    Default Third row seat conversion

    I have 2004 xc70 and would like to add the third row seating. What would be the process to convert if at all possible? Thanks

    Try the search function and you'll soon have all the info you need.

    In short you have a few options.

    Dealer can install it ~$1300

    DIY option- It's not as easy as it would first appear. You have seatbelts, a door locking mechanism, exterior key assembly hidden above the license plate, etc.

    You can acquire the parts new (~$800) from a place like autoweb and do it yourself if you're fairly competant in the diy department.

    You can acquire the parts used in a junkyard on a Volvo. This will take longer to locate but will be the cheapest option.

    You can acquire the parts used on ebay. -Generally, not ideal since you're unlikely to end up with all the parts you need.

    Your cargo floor might have to be mod, including the side floor panels. It might also be possible that the area under the cargo floor boards might not fit the third seat.
