Only if you can bring back Tommy Cooper.

I believe that they will fit but you will probably have to do some re-wiring if they have heat pads or any other electrical gizmos.

This occured to me later. The two electric devices the seats can have are:
a) heated seat pads. most 360s had these, so if the 340 doesnt, just let the lead dangle!
b) the passenger seat will have a sensor for the seat belt indicator. The driver one is hard wired (i think they assume there will always be a driver), but there is a pressure pad on the passenger seat, so that the warning light only activates if there is a person sitting in the seat.

Time for a trip down memory lane:
3) Earlier this year I re-attached the sensor on my 360 after it had sat wrongly installed for the past 10 years. the look of joy on my face as i watched the light flash on and off as I sat down must may been hilarious to behold!
2) My 20stone+ uncle sat in my dads old 140, and the pressure pad broke (!)
3) When we were about 8, my dad tried to convince me and a friend that the overdrive button on the gearstick was for an ejector seat fitted into the passenger seat. I never check that cars seat wiring, so you may want to check for an ejector seat trigger wire too...!

its been a long evening filled with maths revision...i apologise!

cheers

I have absolutely no idea. My instict is that they wouldnt (as dads 940 ones certainly wouldnt), although the 300 series shares many other interior parts with the 240 (eg: switches). You'd have to try it I guess!

cheers

now that is wierd. it is supposed to work the same with the engine running as you described with just the ignition on, at least that is how mine work. still, if thats the sum total of your cars faults, you can breathe easy - although I am paranoic about this kinda stuff - its all gotta work perfectly! I have even set about illuminating the central tunnel switches (fog lights, rear wiper, etc)! sad, eh? in the meantime while i am playing with the interior, the subframe rusts away...!

cheers
