DIY GT3 Seats back painting

Recommended Posts

Hello to all! I´d like to know how hard is to unmount the GT3 seat so I can send the rear cover to paint ? It is hard, easy ? I can have it painted pretty cheap at a paint shop near me if I only take the cover to them, while the dealer wants a fortune to do everything...

Thanks in advance :D

It's easy to take out any 996 seat. Remove the 4 torx head bolts that fasten the seat rails to the chassis, disconnect the wiring harness under the seat, and the seat is ready to lift out. The GT3 seat is very light, so it's easy to get it out. Just protect the door frame and sill to ensure you don't scratch them with the seat rails.

I haven't taken the seat backs off, so someone else will have to comment on how to do that. If you're painting the backs, you may want to consider also painting the plastic pieces that line the shoulder belt holes. That trim is fastened on with a couple of screws.
