Operation & Maintenance: (this video is for a T5 van but is very similar for the Trafic/Vivaro):
As these vehicles come with a seat-belt pre-tensioner system you do need to unplug one connection under the seat before turning (it only takes a few seconds). This needs to be plugged back in before driving off but your dashboard warning light will remind you if you forget.
Currently, this swivel is Not TÜV certified. We do intend to submit the swivel for these additional tests but at this stage do not have any concrete timescales.
TÜV approval process in Germany
We currently do not have TÜV certification for this swivel, however we have had a few customers in Germany successfully get it approved. If you are in Germany and are prepared to take the risk, please read the following document we have put together with the help of one of our customers. The document outlines the TÜV approval process: TÜV-Zulassung.
This Double Seat Swivel has passed seat belt anchorage safety tests conducted by STATUS (The Specialist Testing Facility at Manchester Met Uni) using a pull test on a specialist test rig to EC Directive 76/115/EEC as amended by 2005/41/EEC.
