I have been searching the regular forums for the last few days and can't find the answer I am looking for.
Question: Can you retrofit ISOFIX to an Audi A4 B8 8K Avant?
What I know is that it can easily be done on the B6 and B7, I read a fair few posts on this and how it is simply attach a bracket and two bolts, job done. I read on one of the posts that with the B8, they have introduced smart looking mounting points with plastic trim brackets and cut outs in the seat to make it look nice (Because that is exactly what the consumer wants...). I found a new rear seat on ebay with the same trim, but including the cut-out locations and plastic trim brackets, I asked the seller if this comes with the ISO brackets, but the seller said currently not as they thought the ISOFIX bracket was welded to the chassis. This makes no sense to me, as it will limit Audi in there aftermarket sales and it would mean that if there is a defect in the ISOFIX itself, then there is no way of changing it.
So to elaborate on my previous question:
1. Can I do it?
2. If so, do I need to change the rear seat, or just buy the bracket and fixings (Even if it is from Audi)
3. If I need to change the seat, should the ISOFIX come with it, or have Audi really welded the ISOFIX to the chassis?
I am sure there are other people wondering the same thing.
Many thanks in advance
