I've got a problem I have no idea how to go about fixing.

I have never had the rear seats apart in a swift with fold down split seats.

I bought a set of swift seats for my metro.

I have never seen any metro with split rear fold down seats.

I cannot install the rear upper seats due to the center support/pivot bracket not being present.

I will probably never see another swift in a junkyard

I was wondering if anyone knows if the brackets from a swift bolt into a metro, and if anyone has an extra set?

I had the same problem. I was swapping 1990 t3 seats into my 1991 sprint. The t3 was rear split, the sprint was not. I was unable to remove the middle bracket from the t3 car, it appears to be permanently attached. Unless you want to drill it out. I installed them without the middle bracket. When the seats are down they have play side to side, but when the are upright and locked they stay firmly in place.

The centre pivot is not needed. It will give some additional support but nothing your passengers will ever notice.

the center pivot is bolted on from the bottom, access it thru the spare tire well. I pulled the seats from a turbo car years ago, but I seem to have misplaced the center pivot bracket.....good luck finding one!
