Install Toyota Sienna seat

Hi everyone, we need to install a passenger seat for our bus and scored a 2005 Toyota sienna middle seat with an embedded seatbelt. However I na´vely thought I would just be able to buy some tracks or base online to install it but cannot seem to find what I need. Any advice for this? We are not the MacGyver type at least at this point. Ideally we would like some thing that swivels. Thank you!

The Toyota seats are designed with special floor tracks, so remounting them in something else could create issues.
I'm looking for the 2011- 2021 Sienna seat that reclines and has leg extensions.

Take a look at the videos Juan and Michelle made, about this very same thing. They may help give you inspiration and, if you can't make your own brackets, perhaps you can find someone local to make them?

I have no experience doing this, but this is just an idea..

How about looking at "pull part" lots or junk yards? You might be able to find tracks out of a wrecked minivan. Then you will prob need some level of macgyver-ing..but if you can't find the tracks new, maybe look used?

I just saw your comment about wanting something that swivels...sorry I missed it on the first pass. Juan and Michelle have a later video in which they added a swivel base to one of their Sienna seats. I recommend adding that to your watch list, too.
