’m adding Golf R seats to a MK4 Caddy. I’m using the seat belt buckles from the golf R. Does anyone know if an electrician can just wire them in?

Cheers!

Yes, it's just a simple switch, that what it is.

Hiya mate, thanks for the reply.

I’m completely new to the Caddy scene so please forgive me lol… the connector plugs on the Golf R seat buckles are different to those on the caddy seats.

My electrician is on holiday, but is it as simple as him just wiring it all up, or is there a specific connector / part I need to get please?

Cheers bud 😎

Connectors are different. But you can re-use your Caddy seat connectors or buy a new ones.

What sort of connectors are you all using for seat swaps? Is there specific vehicle plugs/sockets or just any old (amp rated) plugs

Thanks 😊

What did you pay for the Golf R seats out of interest? Looking at this for me too.
