the seat base on my drivers side is shot. looking at replacing it and a passenger side would be the best bet as they tend to be better condition. can the bases just be swapped over or would it require a bit more work?

thanks
Duncan

Are you looking at changing the foam and fabric or more?

Foam and fabric are easy enough, but the metal frames are a mirror image of each other. The seat belt buckle will cause a few headaches.

the current foam is ok, its mostly the fabric cover that is a bit threadbare in the middle. i would probably change the foam and fabric though.
done it on a toyota and it was easy, but thought i would check first before i commit!

Apart from a few strings and clips, it's dead easy.
