Rover 45 seats - fit Mk1 416 Tourer?

#1 Post by dickie524 » Mon Nov 16, 2015 6:01 pm

Hi folks,

Was just wondering of anyone knew whether Rover 45 seats were a straightforward fit into a Mk1 416?

There seem to be plenty of leather Rover 45 seats available and the fitting look similar off the photos and look similar to our old 45, but hs anyone tried? The rears look virtually identical...

I might be tempted to a little upgrade if I can get some good ones locally!

Thanks all, Rich

Rover 600 front seat will fit though (apparently).

Sorry to hijack thread, so will 600 seats also fit an N reg 214?

Keeping my eye out for a full interior from a 214sei, but this might be another option.

Thanks

So, was there ever an interior leather option for the 200/400 series then?

any 3/5 door interior will fit the tourer.

you're more likely to fine half black leather than any full leathers as they are :horse

Hah!

Thought so, but sounds like it's one to put on a back burner, there's nothing wrong with the interior I have in all fairness!

Cheers chaps!

Are you sure the 600 and 200/400 seats are the same?

Only the fronts, admittedly you have to widen the holes slightly (1-2mm) but they will fit.

Re: Rover 600 Seats into Rover 400 Bubble

Has anyone ever tried this ?
I have tried to fit a set of X reg 45 seats into my 99 R400 but not looking good as front bolt holes do not match up.
The mounting holes on the seat rails for the R400 bubble are vertical but the 45 seats have horizontal mounting holes on the rail. .

400/45/ZS seats do not fit the R8.

Rover 200 bubble, 25, Streetwise and ZR seats will though.

We had a 1994 414SLi with full leather interior (including the inserts on the door cards). However, it was a LHD Saudi Arabian spec model with aircon :)
