    Default Car seat cushions

    I own a left hand drive 450.
    The drivers seat is starting to show sign of age.

    I have found online a 450 right hand drive car with the same fabric pattern and in good condition.

    How easy is it to remove the cushions and transfer to the existing seat frame ?

    The frames are slightly different as the drivers side has the seat angle knob and the passenger side has the reclining levers.

    thanks

    You can change the fabric with foam , from driver seat to passenger seat or otherway around

    I replaced the cushions on my driver seat from a passenger seat last week.

    You will need 4 push clips as smart use 2 on the headrest and 2 on the back cushion.

    All the white clips did not break on removal.

    Job did not take too long.

    The head rest must be removed first.

    The back cushion has some stiff wire to tension the top of the fabric which can only be accessed when headrest is removed.

    Using a forked clip removal tool made the job very easy.

    The base cushion does not use clips but folded lip over the seat frame.
