Hi, is it possible to remove the swivel element of the drivers seat in order to lower the seat. I'm a shorty and find if move the seat forward enough to use the pedels then my leg bashes off the plastic under the steering wheel. Thanks

It is possible to replace the seat base but you then lose the ability to swivel the drivers chair. For the peugeot version I think you might find a base on ebay for about £160.

Hi Crisp,

Sorry to jump in on this one but I am also vertically challenged and experience the same shin rubbing. If I buy the lower frame shown on your link do you know if I can keep the swivel option

To answer the original poster's question, yes it should be possible to remove the swivel and re-attach the seat directly to the base, as the swivel is usually an add-on when the base vehicle is converted to a motorhome.  Our driver's seat has no swivel but the base is height adjustable both fore and aft using two levers on the left hand side, is yours not? 

I do have a lower height seat box in my garage somewhere.

We bought it for the passenger seat on our Pollensa, which has a swivel but no height adjustment. I didn't like sitting high up as I'm fairly tall and the overhanging bulkhead and top of the windscreen obscured the view. It worked fine as it goes however I then found that my knees were always bent due to the lower seat height so I ended up using a foam pad to boost it up again which defeated the whole point of the exercise. 

So I removed it and refitted the original box and now just slouch if I want to enjoy the view!

Whilst it was fitted, it didn't affect the swivel function, however this would depend on your particular vehicle as it might impinge on the bulkhead or whatever is located behind the driver's seat. 

 I have the dimensions and pictures of the box somewhere if it's of interest.

The problem with a lower base plus a swivel will be the handbrake lever

I spoke to the dealer today and they said if they remove the swivel it should lower the seat by an inch. Although they can't do this immdiately. But I think I might book it in for this and try how it goes.
