Hello,
I may be painting my sprinter soon and so I was poking around trying to determine how the seat bases, or pedestals, are mounted in the van. I looked inside of the passenger side base and saw some bolts near the front of the base, but none at the rear. What am I missing?
Thanks
J

I believe they are welded on, as part of the body.

The front two bolts (which you found) are in the interior of the pedestal, while the four at the back are exterior. There are two mounting tabs welded to the backside of the pedestal, each one has two bolts thru it. You'll have to lift up your flooring (mines a vinyl mat, not sure what other options there are) to access them.

If you want photo's of the set up, let me know. I've got the floor up and the passengers side seat tilted forward at the moment for some paint touch up.
