Default RRC seats in D1 anyone??

has anyone swapped RRC seats into a D1 --i am attempting this swap--it looks pretty straight forward--also swapping center console and switches for heaters due to seat switch postion???

If the center console is from a '95 it shouldn't be any issue

I did it but didn't move the center console. Things plug together under the seat as expected, but you have to use the seat switches on the side of the rangie seats. to move them.

I have yet to get around to plumbing the seat switches back to center console, I forsee that never happening. lol

Takes no no time at all to swap. and one of the best mods , that arm rest makes all the difference on long trips

i find the p38 seats more comfortable than the D1 seats.

yes rear bolts in too.

Just to confirm. I used 1995 Range Rover Classic seats.

I have no idea if p38 seats are the same.

The seat and arm rest is far superior to the disco stuff, and there is that great rangie leather smell.

Is this RRC-to-D1 swap only possible with a '95 RRC?

I have seats from a '92 RRC that do *not* fit the (manual) seat bases in my '94 D1. The RRC seat rails are spaced far to wide.

94 and 95 D1s have different rails.
Most Classic seats can be installed in 96-99 D1 - I didn't have to drill any holes to mount a set of RRC seats in my D1.

I believe I have 92 or 93 RRC front seats in my 96 D1.

I believe any of the RRC years normally found here (88-95) will go right into a 97 D1 with no issues. I've had some unidentified year in my 96 before-returned them to a friend who has ~18 RRC's and all his seats are the same in term of style.

If you've got a good donor and can make the jump to the RRC backseat too I'd say it's worth it-not sure if you have kids but mine love the arm rest(s).

FWIW the RRC seats in the Disco were damn nice, I probably should have kept them in there but like a dumbass I switched to cloth-eventually then going to leather, power to get the heat option back.

I knew the back fit, didn't know the front fit, too. I hate setting my arm on the console, can't wait to come across a full set

Not w/o some modifications. DII seats have the mounts built into the seats. So they have to be cut off and new tabs welded onto the rails. Not a horrible job if you have an angle grinder and a welder.

I just located a set of '92 RRC County leather seats in good but dusty condition in a salvage yard to swap into my "96 D1. Any tricks to moving the seat on the rails with a 12V battery source to the motors? I assume you need switches on the side and the seat ECU's? And the back seat, do you need the RRC matching latches on the pillars or will the D1 latches work the same? Thanks for the help Guys!

No idea if the rear seats fit; I have the '93 RRC front seats in a 96 D1. The mounts are slightly different but compatible and require no fabrication. I have never bothered wiring the adjustment motors - adjusted the driver seat using clip leads how I wanted, and haven't changed position in six or seven years. I moved the passenger seat forward/back a couple of times when I had very tall passengers (using clip leads as well).

Did they ever make manual RRC seats that would fit into a 1996 D1 SD?

You may be able to find some in a rare 91 Hunter, other than that - most NAS Classics came with power seats.
