    Here are some photos of my saloon rear seats I've just taken.
    I would say that the locking mechanism would be different for a start.







    Hope this helps

    Part numbers are different for the saloon and hatch rear seats so obviously a difference - probably the catch positions as you say Ian.

    Yeah, totally different. With the hatch the seats clip into the same plastic piece with the release catch, there is no hole in the middle as with the saloon. you could perhaps buy new releases for them, but the seats probably have different internals, so i wouldn't chance it.

    One of the reasons I got my hatch SRI seats so cheap was that the guy bought them for a saloon & they didn't fit, unless you find a rare set of leather SRI seats I wouldn't want to downgrade to seats from an Elite, prefer the sports seats from a SRi (or even better the GSi), thought about a retrim?, have a look at mine http://forum.vectra-c.com/showthread.php?t=28528 & be as mad with colours as you like fancy lime green & orange - no problem

    No need to panic as it is possible to fit them. I have the saloon and fitted the hatchback. I took the leather of the hatchback and refitted it to the saloon. You will end up with a bit to fiddle about with on the locking bit either side tho. Oh and the rear bolsters are different so you cannot fit them. If u do retrim then use cable ties to replace the metal rings that you remove behind the leather trim. The front seats will fit fine.
