View Full Version : Seat Replacement

This might be a dumb question, but I have asked a lot of them in my life, so here goes.......................
Will the seats from a Supercoupe fit into an LX without too much problem??????
I am sure this has been asked before, but I have a chance to obtain a complete interior, front and rear seats, from a 1994 SC. Will they fit into my 1995 LX????????

I'm not sure of the details but ppl have done it. The seats should just bolt right in however I am not too sure about the wiring and air hoses.

I believe that Andrew Vengust is currently running seats out of an earlier SC in his LX. He'd be the perfect guy to ask.

........and here I am!!!!
Sorry, couldn't resist with an intro like that to take advantage of (thanks Sean!).
Will they fit? YES!
Is it hard? NO!
Are the SC seats heavy? Yes, so watch your back (as in your spine!!).
I've got '90 black leather with dual power, as in driver and passenger side, for the front and the fold-down rear in my '96 LX.
The front seats require that you simply remove the old seats (4 bolts each seat and two electrical connectors) and it's pretty straight forward. When you install the SC seats they will bolt right in. The wiring harness for the power to the seats is a minor issue of splicing the current pieces and putting them together. I found it to be easier to remove the plastic connector ends and tape the wires together (incase they have to come out for any reason). I'd like to make one STRONG recomendation - run power to the seats BEFORE you bolt them in to make sure that you hook it up right AND to check if you have any leaks in the vacuum lines and/or 'bladders'.
If you're planning on doing the rears as well then the only thing you have to worry about is getting the appropraite brace for the seat-back. The LX's use a Y-shaped part, whereas the SC's use two L-shaped parts on either side of the seat back (this leaves the center of the back open when folded down). Simply pop out your seat bottom, remove the bolts for the back, remove it and swap the brackets. "Installation is the reverse of removal".
Should take less than two hours to do the whole thing.
Your back will thank you for the swap in the long run!! That and leather is just......sexy - LOL!!
BTW - the only dumb questions are the ones you DON'T ask.
Let us know how it turns out, and/or if you need a hand.
Co-incidentally, the front seats in my car were the ones from JohnnyO's old car.:eek:

Thanks for all the help. I will be swapping them in a week or so(need to borrow a buddies garage). I called the guy back and asked him to take the braces out when he did the removal and to be very careful with all the hoses and wires.
I am sure some of you guys remember me from last year. Things have been a bit rough for a year, but here is hoping 2004 will be better.
The bird is running like a top..............booked for paint in May and I am looking for some good rims and tires for her????????????

Good luck with the swap.
Sorry to hear least year was rough.
Of course it's running like a top......it's a 4.6!;)
btw - I still have those 4.6 badges if you still want them.

I was wondering where you had disappeared to, hope this
year will be better for you.

I am still interested in the 4.6 badges.......The car is being repainted in May, and they would be a fine addition. And thanks for the welcome back guys................I am sure this year will be much better, and I hope to see you guys at a few meetings.
