    As above, i am fed up having to move the seat forward manually to let people in the back. If i could get the mechanism i am sure i could fit it myself.

    Any advice is appreciated!

    No the seat base is different on the three and five door, you dont have the catches at the back or the hinge mech.

    I asked about this as my 3 door was the same, it was a right pain. The parts dept didnt have a clue what i was on about! I still cant understand why neither seat had easy access fitted! every other car i have ever driven had it! Your probably best looking for a seat frame in a scrappy

    Yes it should be possible. My last Ibiza had a normal tilting passenger seat, but it broke. So they replaced it under warranty with an Access Plus tilting and sliding seat. :D So the parts must be out there to do it.
