2017 Dispatch Swivel Sears

HI,
I have a 2017 Citroen Dispatch which we use as a day van. It currently has a fixed drivers seat and a fixed double passenger seat. I would like to have two single front swivel seats. I have spoken to many conversion companies but few seem to know much about Citroen vehicles or offer a full conversion which we are not seeking. I have already removed the bulkhead, fitted windows all around and completed insulation and carpeting. Does anyone have any advice or suggestions for the change in seating arrangements please? Thanks.

There are various universal swivels available but they do tend to be expensive. 
You would  need to drill them to match your bases.
You would also need to replace the base on the passenger side.
This is the type fitted in my van and on standard bases and work quite well:-

These look better value:-

I notice that there are a lot of cheap ones on ebay now that are advertised for boats.  They look more suitable for a bar stool to me but might be possible to modify.

Edit...
Be aware of clearance for the hand brake lever and headroom under the overhead shelf.  Mine fouls the hand brake which needs to be released to swivel then re-applied.  you may have one with a dropping lever which avoids this problem.

That 2nd link from OAT i put them in my last Convoy and they worked well. Got them from Jennings who sell as a pair

Only think is they can be thinner than your seat runners but you can add a couple of steel bars across for the runners to sit on. I ended up making my own bases also as there was little storage under the original ones.

Thanks Oat and Casper. Some interesting options there. I don't suppose you know of any company which could complete this work for me? If not, I guess I will have to attempt it myself? Thanks.

Sorry no. We have the older version if the vans and i dont know even what the runners look like on your van. I will presume flat and the same height making it just a case of unbolt seat from base and put the swivel plate between. As said you are adding height to your seat also. If to tall or one taller runner height than the other then you are looking at buying box section steel and making your own base. You could look at people carriers that came with seats with swivel seats already in place. Some models of the Ford Galaxy being one. At least that way you are just making new mount holes in the floor. May need a plate under the van for load spreading in case of an accident but they can me bought in ebay for little money.


EDIT:    See what i just found

Re: 2017 Dispatch Swivel Sears

I heard rumour that the bolt holes are the same between the Mk1 and Mk2 models which would mean you could try to source some from any of the 806/Synergie/Ulysee and 807/C8 that had swivels

There's a previous thread discussing them here: https://dispatchexpertscudo.org.uk/foru … php?id=961
