240 C30 R design seats into 240

Thought this may be of use to someone

Happened to be at pick and part today and they had a c30 R design there, a mate bought the seats for a ridiculously cheap price and it was almost a straight bolt in for the 240 .

We removed the c30 seat rails and the 240 rails pretty much bolted straight to the seat , the rear needed a couple washers and a longer bolt to be the right width , it keeps the 240 manual slider , that's as far as we got need to figure out what wires do what to power the recline function and I'm guessing heated seats will be able to work as well

They fit really nice they are a good width , the seat base is a great height I'm not a fan of the headrest and they sit about an inch higher then the 240 headrest but overall it looks quite neat , bloody comfy seats too ..

No idea what year model the c30 was it was missing the whole front end but apart from that looked brand new and had 70k on it .

These are the only pics I grabbed while I was there .



  • You sure those seats didn't come out of a V40? I've never seen a c30 with those seats.

    Good find though, looks awesome!

    Maybe it was , I don't know anything about newer cars it was a little hatchback , AWD thing there was no panels, badges anything left on it just the interior I assumed it was the c30

    I think you're correct mate after a quick google of both I now know what a V40 is hahaha it was a 4 door hatch so has to be the V40

  • Looks like a great swap there . Nicely done 😎

  • Presumably C30/S40/V50 seats would work as well. Interesting...thanks for sharing! :)

    No problem I was quite surprised the 240 rails just bolted on thinking I might need to get a pair myself I would like to find some different headrests that fit the seat though they just look abit odd in the 240.
