Can a third seat be installed...

...in a wagon that never had one?

I would think no but have not had the chance to look at a wagon with the third seat.

Thanks.

Cheers,

Bill

There should be no problem

There should be no real problem installing the third seat. The seat consists of a backrest about 3" wide and upholstered and a seat of a similar type. These fold down into the opening in the rear. The seat faces the rear window.

I have a 1985 TD wagon with a rear seat, and it looks to me like this would be just a matter of getting the seat and backrest and perhaps some hardware.

It's not a seat for long trips: sort on like the back seat in a sports car: for children and short trips.

taxi experience

while on a german exchange trip i rember leaving one youth hostel with 7 of us piled into a mercedes wagon taxi. another guy and i decided it would be fun to sit in the rear facing seats. as our friends piled their luggage on or lap and feet we were excited. but boy were we in for a ride. i rember comming very close to loosing it because of the drivers speed and the twisty tight german roads we bounced over along the rhine riverall the while everyone screaming like it was a rollercoaster ride and the hot summer sun beating through the window on our luggge covered bodies. all of us rember that ride well but i still wish i had a waggon like that so i can one day give my kids and their friends that same experience
