Hi,
I understand that the seats on the V-class were updated to lighter seats during around year 2000.
How can I tell if my seats are the lighter version?

Weight them .. [;)]

The tell tale sign is the type of mounting the seat has into the floor.

Round fitting => older heavier seats

Narrow long slot fitting => newer lighter seats

I've had cars with both and the difference is noticable when trying to haul them out of the vehicle !

The pre Seats weigh in at nearly 40KG the newer seats weigh just 28kg. Quite a bit lighter and a lot easier to move about. [:)]

I must have the earlier seats, yesterday I lifted out a couple and moved the others around to accomodate a disabled buddy, this morning I find I am also disabled [:0]
