Gut, aber noch nicht perfekt😀

Die Qualität der Drehkonsole ist einbauseitig absolut gut. Wie sie auf Dauer funktioniert wird man sehen. Ich habe für den Einbau noch 4 Unterlegscheiben benötigt. Es wäre schön, wenn diese dabei gewesen wären. Außerdem wäre ein Einbauvideo von einem Linkslenker Bus Fahrersitz Montage offset super hilfreich. Was wirklich wichtig ist zu wissen. Wenn jemand einen Fahrersitz mit Höhenverstellung hat, kann man den Sitz nur drehen, wenn der Sitz nach oben gestellt wurde. Des Weiteren sollte man die rechte Sitzverkleidung aus Plaste ( auf der Innenseite, dort wo die Handbremse ist) ein wenig bearbeiten um dem Entriegelungshebel der Drehkonsole Platz zu machen. Dieser verbiegt sich sonst, wenn man unbedacht den Sitz nach unten verstellt. Dann drückt diese graue Verkleidung von oben auf den Riegel. Naja zu 5 Sternen fehlt noch ein bissl.
PS: auch wenn es fast selbsterklärend ist, packt bitte eine Einbau Anleitung in Deutsch hinzu.
Ich werde die Konsole jetzt ein Weilchen testen und dann berichten.
Viele Grüße Ronny

Manufactured in France by Scopema, the RIB swivel plate for campervans gets lots of praise on the various forums. In our own experience, we have found these seat swivels to be very robust and rattle-free.

The offset feature of this particular swivel means that the pivot point is offset from the centre by a few centimetres towards the handbrake side of their seat. This means that the seat finishes up facing backwards a bit further from the door. The main advantage is that seats with armrests will spin around more easily. If you have a double seat swivel on the passenger side you should choose the non-offset version, otherwise, there won't be enough room for both seats to swivel backwards.

To rotate the seat, the engine must be turned off, vehicle put in gear and the handbrake released temporarily. Once the seat is facing the rear re-engage handbrake. For seats fitted with up/down height adjustment, you will find that you probably need to pump up the seat height to allow the seat to rotate without the grey plastic trim around the base catching on anything.

T5 only: If you have a plastic handbrake cover then you may have to remove it and replace with our fabric slip-on cover.

Notes on fitting:

Please note on some vans it appears that the plastic handbrake covering rubs on the swivel and may need to be removed.
