    Hi folks,

    Thinking of fitting a swivel and only need it on passenger side.

    Will it make that side seat higher than the other?

    Thanks for any tips,

    Cheers

    Andy

    It did in my Iveco.

    The swivel thingy fitted between the seat bottom and the seat base.

    Yes it will - although you can get lowered seat base boxes but I don't know how much that would cost or if it is available for your Fiat.

    get a local welder to reduce the height of the seat base, or look out for one already done as there used to be a company make them. only problem is if your battery is located under the seat you either need to relocate it or raise the cab floor height so the passengers legs reach the floor

    Agreed, but my experience of ducato's means 3/4", me being 6ft, can be the difference of seeing the road ahead or staring at the sun visor.

    cant decide if they have a low windscreen or ridiculously high seats :RollEyes:

    This information is from a supplier:

    As a point of reference, our seat swivel bases raise the seat by 30mm (1⅛ inches approx.).
