OK - a good solution for rear bolts:)


M10 8.8 countersunk bolts with 1.25 thread do not exist.


So, I tapped the welded nut that is M10 1.25 to M10 1.5 (normal) thread, and then the easily available M10 8.8 countersunk bolt with 1.5 thread fits perfectly. OK - the thread is weaker on the nut as its been tapped, but then just put washer/nyloc nut on the bolt after its passed through the existing nut and its stronger than what existed before.


Blog will have pics and details later today. Just waiting for paint to dry on the seat adjustment handle

I fitted my swivel without sliding rails (couldn't find any in time). It was a surprisingly easy job. The seat is about 30mm higher and you have to open the door to turn it around. Used 8 x m8 bolts to attach to seat and 4 x m8 + 2 x m10 bolts to fit plate to seat box. The metal drilled surprisingly easy even with my cheap drill bits. I might fit sliding rails at a later date if I find any but I am quite happy with the way it is.

I used the fasp swivel and had no problems. It fit spot on first time. Took about three hours which included touching up the paint.

Well done but last night I made up a dummy frame same size as the R&R bed I am waiting on for delivery so as I can get ahead building the furniture. My R&R bed is in old imperial dims 40inches wide x 72 inches long to enable me to make the furniture a maximum of 400mm wide.


I found last night due to the rear door post near side I have to move the bed slightly forward and it would clash with the passenger seat if I did not have it on sliding rails. I need the 6 foot length hope you are lucky and don't.

Hello.

I'm currently converting my combi to a day van with the plan of going full camper conversion after next year.
Can anyone tell me where I can get a seat swivel that will work with the centre console I've tried in vain to order the one from Zoom but after waiting 4 weeks for a reply to me email despite several reminders I've given up with him (darn brexit).
Thanks Guys and girls

You want a fasp t4 1997 on swivel from jennings seats. Cost about £90. The fitting bolts are extra. You will need to drill some bolt holes to make it fit.

Hello,

Stopping in.. I have definitely found some great information in these forums.. why do they all seem so dead? have people moved on to somewhere else? or just not a large following yet?

I am in the U.S. I have a 2017 NV200 SV and am scouring looking for options for swivel seats. All I am finding is UK solutions..

Does anyone know compatibility? Resources? I am aware that there are legal standards here regarding airbags (read in another thread).

I came across this today... anyone know anything about them?

https://motorhomes.en.alibaba.com/product/60659459893-805043855/DIY_swivel_seats_for_nv200_Cab.html

I asked if they knew if it would fit the U.S. Nissan NV200... hopefully they reply with the answers that my magical/wishful thinking wants.. and that they are true.

Hello dave22360,
I was in contact with Zooom this summer and had no problems with replies. Maybe your emails moved to their spam folder?
If you haven't found a workaround try "mail at zooom.biz" and replace ' at ' with @


Hello fluffyowl0
the zooom swivel seats were designed for seats with rails, so they're not included. I read that they found a way for NV200 vans without rails. Ask them with upper mail adress for a solution/offer.

Since Thomas (member Zooom) sold his company it could be that he doesn't read postings here anymore.

Yes, the centre console could be still used. But I removed it a) to rotate my DIY swivel seat (see below) and b) I love the new space for moving from front to back - and reverse - and for storing bags or other stuff.


Hello Frankbot,
I guess the basic research of NV200 modifications were discussed and solved some years ago so with Google newbies will find/copy/modify them. Some problems have never been solved (and reported)... :(

The Chinese swivel seat looks interersting but I don't believe that they are 'more' legal than T4 plates - which were at least crash tested and certicicates could be found in www. I'd not expect that the chinese ones are tested for anything.


Hello all,
I optimized the FASP T4 swivel seats so that driver seat is just a few mm higher and passenger seat is about 14mm. Main trick was to dismantle seat base and put lower part of the plate under/in the seat base. Drivers seat base is also modified at bottom to minimize height.
1st test https://youtu.be/hKq14JNO4MQ , finally finished https://youtu.be/DprjLVT1U98

Its unfortunate that the Base of the newer models is different. Instead of using the box sort of base (that attached seat to floor) there are now four legs.

Has anyone looked into using the swivels are us, for the Larger NV's that have the four feet as a base for the nv200?

Hi everyone,

I'm about to fit a passenger side swivel seat to my NV200 however i have a fixed seat and am struggling to find sliding rails for a passenger seat.

Does anybody know if i could remove the sliders from a driver's seat and fix to the passenger seat?

Thanks!
