Removing Your Existing Stock Seats
Start with your driver side first and locate the four bolts that hold
the seat in, two up front and two in back. Starting with the rear two
bolts remove the plastic covers over them and remove the bolts. Be
sure to recline the chair so it is in an upright position and the
weight is evenly distributed, so when you remove the front bolts of
the seat it won't fall on top of you causing injury.
After removing the front two bolts, gently lean the whole chair onto
it's back and undo all of the remaining connections to it by locating
the seat belt wire attached to the female end of the seat belt socket
(clip). You will also want to undo any electrical wires that were
connected to the original stock seat. The most convient way to remove
the seats is to roll it onto its side so it makes an "L" and swing the
seat out following with the back of the chair until it is completely
out of the car.
With the seat out of the car, look on the side where the seat belt
receiver is. There is a plastic cover that you'll need to remove with
a phillips screw driver, with one screw in front and one in back. With
it removed, you'll see a bolt attaching the seatbelt to the seat.
Remove this bolt (it's very long so keep twisting) Now that you have
the bolt off, put the plastic part back on using your phillips screw
|Installing Your New Aftermarket Racing Seats
Assemble your seat
brackets and sliders if they did not already come assembled. The pieces
are made to face in a specific direction so don't install them
backwards. Remember seat sliders have to face forward for your seat to
The aftermarket seat bracket will have
holes for the seat belt receiver, so screw it in.You may need to remove
some of the thick spacers so the seat will fit into your car, but do not
remove them if you have room for them.
Attach the aftermarket bracket to your race seat before placing it into
the car. Test fit and see if you like the height of the seat, adjust
accordingly if you can. Don't be surprised if your new seat brackets
that you ordered for your race seat do not fit the existing holes. This
is very common because these seats are made to fit several makes of
vehicles and not specifically to any one kind. Just make new ones after
the test fitting.
If you have a race harness (4 or 5 Point harness) now is the best time
to attach the belts.
Not every bracket is made the same. Attach the front bolts in loosely,
then try to put in the rears. Use a hammer if you have to so the bracket
holes will line up. Just be safe about it and don't damage the bracket.
Securely tighten all of the bolts to the car. If they are loose, you
could cause severe injury or even death to yourself. If you installed
sliders and you can not slide the seat freely, check how you assembled
it and reinstall it.
If you did a good job, do the same for the passenger side. If not, hire
