Seat Contol Removal


MAX

Recommended Posts

I am in the process of replacing the leather on the seat cushion of my drivers side Boxster S. The instructions I have show what I think are 3 screws for removal of the seat control plate and the two handles?

There are two very visible small screws that were easy to remove, got that done. Beyond that, there appears to be another screw at the the bottom of a very small hole in one of the levers and I can not figure out how to remove it? Does anyone know the specific type of screw or tool for removal?

Any other tips on getting this control unit removed?

Thanks

Max

If this is the standard manual seat then you first remove the handle that controls the seat height by pulling it straight off. Then remove the two small screws. There are two plastic hooks on the back of the panel at the bottom edge. Grab the panel and slide it up then out. The seat tilt switch has to be disconnected from the back after the panel is off.

AR,

Thanks a lot. I was able to get the seat control apart and I am just waiting for the delivery of my new "skin".

I am taking some pictures of the seat as I take it apart if anyone is interested? I have a pretty ugly seat the previous owner spilled some chemical on it.

I hope to get it back into new condition soon. Another version of one of those makeover things the girls watch I guess?

Would you know what kind of screw head is used on the small screws. I don't want to take my seat out to remove the screws, and I can't figure out if it requires a Philips or Torx ....... Not much clearance to get access to these two small screws.

Thanks

:)
