Hey all,

I know this question has been thrown around a lot, and I have seen some info on other forums ...but nothing to have me 100% convinced!

Will AU front seats fit into an EF/EL?

I've read that it's simply a matter of taking the bottom rail off the AU, and swapping it with the E-series rail, and apparently everything lines up & up fits perfectly, so the whole modified seat can then just be bolted into the EF/EL ...unlike BA onwards.

Can anyone here please confirm this for sure? ...I need to make an overnight decision, lol

Cheers!!! :wink:

MARK

Front seats wont matter. With the rear, you will get the SWB/LWB issues that you would have with E series fairlane seats.

There are a couple of ways to fit the rear seats....
*modify the mounting points on the EL to accept the AU seats.
*Fit the AU seat foam/covers onto the EL frames.

I did the second option but I have been told that it is easier to modify the mounting points on the car to accept the seats.
