As a key expert in the 2CV and its derivative models, the 2CV Méhari Club Cassis offers a range of brand new commodities that is both unique and exclusive, for the reconditioning of your 2CV seats. Our collection is unique with regard to the diversity in our catalog, with nearly 300 products available, and is exclusive in that these auto parts are practically all made in our workshops in Cassis. They all bear the “Original Quality” label, which distinguishes our spare parts and components as quality products manufactured in the strictest compliance with the Citroën specifications and tradition, using the brand’s historic machine tools, or working from the original standards, materials and specimens.
Our range of seats is divided into 4 categories. The first covers seat components: rails, armatures and frames, foams, mattressing, seat straps, reinforcement rods, springs, trims and adjustment plugs, as well as special upholstery tools and equipment for those who do motor sport with their 2CV, such as harnesses, etc. The second category is for seat trimmings, while the last two are for covers and safety belts having roadworthiness certification.
To be able to guarantee made-in-France manufacturing with full original compliance, the 2CV Méhari Club Cassis does all its production work in-house, within a workshop that handcrafts thousands of trimmings every year. They are made in nearly 25 colors, in a variety of different patterns and materials, allowing hundreds of combinations of upholstery for your 2CV saloon or van. We use fabrics (deep-dyed fabrics or printed weaves) or Skaï halftones, with or without pleats, with squared or rounded corners, making our selection of trimmings for 2CV seats practically unlimited, with a number of reference best sellers such as Citroën black or brown weaved halftone, lozenge-patterned gray velvet, Scotch fabric or red diamond-patterned. Some of these fabrics and patterns have been milestones in the history of the Citroën legend. For instance, at the time of its launch and up to 1953, only the gray fabric - made half and half of wool and cotton - was used for the upholstery of the first models. Then came the Scotch fabrics in viscose. Ultimately, between 1970 and 1986, most of the vehicles were equipped as series production standard with 2CV seats in black or brown Skaï halftone. The other colors were available as on option, notably with different colors of striped, hound's-tooth-pattern, diamond-pattern (jacquard) or checkered fabrics.
Before you place your order for a seat trim, be sure to identify your model from among the different versions that have existed over the course of the vehicle’s history. There have indeed been vehicles with two bench seats - called a two-piece (one single bench seat at the front for the driver and front passenger, and one rear bench seat), while others - so-called three-piece versions, with two separate seats at the front and one bench seat in the back. Bear in mind that some rare rear bench seats are tippable on some models (ENAC), like the rear bench seats of the Dyane.
Additionally, on some models, the trims had pleats on the sides of the seat - these are known as pleated or pleatless 2CV seats. Plus the top corners of the armature of front seats may be squared or rounded. To get a better illustration of all these versions of seats, and to order the model that is perfect for your 2CV, visit our technical site and look in the section covering seat selection. You’ll also find our bayadere trims have the particularity of being able to be fitted without springing. The name of these trimmings is derived from the striped fabric from which they are made (bayadere fabric), which first came out with the launch of the ALL model in November 1956.
We also sell covers for 2CV seats and head rests, for those who don’t want to totally renovate all of their upholstery. They offer the dual advantage of concealing the state of wear - or even dilapidation - of your upholstery, and of protecting your seats against heat when the said seats are in Skaï halftoning and your vehicle has spent a long time exposed to sunlight. These covers are also available in various materials (foam-backed plush loop or velvet) and a gamut of colors.
For upkeep and maintenance, we are the exclusive stockist of elastic rubber rings, which are listed in the Seat Components section. These entered into general use from 1954 onwards, whereas the system of attachment on the older models had been straps composed of a cotton strip with a flat rubber ring at each end, equipped with a securing hook. This system - which is no longer commercially available - can be replaced without problem by a springer and elastic rings or bayadere trimmings, notably for more comfort on long journeys.
If you have questions regarding your seats, don’t hesitate to visit our technical forum or contact our sales staff by email or telephone. Whatever the case, put your trust in the 2CV Méhari Club Cassis for the upholstery of your beloved Citroën.
