Re: 37 Replacement seats

38 seats are similar.
Look around for prices to recover them.
A semi-retired upholsterer would be ideal.
Check the EFV8 roster for club members in your area.
Good luck.
New Zealand.

Re: Windshield glass removal 39 coupe

The small screws can be a nuisance sometimes if they break off while undoing them.
