RearSeats

Post by Frenchy » Thu Nov 02, 2017 10:14 am

After last years ITV (Spanish MOT)I took the rear seats out to make a bit more space to move a few bits of small furniture.Now it's due again I've forgotten if the seat folding plastic pulls were on the window side or the inside.Or if it matters?

Sorry can't help with your query Frenchy, but found this UK 'MOT minus seats' post that's quite a good read :D

I've passed multiple MOT's with no rear seat, as has half of the SCUK members...

Thanks for the links Gents, Spanish ITV stations are very strict about vehicles being origional spec.eg if you have a tow hitch fitted you have to get an engineers report and have it added to your log book or you fail.My last Samurai had step bars that I had to un-bolt before every test because they weren't "recorded".
