Has anyone got a Corsa B front seat out of the car at the moment? If yes, could you possibly measure the distance front to back and side to side of the mounting holes in the seat bottom please.

Cheers.

Do you mean the bolt holes in the floor pan or the subframe to seat holes. Niether are straight forward. Their are no holes in the floor pan at the front just has hooks. Also one bolt hole is raised at the back. Also the seat to subframe mounts are vertical...

I've had the seats out dozens of times but never written down the dimentions. I need the distance between the bolt holes in the seat base or where the seat bolts to the subframe.
I've got a pair of seats in mind and want to know if they are going to bolt straight in or if I'll need to fabricate a bracket to mount them on the Corsa frames.

Gonna need more than a bracket. Im sitting on a Cobra monaco seat now, and ive got a set of standard seats corsa fronts downstairs. the distance between bolts are 28.5 from front to back, and there 38cm appart form side to side. Problem is the mounting holes on the bottom of the cobra seat are 33cm front to back and 29cm sided to side.

Also like tomas said the bolt holes on the corsa subframe are vertical, so you'll need some 90 degree pieces of metal welded onto the subframe you make up

The GSI seats weren't mine, I sold them for the guy that had the Calibra leather off me.

Might have to put seats on hold, some c*nt threw a brick at my rear quarter panel last night and it don't look pretty. Gonna take it to get a quote later.

In bed at 11.15 last night and heard a noise, sounded like something hit the car. I looked out the window but didn't see anyone. Went out and checked, theres a bloody great rock laying on the drive and two fair sized dents just below the rear window, makes me think they were aiming at the glass.
If I ever find out who it was, I'm gonna take great pleasure removing their fingers with a blunt pair of pliers.
