This type of question's been posted in tha past quite a few times, therefore it might be worth doing a search....

iirc, there's a difference is with the rear seat mountings and with the way that the rear seat backs are retained.

Beyond that, there are differences in the height of the seat backs between body styles. e.g. the estate of both Mk1 & Mk2 mondys are taller than the hatch & saloon.

Should be a straight swap if it is going from a saloon to a saloon etc. The only major difference is that the MK1 uses a spring loaded seatbelt pretensioner whereas the Mk2 uses a pyrotechnic device so you need to make sure that you get the whole lot.

mk1 interior into mk2 is a lot easyer if going into a mk1 only problem i can see is the mounting to hold seat in place you would need to get the ring bit that the latch holds onto and weld it or something onto the frame on mk1 as the seat release buttons and the latch on mk2 are on the seat where as on mk1 the latch is on the car and the ring bit is on the seat.

to convert mk1 to mk2 you need to cut a few holes in the material and transfer the material onto the mk2 frame seat backs the base of the back seat is the same and the front seats are the same but on mk2 you have the seatbelt pretentioners with wiring on them (the thing u plug your seatbelt into) so if your putting mk1 seats into mk2 you need to swap these and one of the seats has left hand thread nut i forget which.
