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.

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.
