PostPosted: Tue Feb 19, 2013 9:41 pm    Post subject:  leather seat swap questions Reply with quote

I own a 2004 impala ls and I am wanting to change my cloth interior into the leather interior. I am just wondering are the seats just interchangeable or is there any wiring that needs too be done.

Thank you:

Mark

Seats will be inter-changeable as long as you match yours. So if you have power drivers and the new seats have power driver and power pass, the power pass won't work unless you wire it in, etc., but they will all physically fit

If the seats are heated (note that leather was available without heating), then the switch is on the seat itself.

also if the new seats come with the seat heaters they will work with no additional wiring needed. did my swap about 5yrs ago. i also switched out my column shifter for the floor shifter.

The switches are all on the seats themselves. The seat rails etc. are the same, and (pretty sure) the wiring connectors are always installed under the seats/carpet regardless of trim level or original seating choice.

Should be plug and play, just stick with Impala seats for the most straightforward swap.

Didn't wanna start a new thread for this question; But what exactly are the options center console wise for switching the bench seats out for the buckets? I've already ruled out moving the shifter to the floor. So I was leaning towards putting one of those 9c1 console things in. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with them or any pictures. The only setback with them is that I don't have the "crush-bar" that 9c1's have.

Why dont you want to convert to console-shift? Its not that hard of a swap.

You can also swap in the console itself, but without the shifter. But you will need the base of the shifter since the console mounts to it (you can cut off the rest of the shifter assembly and shift lever).

Nope. All Impalas have the same body wiring, so all the wiring and plugs for power seats and heating are already there. If you had un-powered pass seat, the plug was left under the carpet and just needs to be pulled up through the carpet and plugged in.
