I need help replacing my seats....

Recommended Posts

I have a boxster s with memory seats and the side bolsters are worn down and have some rips plus the leather is all cracked. I was able to find and buy a seat of regular seats but the problem is that they are not full power just power tllt and a manual slider. My memory seats are full leather (up, down, tilt, slide back and front) what I would like to do is just take out the cushions of the non powered seats and just swap them into the tracks/rails of my seats. Has anyone ever done this? thanks. I've tried searching and couldn't find anything except the regular unbolt of the old ones and bolt on the new ones.

You might want to find an auto upholstery shop to do that. It can likely be done but it is easy to over-stretch the leather and the plastic clips used on on some seat panels will likely break from age.

But have a look at both seats it might be something you can do.

Depends what year your seats were.Later models (2002+) used the "CAN-bus system" which is a pain to hack into but can be done. Earlier models just require some rudimentary soldering skills and knowledge of a DMM.

To Lorens point, You could either do it your self or have an shop slip your new skins (and padding) over your old frames.Done.

Regards, PK.
