All Ami 8 have reclinables front seats, as the last Ami 6 club. And Ami super's seats are the same as Ami 8...

Bugger me.

Yep, you're right (I welded mine on Scars on Wheels this summer Laughing)

But AMI Super seats are not the same.

They have a lever system to recline the seats... not a screw system like AMI 8... I'm pretty sure of that.

The screw system has been put on from first ami 8 (and latest Ami 6 club) to the presentation of the Ami Super in 1973. At this date, it began a lever system Laughing

Hello Robin,
AFAIK all Ami6/8/Super Break rearbenches are able to lay down, BUT you could not remove the back without mdifications.
I have nerver ssen an Ami8 with front bench. The had allways 2 seperated seats - even the 3 door Breaks 'Service' (Tolee, Vitree).

How to get A model rear benches 'reclinable':
╗ grind down the 'rivet' (bolt's head) which keeps bench and back together.
╗ remove the bolt.
╗ narrow 2 oppsite sides/areas parallel.
╗ weld the bolt.

╗ Open/cut the 'eye' of the back.

Pay attention to get the right direction. I did it in the way that I have to press down the back to remove/install the back --> it does not come out at once/alone. Grind/file the slot carefully to keep it as narrow as possible
╗ ready. lay back on bench, find the 2 slots. Press down.
╗ Turn up. If you worked accurate the back is as stiff as original.

╗ Bench with removed back:


I hope this manual helps or give you an input. :)

╗Horst
