I am banging my head against a wall.

My 2009 AS Symbol has a problem with the passenger side swivel seat which does not lock into place.

The swivel plate has a manufacturer (ISRI) and part number so I contacted ISRI who referred me on to a company called www.swivel-seats.com.

I contacted SwivelSeats who in turn contacted ISRI who said they couldn't take an order from them and it would have to be done through the original converter.

I tried AutoSleepers who weren't interested because it is a 2009 model and they consider it to be a part of the base vehicle which they don't deal with.

I really don't know where to turn. The faulty part is a small plastic piece that locks into a slot. I am thinking I may try to 3D print a replacement.

Any suggestions?

May be able to help with 3d printing when they’ve returned from holiday.
I can do the 3D printing. It's designing the part that will be a bit tricky as the part has snapped in two and the seat will need to be taken apart. I may also need to dismantle the drivers side to find the same part which is still intact so I can copy it.

Have you got a photo of the part. I can do the CAD work fo you if that helps.
Thanks for the offer but I can do it in Fusion 360 if need be. The problem is that the part has self-destructed, so will be difficult to copy. However, as I said, the drivers side is still OK so I can copy that if necessary.

I was hoping to avoid having to dismantle it (them). I was hoping I could buy a spare part or even a whole new swivel plate.

Oh well, I like a challenge :(

That’s what I use. Fusion 360. It’s an awesome CAD program 👍
Have fun.
Yes, took me a bit to get my head round it at first but I did a 3 day course last year which has made it a lot easier.

I'll report how I get on but I'm reluctant to start any dismantling until after our trip to New Forest in a fortnight.

Thanks for that. They are fairly local to me. I'll give them a ring tomorrow

I rang them just now. Same answer - it will have to be dealt with by AutoSleeper.

I am pleased to report that this is now fixed

I dismantled the seat/swivel assembly to remove the damaged component. It was worn and had a corner broken off like this

There was a part number printed on it so I tried a Google search which came up trumps with an eBay seller in Lithuania who was selling it.

It arrived today and is now fitted and working perfectly. It was a pig to reassemble because there was a springy piece of metal that had to go in the correct place (not easy).

After a considerable amount of swearing it is done and works perfectly.

Isn't the internet wonderful?

How much not including a £1.00 for the swear box EVERY TIME 🙄
