    Look at cars like Peugeot 205, Citroen Saxo and AX. Check the sizes and how the seat runners fasten to the seats.

    When we had our C15 I replaced the seats with those from an old renault 5, the car was old but with few miles and the seats were like new. They needed a bit of a modification to get them to fit the C15 runners but it was worth it.

        No idea what the seats are like, but this one looks like its had a fire at the rear, so seats might be OK.

            Hi There,
            A bit late in the day I'm afraid, but I looked at a C15 ages ago before settling on mine. It had very plush front seats, which I asked the seller about, the previous owner had fitted them and he recalled they were from a 'big renault' Laguna he thought!!!
            This is all so anecdotal as to be of no help at all Incidentally if you're tall be aware that you may lose a bit of legroom, the seats were one of the reasons I didn't pursue that particular van.
            All the best in your seat quest!

              I googled a bit and found http://www.the2cvshop.co.uk/acatalog/C15_Seats.html (expensive) and http://www.1stchoice.co.uk/cars/citroen/c-15-champ (not sure what a Champ is) . I should think that exploring for C15 spares from breakers would be a good way forward.

              I suspect that if you fit non standard seats - you should consider informing your insurance company.

                  Hi there, I looked at replacement C15 seats and came up against the same sizing problems. I then went to a campervan upholstery firm who told me they could re-cover the seats and also weld any broken framework. Does this help you?

                    A good suggestion.

                    Have you any idea of costs?

                    I presume that they will also replace the foam?
