FR3 25DS 2014 - Drivers Chair

Ok, I need some advise or help from the wise and talented forum members. Is there a mod or trick to turning the drivers chair around 180 deg.? The passengers chair turns around, but would like to have the drivers chair turn 180 deg. to make the area more usable. Thanks for all your help. Mr. J

Pull the captains chair all the way forward. Pull both arm rest up and use the tilt control handle on the left side of the chair and push the seatback towards the steering wheel. Release the swivel lever and turn the chair around. Then readjust the chair to your liking.

Forgot to tell you to also adjust the tilt steering wheel to the highest position.

IMO, another problem is that the chair(s) will then rotate but not lock into position. They will be free wheeling, and I didn't like that. I used a die grinder and placed two additional notches in the locking plate under the chairs. So now I can lock either chair into 1 of 2 different positions (other than the home position)
