    5dr seat 3dr car :(

    I have the chance to get full leather seats from an estate and I far as I have read they should be a straight swap. I have a 3 door so I need the tilt mechanism so was wonder can I remove this mechanism from my old seat and fit it to the new one? Or can I remove the leather and padding from the old one and fit that to my old one?

    And finally has anyone picked up seats recently. What is a fair price?

    Thanks Craig

    between £200 and £300 for leather seats for the car.
    i dont think that moving the mechanism would be easy, but if they are the same shape seats then swapping the covers wouldn't be too difficult... or you could wait for a 3door set to appear, they always do eventually.

    Provided the seat shape is the same you will need to swap the covers/foam accross & keep your 3Dr frames.

    when you are talking about the seats being the same do you mean the frame underneath? i have basic envoy spec seats. The leather seats are more plush and have bigger side support but i though that would just be foam and not a different metal frame?

    There are different part numbers listed for the bases & rear frames, between the Sports & Non-Sports seats.
