Driver’s seat swap...?
Acknowledging there are subtle but distinct differences within the 1st Generation group as far as connectors, etc are concerned (as an example, I know the clock/radio/temp LCD panel that has issues in a lot of 2004-2005 cars (including mine) can’t be directly swapped with one from 2006-2008 because they rewired the connector from 16 to 10 pins), is it possible to direct swap a driver’s seat from a 2008 6s Sport 5 door into my 2004 6s wagon?
My seat has 3 issues, the right side bolster on the back of the seat is rolled over to the point that side of the seat is basically flat. The lumbar support doesn’t work and almost worst of all, the seat heater feels like it’s burning a hole in the back of my left thigh; not an especially pleasant experience.
I know someone who has a 2008 hatchback that he’s about to scrap and he’s open to ‘trading’ seats. I know the mounts will match, my concern is the electrical - motors, seat heaters & airbags.
Any thoughts are most appreciated.
