The not-so-definitive guide to Sienna seats

I found a used Sienna recliner that I'm hoping to use as a 3rd seat in my Sprinter campervan. I saw that U Joint is selling brackets for these still, but they look lower than the old Base-Fab brackets. Are there any options for higher placement like the Base-Fab? Anyone selling any old bracket?

Great info in here.

I've run 4 strips of flanged L-track from front to rear of my EB E350. I'm going to lay new rug and make cut-out for the L-track. I used the rug I removed to experiment with mixed results. I have a few ideas how to improve the finished product using my experimental rug and a cardboard template but mistakes could be expensive.

Does anybody have any tips for getting an accurate fit when cutting the rug?

I think I may have made a mistake and bought the wrong kind of Sienna Seat. A guy has been selling them like they're easy to adapt, etc... but looking at his bases, I can't figure it out.


I also noticed someone selling the same type of seat on the sportsmobile forum claiming they fit the u-joint bases with slight modification, but I can't find any example of it and the seller hasn't responded so I'm wondering if anyone else knows how to mount these seats...otherwise maybe i'm reselling my seat and looking for something else or fabbing a custom mount for these.

yes you bought the wrong row. You want the 2nd row seats, kinda looks like you bought the front row (Driver passenger seat). The 2nd row seats have a clip-in style mount, so very easy to convert, the front seats have the usual frame which is a PITA to convert.

These are the second row seats. I think the fronst would have a track and wouldn't have the integrated seat belt I just learned that they are in a model that has "unremovable" second row seats because the seat itself incorporates an airbag.

What about just a corner bracket like this?
