Our Swift Kontiki has the LB under the driver's seat (I now have a matched pair, one under each seat in the front).
To access it, the driver's seat MUST be totally removed, that involves various stages such as ensuring the batteries (leisure and vehicle ) are disconnected so that no short can result,nthere is NOT much free space and using metal tools near the terminals is potentially risky.
Once the batteries are disconnected, the seat can be removed but the handbrake must be fully detached first.
The seat is heavy, it is secured by four bolts that MUST be tightened to the correct torque figure for safety.. The space for a replacement battery is very tight, so great care must be taken to ensure that the new battery is no taller than the currently fitted one. Replacing the seat also requires great care as it is so heavy and space is tight.
So, choose carefully and proceed with great caution making sure that you know the correct torque values for YOUR vehicle.
I hope that helps identify potential difficulties that MUST be overcome.
Thinking of ALL the front line staff working to try to help others;Doctors, nurses, paramedics, cleaners, NA's, catering staff, support services and all others. Their work is appreciated more than you can ever realise-keep strong and safe.
Any typo that I make means the errorists win.
Remember Jo Cox and what she stood for.
