Seat Information

Some handy seat info you might need to know.

Modification Details




Left and Right Hand Seats

The seats can only go on a particular side of the car because of the seatbelt guides.
Under the belt guide is a metal frame that is spot welded to the side of the seat.

Passenger Recliner Seat?

Many people have voiced and interest in having an adjustable passenger seat and bought up the idea of fitting a driver side seat from another smart of opposite drive.
ie: Left hand drive driver seat in the passenger side of a right hand drive vehicle.

The diagrams below will show you that although this is possible, it is not a straight swap.
The dimensions shown are the distances between bolt centres or slider end.

Seats And The Runners

Passenger side seat.




The distance between the hole centres from side to side is 41cm.

RHD AND LHD Roadster

Conclusion

As you can see, the driver seat on the Fortwo always has the longer runners
and the passenger side on the Fortwo always has the shorter subframe.
If you try to fit a driver side seat to the passenger side, you will be able
to bolt the back down but the sliders will be too long to bolt at the front.

On the Roadster, the swap is straight forward as both sliders are the same.
Although there isn't as much room to adjust the seats backwards in a roadster.
