GTV Spider 00

Will GTV front seats fit a Spider?

Hey all,

Im looking at putting some GTV seats into my spider because i want the tan leather seats.

Just wondering as i live in Australia the only ones i could find where from a wreckers and they where from a GTV.

My main concern is the seatbelt, the seatbelts on my spider run through a plastic guide at the top of the seat on the outer side, will the GTV have this? is it a major thing if th ebelt does not run through there?

Also will they be hard to fit? I know that the airbag light goes funny when you move the seat so is there any wires etc that involved in the process?

Cheers guys,

GTV seats do not have the guide. If you disconnect the battery (and secure the cable well away from the battery) before disturbing the seat connections there shouldn't be a problem. Do up all connections before putting earth lead back onto the battery.

I was mulling this over myself... the guide appears to be just screwed in so it's possible that the GTV seats will have a 'doo-dah'* that you can screw the plastic guide from the original seats into

*doo-dah - I was on the sauce last night and my brain hasn't recovered sufficiently to suss out the correct word

Yes they do fit, but the guide is welded onto the seat frame rather than bolted, so not retro-fit-able.

By co-inceidence I put spider seats into a gtv....
