Front seat base identification.

Recommended Posts

I am looking at fitting some different seats in my Lupo 3L, but I need help in confirming which seat runners will fit.

I think they are the same as mk3 Golf runners, and I am sure I have read that somewhere, but before I go off and find some mk3 seats as donors, I thought I would ask here first.

Take a look and see what you think. TIA.

They look the same as 6N Polo (94-99) and Mk2 Golf, Mk3 Golf, some Seat Ibiza and probably early Arosa

mk2 is narrower than mk3.

Thanks. I think I've narrowed it down to to Golf mk3, 6N2 Polo. The seat backs are the same as a Golf mk2, but the runners are wider, as rich says.

It's interesting that the bases are steel, and the backs are alloy, weighing about 12.5kg each.

I'm on the hunt for a mk3, so I can butcher its seat bases.

I ended up getting an old pair of really scabby Caddy seats, which are the same as the Golf mk3. They fit straight in.
