    Default Mounting a fire extinguisher into a B5 A4 Avant. CAMS Car Club Challenge

    Hey all, i'm getting involved in the CAMs Car Club Challenge this weekend and spotted that i need a fire extinguisher as part of scruitineering. Now i've already got a 1kg fire extinguisher that's in spec with metal cage, but need to figure out mounting it into the cabin.

    Normally it seems that the idea is to mount it using the bolts for the front passenger seat that bolts the seat frame to the floor but in that car, it doesn't bolt into the floor, but instead the rails seems to mount sideways into the sides of the cabin / drive shaft tunnel.

    Has anyone managed to successfully manage to mount a fire extinguisher into the without destroying the interior?

    Cheers,

    Alister

    Cheers, i have found schedule H which is quite detailed, but it doesn't help with the how. that's the bit i'm stuck on. I've been chatting with a few other friends who've gone through this before, so hopefully i can pull something together tomorrow.
