    Trying to find out exactly what is required for the raised boot floor, my car never had one, and I have the opportunity to get the folding floor, but I'm assuming you need some kind of rails or brackets to sit it on?

    Anyone out there got one that could advise? Or perhaps any pics?

    Does your rear panel in the boot (the one that covers the lock latch) have a little ledge in the middle about halfway up ?

    I imagine they all do, to save cost, but without it your false floor won't be supported at the opening.

    So I've done a bit more research and it looks like (although the part numbers are different) the Mk3 Toledo and Altea XL share the exact same raised boot floor.

    Wondering if this is common knowledge?

    Got all the bits and fitted them tonight, found a used raised floor on ebay, and ordered the rest of the bits from Dave at Sere.

    Cheers for the help chaps!

    BTW, for anyone else retrofitting this in the future, don't do it in the dark/failing light, I nearly mounted the rails in the wrong holes (ones with plastic plugs in) which nearly led me to taking a stanley knife to the trim in order to accomodate the middle lugs, just in the nick of time I noticed the pre-pressed cut outs just below!

    Hi Pal

    old thread i know, but can i ask if you went ahead and purchased an Alteta or Toledo part?

    Only asking as the the part is as rare as the proverbial.

    Cheers

    Hi mate,

    The floor i got was an old Mk3 Toledo part on ebay, the part number on it didn't match the one Dave at Sere quoted me though, so wondered if they changed it when the XL came out?

    There was an Altea XL floor on ebay at the same time and it looked identical.
