Front seats swap left to right? Possible?
So looking at my 147; just turned 15 last month she did,
The front seats, when the driver gets in and out, the very sporty seats wear more on the edge closest to the door in terms of 'cushion perkiness' as it were- as you get in and out...
If you look at the inner edge and the foam is more shapely etc.
Now of course the seats left to right are different - the lever for the top bit and the drivers use more adjustable for height and lumbar support etc.
However the actual bit one sits on-
Are they symmetrical?
From a manufacturing point of view you'd think so...
It seems like four bolts hold the seat padding to the slidy rails base.
Of course there's wiring for the heated seats
(Warning may trigger airbag warning light here so even before looking at it disconnect the battery and let the car rest for at least 30mins so the airbag firing capacitors de-charge or the mother of all problems will ensue)
but I thought maybe just undoing these four bolts underneath could mean a simple swap over meaning that the driver gets a nice perkier seat...
The bolts are the star shaped ones 'Tork screws' is it?
However I can't shift them!
They just won't undo and has got me wondering if there are bolts opposite but I can't figure out how they'd be assembled as the cushioning is there.
Anyone got any clues
(Apart from 'it's a sign just to leave it well alone!!!)
Maybe there's some glue or super strong thread lock in there as I've already half burred one of them already.
Any suggestions welcome!!!
