Rear Isofix Fitting Guide
A few people have asked about this recently, and I fitted mine today (took about 3 minutes!) so I took a few photo's to help others:
£44.04 in total
- Isofix Bar - 8EO 813 545A
- Sleeves - 8LO 887 233 (x2)
- Torx Bolts - WHT 001 230
These are the parts:
At first I thought I would need to remove the seat bench, but by lowering the seat back down it is possible to expose the bolt holes. NOTE I have an Avant with folding rear seats, a saloon will be different and folding rear seats are much less common:
Anyway by dropping the seat you can see the bolt holes as indicated:
It is then possible to slide the Isofix bar between the seats and line it up with the holes in the floorpan, and then screw the bolts tight. I don't know the recommended torque, so just wound them as tight as my screwdriver would go!
Seat up and your done! I fitted the sleeves initially which is supposed to help aligning the seat base easier, but have taken them off as I have heard they can deform the seat, which I can quite believe.
Thats it, hope it is of use to someone!
