Can I swap the backs of seats round?

Recommended Posts

I have the manual, non heated alcantara trim in my e46 saloon. Drivers bolster is ripped. If I can buy a passenger seat that is unripped, can I just swap the back rest part of the seat over, or can I just swap the bases/rails out?

Yes, you can. Remove current seat back and base from the frame/rail and fit the new ones on. You could just swap the covers but it's not much more work to do the entire thing.

Another option... have you spoken to a seat upholsterer? Sometimes they can work wonders.

Yeah, I think I will just get my felt tip pen out and colour in the rip lol

Haha. Honestly, it looks more difficult than it is. Once you've unbolted the seat and flip it over, you'll realise it's fairly simple.
