    Fiat 500L Seat Delete

    Hello all! I am one of the millennials working on a "smol house" project in my 500L, basically turning it into a close-to-full functioning camper. I've got something basically going with it now, but the rear bench takes up a LOT of room, that i could use for storage. I'd like to preform a seat delete on the back seats, so i can make a whole new platform for my mattress to go on, with some small storage underneath. The problem is, I can't search for "Fiat 500L seat delete" without nearly EVERY result bringing up seat delete kits for the regular 500. And it's really, really frustrating.

    Is there any easy way to remove the back seats? It looks like since they "tumble"it shouldn't be too hard, simply removing them at the pivot point. But, I haven't done much more digging beyond that.

    Has anyone else tried this? Is it that different from deleting a normal 500's rear seats?

    Any tips and answers are greatly appreciated

    Well, I have an Elle; but plan on leaving the back seat in. HOWEVER, I did remove the back seat cushions from my '79 Strada...just a cotter pin in each, IIRC. Somehow, I don't think the crash testing folks have kept it that easy to do! Good luck!

    I have used my 500L for my rural mail route and removed the back seat. There are three torx bolts in the front, and the you need to release the tension rods, which help the seat go up, and the gas struts, which are pretty easy to pop off. First time, should take you about 20 minutes or so. There is a sound deadening pad under the back seat that you'll have to remove to get access to the tension rod's bolts, and the lower release for the gas struts. Its not hard to do, it's just very cumbersome. And those seats are frickin' heavy! BUT once you get that seat out it will almost double your usable space, and make your load floor almost completely flat. And there is more than enough to camp in that thing. Good luck! And definitely keep us posted. I had the same idea a while back, but can't execute it since I use it for work. I'd like to see your setup!

    hello, I am writing from Italy and in my 500L I have not made a complete mini camper, but an idea how to rest in the car, maybe it might interest you-
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d119YoOK5K4

    in the preface of the video I write:
    For some years I have given up on the vehicle dedicated to Plein Air, but not to travel independently. The car is certainly a faster means of transport and during the day I reached destinations even 1400 km away.
    But the years pass and the recovery times from post-travel physical stress have lengthened considerably, therefore in the future an intermediate stop is mandatory where you can rest for 5 or 6 hours.


    Hotels, B & Bs are options, but with a plein-air vacation past, I considered equipping my 500L with a comfortable bed.
    In northern Europe and especially in Germany, motorway service areas are often well equipped with rest areas where truck drivers and campers stop to rest in their vehicles, alternatively, campsites that provide special spaces for transfer stops " Stop and Go ".


    Immediately I take the internal measurements of the car, these allow you to install a bed structure suitable for 2 people, I can stay there comfortably.
    Well, all that remained was to draw up the project having as a priority:
    1) keep the five approved places usable before and after use for sleeping
    2) keep the weight of the elements necessary for the bed low
    3) ease and speed of assembly and disassembly
    4) being able to store the elements of the bed behind the backs of the rear seats without that
    obstruct the driver's view.
    5) keep a good part of the boot available for suitcases & C. without realizing
    elements that hinder the possible need to remove the spare wheel.

    BlueNado is right on the money. I took my back seat out. Believe it or not it took me longer to get the seat out of the car than it did to undo it. I took my seat out this past June and live in TN, After what felt like wrestling a bear I finally got the seat out and I looked like I had been swimming. The small section is not to cumbersome but much heaver than it looks. The large section is just a royal pain to get out, it is extremely heavy and working within the confines of the car does not help. Worth the time it took to get them out. It took me about 45 min. My goal is to turn the "L" into a panel van. A place to gain storage is the foot well of the back seat. I am in the process of extending the bed over the foot well. By doing so it causes a cavity I will use a piano hinge on the plate to that area and it can be flipped up to gain access to the foot well and the space under the front seats. If you have the Beats system the base box will fit in the back seat foot well and extend under the front seat. I put mine in the foot well behind the driver and use the other side for out of sight storage. I also just bought the spare tire kit for mine. It fits nicely under the car. I have a silver Lounge and will go to a two tone paint layout. The hood and sides above the door handles and top will be painted Midnight Blue. I will try to duplicate the paint scheme of the 695 Rvale. The question is do I want to do away with all the glass and back doors. My vision says yes but my pocket book may say no. Good Luck. Keep us posted and don't forget to share pics.

    sleeping in car: an accessory self made for my 500L
    how I made an aerator to install on the car door glass
    Modern cars with closed windows have limited natural ventilation, considering that it is not advisable to spend the night with open or partially open windows, I have created a panel with an air intake to install in the glass of one of the rear doors.
    To do this, it is necessary to provide a groove at the bottom that will overlap the glass, while the top must fit into the upper door seal when closing the window.
    I choose a plexiglass panel about 4mm which I work with a vibrating blade tool. First I prepare the part that has to adapt to the glass guides and also practice the opening to insert the air intake, then 2 elements that overlap in the nr. 1 to make the seat where it will fit in the glass, I continue removing 2 elements of a ventilation grill in plastic material, I assemble the pieces using a mounting adhesive and to make everything more robust after making holes with a red hot nail, I insert plastic pins that stick out a few millimeters from both sides, then With a red hot tin soldering iron I level off the excess parts of the pins that will actually melt into one with the assembled elements.
    Complete the job by refining the pieces with abrasive paper and a pair of coats of gloss black paint that partially camouflages it to the black of my car roof.
