i have a focus and do a lot of driving for my work, and do a lot of working and eating in it. i can't remember the last time anyone went in it with me so i've got a question.

is there any way i can remove the front passenger seat and replace it with a permanent table or something else i can use to make my car a bit more comfortable when i'm up and about?

Have something to contribute?

Hi Rob

I'm really not sure but as someone who is desperately hoping someone will reply to my post I thought I'd at least say hello.

Removing the passenger seat will AT LEAST cause a problem in that the pre-tensioner will also be removed therefore there will always be a fault logged on the airbag control module.

I might be wrong but I got the impression he wants to use it whilst driving. For obvious reasons one on the back of a seats gonna be difficult to use whilst driving.

the whole passenger seat folds forward as in totaly flat so you have a table instead of passenger seat then folds back up to make a seat. plus using while driving is a) stupid B) probaly gonna kill yourself and some other poor inocent c) stupid again.

Done it


Not for a table, but for a false floor, to take a wheelchair at level load height with the door sill.

True, modern cars have seat belt pre-tentioners and my last two have had airbags built in to the seats. This CAN be over come by having a 'terminator' built up with the correct resistance values to fool the car in to thinking the airbags and pre-tentioner were still plugged in.

I had one made up for my new fiesta two weeks ago, a car adaptions specialist made the terminator for me, to then be plugged in where the seat unplugs from the loom, it cost me 135, as did my megane convertible 3 years ago.

Prior to that I had a Rover 200's and a 25 which only had the pretentioner to worry about, and that was easy cos the seat belt buckle unbolted from the chair so could stay plugged in under the fabricated floor.
