Replacement seats

Hi guys, my first post on this forum. I would like to know if a set of leather seats from a 156 2.0TS X reg' would be a straight swap into a '02 156 2.0 JTS. Will there be any dramas with the airback/occupancy sensor wiring etc. Hoping someone can help me out on this one.

Not really sure, has either of the seats got side airbags installed? I would think this would be a problem. As for the other point, sorry, dont really know!

Hi David
Not sure. Depends on the airbags. Are the old ones particularly comfy?? Most people put newer stuff in, not older!!
I would try asking at a dealer, but do be careful with the airbags as they are nasty things, and can go off unexpectedly!!

Welcome to AO by the way!

Let me guess, you want to put the old seats in because of the embroided AR logo on the seats.

The seats should be a straight fit, but the really old seats don't have airbags in them. You need to find the late 2001 models just before the minor change, these have side airbags, I think.
