Volvo 960 seats in a Hijet ;) with seat-heating!

Post by JohanNL on Wed Apr 23, 2014 9:27 pm

I drove a few Volvo's by now and from the last 960 I had, I took out the whole interior.
Today I started fitting the passenger seat to the engine hood on the passenger side.
It fits so f*cking nice!! The only thing that didn't fit was the sliding frame from the seat itself, but that would make it too high as well.
So now I can not slide the seats to front or back, but I made sure they are in a good position.
Or, "they".. The only one I did by now is the passenger-seat.

Took me a few hours to find out how and where to put it, taking the frame off, that kind of stuff..

But, enough with the bla-bla.. You want pics:






And, as you can see.. 2 connectors underneath the seat..
One is for the check-light to see if you're wearing the seatbelt, and the other is for the SEAT-HEATING!!! Very Happy

Soon I will fix the other seat as well, maybe this week already.. Smile

BTW, the pics are made in the "spare-part-van"..
After I see everything fits it goes to the white Hijet Smile

Those look comfy seats, and the bonus apart from heating is you gain some storage pockets. sweet.

Absolutely comfortable indeed.
In these seats I drove 800 km's in one trip, slept a few hours sitting upright, and then drove 600km, without getting out of them, and when I did get out, I wanted to driving again.. Very Happy
Something which for sure is 200 % the opposite of what those standard Hijet seats feel like.. Razz

*Went to Budapest then, where probably the Hijet will also go in August Smile

Me and a friend drove 2000 miles in 4 days on the original seats and found them comfortable enough We also went to Hungary, bottom end of lake Balaton.

Really? Damn, that's a lot!
But nope, for me they are not, I drove 150 km's yesterday and I was glad to get out.
Maybe it's what I'm used to..
Happy that they fit Smile

Those seats seem a pretty good fit, like the idea of a toasty bum in the winter Smile

Standard seats are a pain in the arse( back, shoulders, etc) they look good, most seats have too deep a base to be useful, i sold my originals to a lady who had bought one fitted with Jag seats, you could hardly get in!

Yep, the base is like the same as the originals I think. I hope that today I can fit it on the drivers side.. Can't wait to sit in them again Smile

End result Smile
Don't mind the strap around the seat, that's off by now.
Plus the thing that holds the seatbelt is bolted to the seat now, just like the one on the passenger-side.
But it was dark when I finished the whole thing, so better pics will come tomorrow..

Hope I will get the seat-heating to work soon.
But still don't know which wire is plus, and which one is minus Razz

Very nice mate! As for plus and minus, I'm not 100% sure but I don't think it matters with a heating element Smile

I'd be more worried that the steering wheel is on the wrong side..... Wink

The steering wheel is perfect there haha Very Happy

About the plus and minus..
In the seats there are also thermostats, maybe for those it might be a problem.
But, I asked on the Volvo-forum, so now it's a matter of waiting, and fixing the switches and the wiring in the meantime.

Which will be the next project I think.. "Re-designing" the dashboard a bit.
I have a spare-van, so I will take out the dash from the one looking the worst, and from that I will start cutting and drilling, to later put it back with a nicer look, and for sure space for my double-din radio and some extra switches for audio, lights, luxury..
But that will be a whole new topic.. Wink

Looking forward to seeing the dash, it will need to be changed quite dramatically to fit the double din stereo in as we can't even fit a normal single din stereo in as standard unless you go for certain mechless units.
