My experience installing a seat swivel mechanism for my front Sprinter seats

I recently purchased/installed seat swivels for my 2017 Sprinter 2500 crew van. I bought Scopema swivels through Travois and installed the passenger side myself (driver side to be done later). Before I bought them I read a bit about swivels and considered a few different options. The experience of installing and using a swivel made much of what I had read a lot clearer, so I've written this post to offer what information I can to others considering doing the same. Thank you to everyone who has already written about seat swivels; I probably read your post and used it to help me decide what to do.

If anyone has additions/corrections to what I write here, please quote the section and add your thoughts.

Swivel for Sprinter van front driver/passenger seats

Front swivels allow the two seats in the cab to turn from facing forward to facing inward/backward. This permits those seats to be used as part of the interior layout, increasing usability.

Van build stories reviewed in on-line sources frequently cite the utility of having at least a passenger seat swivel. One likened it to adding several feet of length to the van because of its utility. Another stated that it was the favored hangout seat between the two van occupants. Some stories stated that the driver seat swivel was used much less frequently than the passenger swivel.

Operational issues.Caution is warranted, however. Issues reported in swivel seat operation include having to slide seats back and forth while swiveling, seats hitting doors unless doors are opened, dealing with the seat belt attachment, raising/lowering the seat for the plastic trim to clear the base (or removing part of the trim). Other issues include wobble in the seats and possible sharp corners in the swivel structure. Each swivel manufacturer has a slightly different solution. Compare multiple models and review as many on-line information sources as possible for an more informed buying choice.

Other considerations.Access to the contents of the seat base through the factory foam on the top of the base is not freely available after the installation of a swivel mechanism (depending on how much of the top opening is blocked by the swivel). Any items in the seat that may require user access may only be accessible after disassembly of the seat and removal of the swivel. Any circuit breakers, fuses, or switches that were intended for occasional use may need to be relocated.

Swivel seat Theory and Practical Considerations

The idea of a swivel seat is simple; put a rotating joint between the factory seat and the seat base upon which the factory seat is mounted, and use it to rotate the seat around so that it can be used facing to the rear as part of the furniture of the living area of the van.

Practical considerations for front seat swivels include:
  • When the seat rotates, the seat moves through a region of space determined by the center of the swivel’s rotating joint and the position of the seat relative to that center; parts of the van surrounding the seat naturally intersect with the rotation space with the seat in certain positions (forward/backward, seatback tilt)
  • The driver’s seat and the emergency brake are guaranteed to interfere with each other based on their relative positions
  • The seat has a skirt that projects below the top of the base to hide the connection between the base and the seat; this skirt is not positioned such that it can rotate around the base
  • Seats with airbags and/or heating elements have connections through the seat base that must be maintained while rotating, and be kept from being twisted too far
  • One end of the seat restraint system is fastened to the side of the seat; this end of the restraint rotates in space as the seat rotates
  • The swivel’s rotation mechanism fits between the seat base and the seat; this adds height to the seat that is dependent upon the structure of the swivel

For a model year 2017 van with “comfort seats” the following seat components are adjustable in a way that affects how the circular rotation region may interfere with the cabin components surrounding the seat:
  • The bulk of the seat can be slid forward and backwards in a range of 10+ inches; this is a major factor in determining the shape of the rotation space
  • The entire main structure of the seat can be adjusted up and down a range of approximately 1 inch; this affects how the parts of the seat furthest from the center of rotation might interfere with surrounding cabin elements such as the arm rest area of the door, the protrusion of the “B” pillar, the walls of the cabin, and the dash area.
  • The seat back's angle with the seat can be altered from slightly forward of vertical to 90 degrees backward from the vertical; the further backward it is tilted from vertical, the further the seat back is from the center of rotation, and the larger the radius of the area that will be swept out by the seat back
  • The outboard armrest rotates from vertical to less than horizontal; this affects how it might interfere with surrounding cabin elements

Interference between the seat and the surrounding cabin elements as the seat rotates is inevitable in some configurations. There is no possible way to avoid interference across the entire adjustment spectrum. However, a swivel can locate the center of rotation such that it reduces the potential for interference. In particular, locating the center of rotation inboard and/or aft of the center of the seat base can reduce the potential for interference.

This picture shows the interference between the seat back and the door when the seat is adjusted backwards and rotation is attempted.

