When I bought my van it already had a swivel on the passenger. It works great but even with the lowest setting, my wife's feet still can't touch the floor. I decided to purchase a lowering base but can't seem to get it in. The factory base has cut outs to get over the factory bolt in the rear where as the lowering base doesn't. I can fit the new base over the bolt, but can't slide it forward. Any tips?

Nevermind, you just had to loosen those boots and they were TIGHT!

My lowered bases required loosening also, front bolts too short to catch threads, so tightened fronts first then loaded the bases with a lot of spring tension cranking down those studs.

"Rear fastener studs" torque specs? Not found in OEM Service Manual, nor is there a PN on those studs. Somewhere there is a torque spec for that bolt/thread but I'm not finding the 'fastener studs' PN or torque anywhere on the internet US or UK...

Front bolt spec for "Seat to floor fasteners" is 50nm // 37ftlb...

Same issue here. I just tapped the bases in with a small sledge hammer.

I loosened them, installed the bases then put some muscle into retightening them. Torque? We don’t need no stink’n torque! It’s not a head bolt on y’r BMW R60.
