WTB: Ford E series captain seat bracket

Hello,

I have been searching for the bracket that bolts to the floor at my second row to attach the captains chair. My rig is a 2003 E350 chateau. Ive called ford dealers and junk yards all over with no luck. Does anybody have a bracket or a lead on where I may track one down?

I attached a photo as a reference.

Thank you!
Brandon

I ended up finding mine on FB, of all places. Not FB Marketplace, but on one of the Van For Sale groups. Not sure if you have the seatbelt situation figured out, but I've been having the hardest time finding a seat belt receptacle that is compatible with my 2013 belts.

Unfortunately I think the captains chairs and brackets are pretty desirable and in high demand, so when one shows up it goes quick. You've got to be diligent and quick to act.

Right on, thanks for the info.

Luckily I have the factory seats and seatbelts that came out of the van. I either never got the mounting plates or misplaced them years ago. I think I was able to find a plate online.

Also good to know they are so sought after, I only have space for one, Ill put the second one up for sale.

Thanks again,

Brandon

Aren't the two brackets identical? The seat installs from the passenger side for both.

As I remember trying to swap the seats they wouldn’t mount correctly???

I believe that is done so you can’t swap seats and have the ability to run without a seat belt…

Yeah Roger that, I'm needing both plates. I found a drivers side plate and it arrived just now, I'll see if the pass side fits on it. Whats weird is some places online show it as two different part numbers which would indicate they are different to me, the passenger side plate is 2-3x as much money also. The ford dealer in my town is certain its the same part side to side...

Center to center on the RH/passenger side pins are 11-1/8", LH/drivers side C-C is 11".

I found the drivers side plate also, thanks for the help.
