Have a California with comfort seats? Get this ASAP!

We unfortunately weren’t aware when buying our T5 with height-adjustable comfort seats, that they can’t swivel!
After tolerating it for a while, I found these swivels, and boy does it make A TON of difference! Combined with the passenger seat swivel, your car suddenly feels like a living room inside! Even though the driver’s seat can only swivel 90 degrees due to the kitchen unit, this will still give you an extra seat around the table.
The product itself is well made, TÜV-approved and easy to install.
Kiravans is a great company with excellent customer service who were quick to answer my questions and gave me a discount after my order was slightly delayed.
One thing I do recommend, which they don’t say in the videos, is to disconnect your engine battery before installing - if you have an airbag in the seat, you need to disconnect the cable, and that may produce a warning light in the dashboard afterwards, which can only be removed by a VW mechanic (or so I am told).

All in all, great product and great company!

Does not turn with double passenger seat.

I bought this and just discovered that this seat swivel is impossible to turn if you dont have a swivel base on your passenger sofa. It says nothing about this in the description. So now I have a useless swivel on my drivers seat. I can not understand why you dont inform about this when buying it!!? And in my car a vw t6 it was necessesary to take of the handbrake cover but at least I knew that could be a problem. But it doesnt matter anyway now because the sofa is stopping the seat to turn. Dissapointed!

Great seat swivel

Good quality feeling seat swivel. Easy to fit to T6 kombi. Works fine with armrests and easy to swivel. No problem with handbrake either with no movement or adjustment required.

Description

Manufactured in France by Scopema, the RIB swivel plate for campervans gets lots of praise on the various forums. In our own experience, we have found these seat swivels to be very robust and rattle-free.

To rotate the seat, the engine must be turned off, vehicle put in gear and the handbrake released temporarily. Once the seat is facing the rear re-engage handbrake. For seats fitted with up/down height adjustment, you will find that you probably need to pump up the seat height to allow the seat to rotate without the grey plastic trim around the base catching on anything. If you have a plastic handbrake cover then you may have to remove it and replace with our fabric slip-on cover.
