Recaro seats in a Q4

Post by pauliecarzz »

hello
Need some help, Trying to swap out the Recaros into the Q4 and we notice that the seats do not sit on the Flooring flush on either side, passenger side motor is touching the floor and the driver side is very close to the floor as well and will not properly mount. I would speculate that the flooring design is different on a Q4 than the S or Q model and Spacers are required for the Q4. Any Advice here would be Appreciated.

As I don't have those type of seats in my Q4, I don't know, but since they were available options, they must fit. Probably some spacers are needed at different locations, most likely towards the center console.

After some research yes spacers are required, I'd imagine I need to install them in all 4 corners to keep the seat evenly level. Just need to figure out the thickness. thanks

yes, makes sense to put on all corners 👍

Please post some photos of the solution you get to - and of the seats as well 😊

The Recaro Seats in my Super was placed much higher than the Recaro seats in my 92’ QV. The Super was a 93’ model.
The later Recaro seats look the same, but are changed to fit Q4 cars. This is the Super. Sold.

Interesting. They do still look to be positioned quite low in the Super.
