Default Operating Swivel Seat

Hi I'm here with a really dumb question.

I have factory installed swivel seats, but when I try to swivel them there is nowhere near enough room. The chair will make contact with the side of the van and can only swivel a few degrees.

It's like the whole chair needs to be slid toward the center of the van.
What am I doing wrong ?

Thanks !

yeah that explains it.. i had to slide the seat so far forward that its impossible to sit in it and swivel it at the same time.

Thats pretty unfortunate the that official sprinter seats are such a pita to swivel and the hack ones i see on youtube are so luxuriously easy

Hi. Try moving the seat forward with your hands -- not sitting in it. Then rotate. It's second nature after a few times.
