Can I put a sedan rear seat in my hatch?
 
I know the latching systems are different between the two. But my question is, do they bolt up fine? I wouldnt need to lay the seats down, so I would somehow fix them in the upright position. Just need to know if it would work.... Would be both the bottom and back portions of the seat.

My ZX3 isnt the highest model Foci, and I can get some seats from a sedan which are. The fronts will drop in just fine I know that, but I dont want to just put in the fronts and have the rear different. Hence the question of if I can bolt the back seat up fine. As I said, I dont need it to move, I just want to know if I can directly bolt it in without modification.

Just remember that sedan seats do not fold forward for easy access to the back like the ZX3 seats do.

And I am pretty sure the bottom cushion is the same in the back... But I don't know if the back rests of the rear will bolt up.

I know the seats would fold forward, that wouldnt be an issue for me. Im more concerned about the back seat being able to fit, lol.

Yes, actually, they do.

Try looking up the Ford part for seats and see what they fit.

Its not that sedan seats don't fold forward. But they don't have the third lever that allows them to fold with out changing the backrest setting. And For the pass. seat, you lose the one lever fold and slide function... Not that it won't work, you just lose the convenience of the third easy access lever.

I would be putting the covers on my ZX3 frames, so I wouldnt need to worry about that, lol. I just want to be sure the front and back seats would match....

O lol. Yep you'll just have to cut a little hole in the ZX4 Covers to make that little lever I was talking about poke out. But other than the the covers for the fronts should be fine.
