Hoping someone can help me repair my seat frame, can anybody help with some measurements for repairing this? The brackets are missing from my bulkhead so I've no reference to measure from.

Nobody got a curved back seat back they can take a quick measurement from? Need to know how far the tube sticks out and how far the pivot bar sticks out of tube.

Somebody cut that 45 degree? If so why? Hope someone can help you.
Here's a long shot from the gallery. Click on it then click again.

1.25" from the start of the pipe to the edge
The tab sticks out 0.5":

Excellent thanks Everett. Should be relatively easy to fix now I have the correct measurements.

Managed to find something genuine vw to fix this, I don't have any spare seat frames to cut up so went looking in my shed for something that would work.

Needs drilling out to match ID but that's no biggie.
