Hi all, I have a 2018 SLWB and I’m looking to change the driver and passenger seats to a more supportive and comfortable pair, Are there any that would be an easy swap? Cheers in advance

you could have problems with rego and insurance if you do not get seats that comply with standards matching the seats already fitted you may need engineering certificate you need make enquires before going ahead

Thanks for the reply, getting appropriate engineering certification is not a problem, my question is what seats are compatible? Sadly the Toyota seats are truly appalling, it’s a shame they don’t give an upgrade option when you buy the vehicle

ok why not take seats to upholsterer and have them rebuild them to suit you

Is there a front end problem causing unusually high tyre wear in 2020 hi ace. My tyres needs replacing at 30000km. Have had all services including tyre rotation. The wear was reported at 20000km. I got 60000km from new 2015 model and 90000km from 2009. I heard there are issues with current model.

I have a 1997 zl hiace the rear seats were removed and a wood floor screwed in, I'd like too fit a bench seat in the back but cannot find one from the exact model and year, what other seat would bolt straight into the original mounting points? TIA

disappointed
disappointed  

problem with fitting other seats is you could run into rego check problems and you may need engineering certificate, you will find it very hard to find a seat that fits straight

I have a 1995 hi ace manual, I’ve had everything done on this van that was recommended to make it as reliable as possible, my mechanic has just informed me that it’s using a lot of oil! 1 litre for approximately 3.000 Kim’s. it appears to run perfectly, no smoke, no drips or any obvious oil..
I’m extremely concerned as about to undertake a long solo journey and at 73 and female feeling a bit concerned..
Any thoughts please

disappointed

needs rebuild would not be risking a long journey while there is no signs of smoke yet that could change on a very long journey sorry but i would be thinking of giving your baby up and going for something more reliable, and comfortable such as a later model Toyota van good luck