This picture shows how the interference between the seatback and the door is reduced when the seat is adjusted forward before trying to rotate the seat AND the seat has a center of rotation that is offset from the center of the seat base.
Passenger swivel - start of rotation - seatback-door interaction when seat slid forward.jpg

By the time the seat is rotated 90 degrees, the interference between the seatback and the door is greatly reduced through a combination of the offset center of rotation and adjusting the seat forwards before beginning the rotation. Note that when the seat is rotated 180 degrees there is the possibility of the arm rest on the seat interfering with the arm rest on the door. This interference is reduced somewhat by an offset swivel joint, or by the height adjustment of the seat.

Factory Implementation

The factory solution compensates for increased height by using a lower seat base. This approach allows the factory solution to use a much thicker swivel mechanism than aftermarket swivels designed to install on top of the original height seat base. The seat’s plastic skirt is shorter than the added height due to the swivel mechanism, so nothing needs to be done to allow the skirt to clear the base as the seat is rotated. When a van is equipped with the factory swivel solution, the emergency brake is modified so that the driver’s seat will not interfere with it as it rotates. Unfortunately, the factory solution has limited availability from the factory and is difficult and expensive to retrofit afterwards.

Acquisition alternatives

Purchasing the components necessary to retrofit the factory swivel seat option has been reported to be as high as $3,000 for two seats. Ordering the components may require the use of a vehicle VIN for a vehicle that was originally equipped with the swivel option. Installation requires replacing the original standard height seat bases with lower height bases. Lower seat base heights reduces the volume of space in the seat base which is often used to contain auxiliary devices.

Aftermarket swivel units are available from a small number of suppliers at a wide variety of costs from approximately $250/seat to $500/seat. Several factors in addition to price differentiate the aftermarket swivel products:
  • Safety and/or assurance of safety of the modification such as crash test ratings based on product testing with European or U.S. federal motor vehicle authority approvals
    • The market for swivel mechanisms is relatively small, and the cost of obtaining approvals from motor vehicle authorities is apparently relatively high; not all swivel mechanisms have approvals
  • Height that the swivel mechanism adds to the seat (ranging from 1/2” to over 2”)
    • The lowest adjustment height of the Sprinter seats is already too high for comfort for some people with short legs. Adding additional height (for the swivel mechanism) makes the seats even less comfortable. Acquiring lower factory seat bases may be a way to offset the added height, but this reduces the space under the seat for adding components like batteries, electronics, heaters, etc. Adding higher foot support through a platform or stool is another offset approach for the passenger at least.
  • Offsets to reduce interference as the seat rotates
    • It is possible that simply adjusting the seat to its forward-most position and ensuring the seat back is not reclined may be enough to avoid the worst of the interference, but anecdotal reports exist of people having to open the vehicle door to avoid interface
  • Locking mechanism (to lock seat in forward position while vehicle is in motion)
    • For safety reasons, locking in a forward position is important. A swivel could potentially lock in other positions as well.
  • Smoothness of operation
  • Noise while operating
  • Presence of an attachment point for the seat restraint end normally attached to the seat
    • If the seat restraint end can attach to the swivel and not the seat, the seat restraint would not have extend and wrap around the seat as the seat rotates

    • sanomechanic/Sprinter Forum says MB wants $3,000 for swivels and low bases, and will only sell if one has a cargo van VIN (not crew or Passenger)
    • EvansS/Sprinter Forum said a van builder claimed that the new 2019 swivel seat option with base is “plug and play” for NCV3 van models, and is DOT-approved, but getting them from the dealership requires having a 2019 VIN. Someone else suggested they might be using seat bases from the Vito(?)

  • User anecdotes:
    • JoeyB/Sprinter Forum claims the swivel is very smooth
    • odix/Sprinter Forum added Sportscraft swivels to 2016 Sprinter (Driver and Passenger) - said seat was too high - added passenger for footstool - looked at replacing seat bases, but driver’s side was more of a hassle than desired - eventually bought Alpine swivel for passenger and 1/2” difference in height was acceptable and quality was good
    • 143paul/Sprinter Forum has a 2018 144” 4x4 and says he installed swivels from Sprinter Upgrades but they raised the height by 1.75”, so he used lower bases from the air ride seats (Part Numbers "906-910-79-00 Seat console passenger 906-910-73-00 Seat console driver”) which are over 3” lower than the standard factory bases that the seat height was good for his wife but too low for him. He rectified the driver seat problem by adding a 1” riser.

