Compatibility question.

Post by Hell Razor5543 »

This may already have been asked on the forum, but I was not able to find it. If it has, sorry for asking again, but as I don't know the answer, here goes.

Barring the obvious clones (Partner/Berlingo, 107/C1, etc.) are any of the seats from similar sized/aged vehicles compatible with their counterparts. For example (and this is what I want to know), are the seats from a Peugeot 407SW (estate) compatible with a same age C5 estate? I have seen more 407SW in the scrap yards than C5 estates, and most of the 407SW have had leather seating.

Would you believe Rover P6 front seats into original Mini?
You didn't want to know that.

You have seen (recent) cars in scrap yards! - you've seen scrap yards recently enough to remember them?

I have been to scrap yards (well, one) recently, but I do not know if, for example, the seats from a 407SW are compatible with a C5 MK1 estate. The reason I asked was if anybody had tried, and what the results were. This would be useful not only for myself, but anybody else in the same situation.
