More space in GL sedan?

How can you get the rear seats in a sedan to fold down?
If they dont fold down as stock seats, is there another model/year that will fit in that can fold down? I miss the fold down seats from my 92 Loyale s/w, but as most people know from talking to me, I have no intention of getting rid of my car... I will take him to the grave

I know it was on the 1st gen Legacy, but that wont help you any...wider, wont fit.
hopefully someone will know and chime in.

all you need to do is get your hands on the rear seat set from a GL10, unbolt your old seat, bolt in the GL10 stuff - easy peasy (or it was on the Lego anyway. ) might want to get the trim pieces that go around the opening, too, cover up the exposed metal edges in that area, and possibly the trunk carpet since it will probably attach to the bottom back edge of the seat back like the wagons do.

Did XT seats just come in gray? I wouldnt mind going back to the blue interior that Ned once had but all I see is gray, gray and more gray.

Your best bet for a back seat is probably an 86 GL-10. and 87+ will be the button type upolstry which looks more caddy than subaru. 85 GL-10's are pretty tough to find (if they even made em??) The fabric will be a pretty close match, just a little softer (more velour like)
For XT6 seats you will likely end up with grey. XT4 seats are about half and half blue and grey. I think about half the EA82's I have owned had blue interiors, the others were brown or grey (never had a black or black/red one)

Im in no hurry, I like my seats, but someday...
I just wanted to know just in case a decent set came along, or a parts car that the owner was getting rid of parts for..

Mine is probably broken in some special way, like the rest of my car. But they do fold down..

Do XT6 rear seats fit in a GL... I got an 88 XT6 parts car I want to put the front seats in Ned, and the rear seats too, since I already have grey seats in a blue interior, I dont wanna mismatch EA82 rears, with XT6 fronts with a blue interior haha.

I wasn't really comfortable with that, I cut the tabs off the GL brackets, and welded them on the XT6 brackets at the correct location. Then I just mounted the EA82 brackets onto the passenger side seat (not really an option with the driver's side as the height adjustment complicates things).

News on the rear seats anyone?

I pulled out my back seats today in about 5 minutes to get in to my trunk (long story..).
Just pull them out and see if they fit!

My 86 XT had fold down rear seats, but it had the hole cut out, the extra flap, and still had some "structure" around the hole to support the rear of the body.. It doesn't look like that from the trunk. It looks like my 81 Firebird (solid, but some X-bars bracing the wheel wells)...
I knew Subaru had changed some of the panels/body for the Loyale, maybe this was one of them?
