These new style high back seats come with all the hardware you need to install and could not be easier to fit with all the under body mounting plates once you have removed your old seats. The seats utilise the existing second row seat belt configuration so there is no need to adapt your belts, unless you are upgrading a puma defender then new stalks and centre belt will be required.
The seats are Impact Tested at Millbrook Testing Ground under a 20G impact over a 0.9 of a second crash simulation (which is quite severe). The seats passed forward and rear impact testing without fault or distortion. The seats are supplied with full certification and test certificates. To see the seats crash testing click here.
If you are considering installing the premium second row seats into a Series or Defender with 3 MAN bench seats factory fitted, then please note that you may need to remove and install 2 MAN bench seats as the 3 man bench can restrict the fitting, if your not sure contact the sales office for advice.
The new design is approved for child seating from booster seats to 0 to 6 months and 6 months onwards. The design shape of the seat has been specifically developed to hold a child restrain in place and the seats backs are all individually adjustable with a recliner action. the seats are not isofix compatible.
The headrests are easily removable and all 3 seats are supplied with headrests.
One of the key features of these seats is the adaptations in use, for instance you can safely install just 2 outer seats only and allow access through the centre to the rear seats or simply just install one. All these seats are available as either left hand outer, centre & right hand outer. The seats are also very supportive and extremely comfortable for long journeys.
These options make the seats very versatile and offer increased leg room and good head height with the ability to fold the seat backs down flat against the base if you require extra space for loading larger items (you may need to remove the headrests depending on your front seat position).
With only 2 seats installed fitting of a centre storage box is a great idea or simply leaving a gap for rear access is great with 2 of our rear Lock & Fold seats that compliment these offering a huge improvement in rear passenger safety especially where children are seated and easy access.
PLEASE NOTE: if you are considering installing these seats into a Puma TDCi from 2007 onwards your centre seat belt and outer buckles are part of your seats. You will be required to install a centre second row belt and a pair of floor mounted buckles.
The outer inertia 3 point belts remain in place so there is no need to change these at all. Please enquire on suitable belt options.
If you have a Puma vehicle you may find when fitting, the frames do not meet the arch on the back as per the image below. If this is the case please do contact us and we can provide a solution for this.Download VCA Certificate
