S14 Rear Seats into S13 Hatch: FULL HOW TO GUIDE!

Postby splintercell » Sun Apr 25, 2010 5:49 pm

well ive searched and never found any actual guide on how to do it so ill post up my modifications.

mods please sticky...pretty sure its worthy! :biggrin:

1st: remove plastic retainers & cover the whole. i used gorilla duct tape.


2nd: you need 2 M8-1.25 X 65MM long bolts w/ washer behind head.
qty ( 2 ) 3/8 ID 2"long spacers
4 thick washers on each side of seat that add up to 5/16 spacer or try to find a spacer that size...i didnt have.
tighten into factory threaded hinge


Image


3rd: use factory seat latch and flip upside down...measure 5" up from straight indented line in metal.
use 10mm bolt w/ lock nut and tighten down latch.
seat should lock into place if done as showed.


Image

4th: push bottom section of seat as far up as you can so its even. hammer the u-shaped metal piece over and use 5/16 self drilling screw w/ washer and tighten down.

Image

5th: use the same shape self drilling bolt & washer combo and screw the metal bracket flat against seat ledge.

Image
Image

6th: you need to find some foam to put under middle of seat, because there is no support there. ENJOY your updated look!

I second that!! Please post those pics again, I probably could figure it out because of the nicely detailed post :bigthumb: but pictures are the best way to confirm I'm on the right track. Thank you!!
