156 1.9 JTD 16V

156 leather swap

Hi i'm new to the forum so I do apologise if this topic has been done to death. I own a 156 1.9 Jtd facelift model 04, im looking to fit red leather from a 01 pre facelift model. Now I have heard various things but no one seems to have a set method to do this.

The seats to my knowledge do not have the side mounted airbags like mine, will I need a kit to "trick" the airbag ecu? If so where do I get one from?

Do I need to disconnect the battery?

Any help on this would be appreciated

Yes disconnect the batery before messing with any airbags - I've read of a resistor being fitted to fool the ECU, but have no details sorry
