Yah, I agree, I found these guys online: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=km2TqN9eVLA

The big question is: Does a swivel for the passenger seat work on the driver's seat IF the brake was gone?

Has anybody out there who has installed a passenger seat swivel ever taken a look at the driver seat out of curiosity to see if the swivel, if not for the hand brake, would have worked on the driver's seat?

the passenger side seat adaptor is now available and has a lead time of 14 days.
For the Driver Side there is now also a solution available but so far only in combination with a sportscraft seat. The Swivel Set for the driver side includes the swivel adapter with fittings for a Sportscraft Seat. The Seat will then swivel above the hand break.


In a previous mail to me they stated that the crash certificate for the passenger swivel will be available mid year from Sportscraft. So they are using Sportscraft Adapters which should be available here in the US as well.

here the link to their site:

Hallo ,
die Beifahrerseite hat eine Lieferzeit von 14 Tagen.
Für die Fahrerseite gibt es jetzt eine Lösung, jedoch nur in Verbindung mit einem Sportscraft Sitz.
Das Drehset für die Fahrerseite beinhaltet eine Drehkonsole mit Adaptierung für einen Sportscraft Sitz. Dieser dreht dann über den Handbremshebel.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen

what's a "sportscraft seat"? googling i find that sportscraft makes swivels, but i find no seats. i'd really really love to be able to swivel the driver seat, and might be willing to replace the seat to do so.

morey -- did you ever learn any more about swiveling the power seats? are there adapters that work? (i'm imagining that such an adapter would need a center hole large enough to accomodate any connectors on the power seat harnesses.)

Nope, nothing new. Haven't order a swivel yet as I'm still waiting on my van.

thanks. after searching some more it seems like the swivelsrus product might do it: http://swivelsrus.com/transit.html they certainly have a large enough hole for the cables.

This swivel worked for me, includes all nuts, bolts and instructions. I installed in ~3 hours with a trip to the hardware store for the correct torx driver. It provides room for wires to my 10way electric seat.

Santa says she'll buy me this for X-mas.

Looking at the seat it almost looks like the seat couldn't turn 180° to the rear as it would hit the door ?????

Also what about the seat belt strap--------it's attached to the seat and would be stretched out across the seat.

Are these 2 things not a problem ??????

I installed the swivel from SwivelsRus. Easy install. When turning the seat you slide it back and forth where needed. This is easy to do with the manual seat. The seatbelt is long enough to place it behind the seatback so it's not in the way.
