Scheel seats - make them work for a 2 door car


Recommended Posts


I found very good Scheel seats for sale, but the guy says they don't have a handle to pull up the seats and to use the backseats. Seems like they are from a 4 door car.

So is it possible to make some mod and to make them pull up for using the backseat?

Here is a picture:

I have seen hinged seat rails but I cant remember on which car I saw them on .Had a bear claw arrangement that locked the seat down and pivoted on the front of the rails had a rod joining the rails and this located into the bear claw.

Thank you for the answers. I will check the way with hinged rails, but i was also thinking...

I have a foldable ASS seat from this type:


But it's a little bit far away from me now and i can't see if these parts:


Are interchargable with the Scheel that i'm going to buy. The idea is to convert the non-foldable scheel seat to foldable with the parts from this ASS seat that i showed above. Do you think it will work?

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
