Cannot turn pilot or copilot seats

My pilot seat will turn only halfway being blocked by the steering wheel. My copilot seat will not turn at all its been mounted too close to the right wall. Does anyone turn there seats around and is there something I dont know about?

This topic has come up so many times, however, depending on the year and model, you'll get all kinds of answers from others as to if one of two seats can be turned around or not.

In my case, the driver seat will only turn 90 degrees also because of the steering wheel. As for the passenger seat, you must slide it on it's track as far forward as possible first. Then by pulling the other lever under the seat, you can turn it around 180 degrees to face the living quarters.

Your results may vary.

The passenger seat on our "11 378 will swivel 180 if you run it forward first. The drivers seat will only go a little better than 90 degrees, but I wonder with tilting the wheel all the way forward and moving the seatback straight up and the seat all the way back that I might be able to get past the steering wheel. Will try next week when we have it out.

I turn my '05 359ts all the time. You have to slide the seats fore and aft and tilt the wheel up and tilt the seat back down but eventually, it happens.

The passenger seat is hindered by the easy chair behind it so I seldom turn it.

Well, just discovered that the passenger seat on our 360 does turn around but the drivers will not.

Hey All,

Just took delivery of a 2012 350 and tried to turn both seats around. The passenger seat turned around with no issues, just had to slide seat forward/backward.

The driver's seat also made it all the way around but was a struggle. I had to move the seat forward/backward, tilt the seat back forward/backward, and move the left arm rest. I won't be doing this procedure for our quick weekend desert/beach trips, but will do it for longer stays.

The Euro recliner fits nicely between the front seats when they are turned around and the Euro is out of the way.

Hoping to take the first trip next weekend.
