fitting a table in my car

9 posts in this topic

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?

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.
