I have an 03 XC70 (tan interior) and I'd like to install the third row rear-facing seat for my older kids to sit in. Where's the best place to get one for a good price? Just ebay?<p>What is a fair price?<p>What fits my car? 01-04 or 01-07 V70 and XC70 seats?<p>Thanks in advance!<br>JB

Re: Where can I pick up a 3rd row seat? (JB_Pgh)

There is a fellow on ebay who sells them, but his price is like $1100. Good luck. I've been looking for one in graphite. I'll let you know if I find a tan one cheap.

...if you want to drive (4 hours from you IIRC???), or ship me the stock stuff it's replacing, I could part with the 3rd row on my 2001 V70. ZIP is 18015

Don't forget that you are supposed to install an interior latch in the rear door so that your rear facing passengers can open their own door.<p>See steps 36-54<p><A HREF="http://vccs.volvocars.se/accessories/ii/vccsMawebTransform.asp?type=html&uid=7a76304d-3005-4061-9152-3ce392a0cfba&culturecode=en-GB" TARGET="_blank">http://vccs.volvocars.se/acces...en-GB</A>

ArthruC, it looks like 6+ hours, I'm in Erie PA now (I may not have updated my profile since I moved). I'll PM you today.

timewstr, great tip and thanks for the link!<p>Edit: can't seem to get it to print those pages (steps 36-54). Regardless, I'll need to figure out where to buy that too.<p>And one more edit: I think I have a line on the seat and latch with AthruC.<p><BR><BR>

And the good news is that I can fit a baby seat in between two kid seats in the back of my XC70 so my newborn, 1 year old and 2 year old can ride there, and my older kids can ride in the back.

JTapper,<p>I wish you were closer, cause I have a black interior and would love to swap my rear interior for yours. I can't even imagine how much shipping would be.

Probably quite a bit for shipping. <p>I've never used the 3rd row seat, and only flipped it up twice. Once when I bought the car (looked like the 1st owner never used it either), and once to keep some grocery bags from tipping over. We've got a Land Rover LR3 with third row so if we ever have a big group we just drive that.<p>I take it the rest of you folks use yours quite often?

I'll be using mine quite often by necessity. It's actually more convenient for 3 car seats and the older kids than our minivan. (It's a pain getting into the 3rd row to buckle our 2 year old in, plus, there's not enough room on either side of his car seat for the older kids.)

If anyone in the North/Central Texas area has a tan third row that wants to swap for my non-third row setup, let me know.. I priced the kits online, and can't justify those, but if we could swap the majority of parts, woot!

If I were still in High School, I would imagine it would come in handy.. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Those days are LONG gone, and as much as I care about the safety of the junk in my trunk, it just won't fit in the 3rd row <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"><p>I do remember when I was a wee lad, I used to ride in the 3rd row just for fun because one of my friend's mother's had an 855 w/ the 3rd row <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

He'll actually be meeting me a few hours North of him (when I'm on a 'road trip' of sorts) and we will be swapping + $ <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>(for much less than what he'd pay for one of those)

My sincere thanks to AthruC (Adam), he's a top-notch guy, great to do business with. The kids love the new 3rd row seat.<p>Thanks to all for your direction and help as well.
