Take apart the seats?

Recommended Posts

Removing the seat is not difficult. You need a Torx 12 socket (If I remember right) which is probably the most time consuming part of the process (go to Sear and find a Torx socket set)... Simply remove the slider cover on the front with a phillipt screw driver and you will have access to the front bolts. Do not play with the seat height ajustment when the seat is pulled out, or you will have to push really hard to get it leveled.

The most challenging part is to disconnect the seat wirering harness. You need to take you time. The connector does not simply "pull out", there is a little lever on the side of the connector than need to be rotated to unlock the connector.

BTW, I do not think you can simply "swap" the driver seat with the passenger seat. First all the ajustment controll are on one side of the seat and the seat belt buckle screw on the "interior" side of the car, swaping seat will invert the location...


P.S. do not turn on the key while the seat is disconnected from the wirering harness, the air bag light will come on if it does not detect the seat belt buckle (i.e. you will need a visit to the dealer to reset that light...)
