W114 seats fit a w116??
« on: 18 June 2019, 07:12 PM »
Hello, does anyone know if the rear seat from W114 will fit in a W116? I understand the W116 is a wider car but seat doesn't appear to be much smaller..

I highly doubt it. When I bought my W116, it had a blue back seat from a W123 installed in it (in a tan interior). It was too narrow and didn't bolt up the same. A W114's back seat is probably going to have studs that mount in the trunk, where the fuel tank would be on a W116. The lower slab is also likely to be completely different and won't fit.

How was the fitment of the w123 seat, was it modded to fit?
I need to replace my rear seats and trying to weigh up my options.

It was awful. It was much too narrow and there was no way of attaching it. It was just a loose fit that moved and teetered around. The previous owner just stuck whatever he could find in the car.
