    I have!

    Its not too hard but go carful when taking the back seats out, the bolts have thread lock on them. Best to loosen them a little, then tighten, then loosen again.

    I (well, Simon P) managed to mangle up the head of one of the screws and it was a right bitch to get out after that!

    ah-ha. I didnt have airbags in my original seats or the ones I was replacing them with. I still unplugged the battery though as there was a plug underneath each of the seats. I think it was for the seatbelt pre-tensioners. And if you have airbags deffo unplug it!

    You'll find that unplugging the battery will make the alarm go off so what you need to do is turn the ignition on (but dont start the car) then turn it off and unplug the terminals within 15 seconds. (or something!)

    best to disconect the battery first tony just in case, leave it for 5 mins and then unclip all the connections under the seat. Push the seat as far foward as possible and undo the bolts on the back of the rails. Then then slide off easy enough.

    The rears are a pain to do as the belts go through some interior side trims. Easy enough if you take your time though