    • Motodisiac/Sprinter Forum is selling a “CTA seat swivel” (aka Reimo and RIB Components?) - says it is highest quality European made, sold by several companies under their own name. This might be same as “Scopema” (but doesn’t appear to be)

User anecdotes on increased height compensation

  • Belchfire1/Sprinter Forum installed swivels on a 2016 van (brand?) and wife complained of seat being too tall so he built a wooden floor that raises floor height about 2” for her.
  • russinthecascades/Sprinter Forum put 1.5” high swivels on his 2015 2500, then installed a layer of firm foam covered by a one-piece floor mat; when pivoted to face backwards they are a good 3” too high because the floor in the rear of the seat is much lower than the front, so he uses a foam block as a foot rest.
  • Several Sprinter Forum members mentioned using folding stools to increase floor height after adding swivels (EasyReach by Gorilla Ladders is one).

Some Scopema swivel details - point in time information circa June 2020

Scopema website indicates height is 23mm, which is .90 inches, which is slightly over 7/8”. Seem to have a European approval rating. Weight is 12 kg (26.5 lb). Offset facing inwards range from 0 to 60mm; offset facing rear range from 0 to 160mm. Model Mercedes Sprinter CBTO15D2 (can’t tell if letter O or number 0). Scopema site lists part numbers as Driver: 1 swivel Ref.CBTO15G2 + Ref.AHPFMS conseillé (AHPFMS is the handbrake cover); and Passenger: 1 swivel Ref.CBTO15D2. Measured offset from mechanical center to center of rotation is about 1/2 inch inboard, 1 3/4 inches rearward.

Sprinter Upgrades sells both SportsCraft and Scopema (but only seems to have Scopema in the 2019+ version). Area code 971 indicates Oregon.

Nomad Vanz in North Vancouver might sell them for Sprinters (2019+ for 500 CAD).

Travois carries Scopema swivels for both NCV3 and VS30 (,

faroutride tested Scopema (7/8” height), Swisstech (1 1/8” height), SwivelsRus (2 1/8” height) and DiscountVanTruck (1 3/4” height) swivels in their Ford Transit. Liked the Scopema and Swisstech low-friction rotation, said that wobble on the Scopema swivel was medium to high but it can’t be felt while driving. Scopema was all-time favorite of ones tested.

My Scopema installation experience

The Sprinter seat base and the Scopema swivel mechanism are both about 18" square. The effects of the Scopema swivel offset from the structural center of this 18" square is clearly seen as soon as the swivel mechanism is mounted on the seat base.

One of my seat base threaded holes was bunged up such that the MB bolts would screw in with mild resistance, but the bolts supplied with the Scopema swivel would not. I cleaned the threads up with a tap. Following the cleanup, the Scopema bolts screwed in with little resistance.

The Scopema bottom plate’s holes barely overlapped the seat base holes; I had to get all four corners started, then tighten alternately to get all four bolts in place.

I had to trim a fair amount of material off of the seat skirt trim in order for the skirt to clear the bottom plate of the swivel while rotating when the seat was in its lowest up/down position. I had to trim even more material off of the inboard side of the skirt to gain enough clearance for the side-mounted swivel operating lever to have clearance a) through the seat’s full range of fore/aft movement, and b) the operating lever’s rearward unlocking movement.

The distance between the bottom of the bottom plate and the top of the top plate of the Scopema swivel mechanism is given as 23 mm, or about 0.9 inches. My measurements confirmed this approximate height. Installing the Scopema swivel adds just under one inch to the lowest height adjustment for the seat.

This picture shows the mechanical center of the Scopema swivel (represented by the crossing strings) versus the center of rotation; this is the driver swivel - the rotation offset is inboard and to the rear. For those with sharp eyes, you will note that the center of the bulge in the rear of the swivel (bottom in the photo) is slight to the right of the center of the plate, and the cutout in the front of swivel (top of the photo) is not symmetrical either. The camera angle and shadow make it harder to tell, but the inward angle on the left is more gradual than the inward angle on the right, making the horizontal middle section slightly offset to the right.
Driver swivel - structural center versus center of rotation.jpg

This picture shows the passenger swivel mechanism rotated just shy of 90 degrees; the offset rotation is clearly visible. This offset reduces the amount the seat needs to be adjusted in order for seat parts to clear the Sprinter door.
