    there is a company manufactures them or more expensive get genuine part from the main dealer

    if it was me, I would buy a matching pair of quality seats from a breakers yard and get a local welder/fabricator build boxes to mount swivels on. buy universal swivels and drill bolt holes to match. cheaper than a new seat and more comfy. personally would go with lexus or other 4x4 leather electric heated and adjustable seats:thumb:

    finding a matching passenger seat to match original is always a problem

    For the money they want for a single seat, and then its not even the right colour..I think you could be right . My Volvo leather seats take some beating , its a case of finding the bases to fix the swivels on ..more looking cheers Kim :Eeek:

    loads of seat bases and swivels on EBay. look at the ones being made for a T5 and either adapt or ask the seller if they do a specific one to suit. my guess is the T5 can be made to fit though as most van cab floors tend to be flat.

    have converted a few vans over the years and you quickly learn to make things fit or find a cheaper way to do things. my last van had seam welded aluminium boxes under the seats with lockable doors. perfect as twin safes and cheaper than buying the genuine article:thumb:

    The seat bases are universal ie fit both side i got one from a breakers about £45 then its up to you ingenuity which seats you fit, mine are from a vw sharon/galaxy with the spinny bit built in you have to remove the stop 0n on the turntable to get right round i welded two plates on top to adjust the width of the runners
    i do have a single drivers seat in orange and charcoal but no base or seat belt reciever
