Fitting New Seats in 110 CSW

Please forgive the seemingly stupid question. I am still new to Landy ownership and trying to figure it out.

I just bought a 60/40 bench to replace the three high back seats in the middle row. The problem is that the seat brackets don't line up with the new seat frames. It seems obvious that I should just relocate the seat brackets but the brackets I need appear to be different than the brackets currently in the Landy. Some of the brackets have two sides - one for the outer seat and one for the middle seat. I obviously don't need this.

What's the best way of fitting new seats into my Landy? I've tried some quick google searches, but came back with nothing.

Thanks!

Hi and welcome to the forums.

Are the seats you bought from a Puma by chance?..

if it the older style 60/40 then there are 3 brackets. the 60 and 40 share a double bracket in the middle. The outer brackets are singles. the parts catalog clearly illustrate it.

Not sure how to tell if these seats were from a Puma.

Overlander is spot on. There are 3 brackets with the middle bracket sharing the 60 and 40. In the end, it was more expensive to purchase 3 brackets than it was to find different seats (3 individual seats) that will fit with the existing brackets and seat belts. So I just purchased the other seats and will sell the 60/40.

Good morning....

Puma seats will have built in head rest in all 3 seats. It's a popular aftermarket installation,if you can find the seats second hand. They require extra brackets etc.

In which case, these are not Puma seats. Thanks for the info, though.
