Front Seat Conversion

Post by nate12387 » Tue Sep 24, 2019 7:25 pm

Hi Guys,

Would would it take to remove the front driver and passenger seat from an SHO and install it into an interceptor? I know there was a thread in this issue however I can't find it anymore. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Nathan

There are some differences across the years (passenger seat weight sensor, etc) so it's best to try to find donors from the same year just to be safe.

Passenger side may be plug and play. Driver side out of a SHO is likely a memory seat and you'll have to bypass the memory module and plug wiring directly into the seat switch. I can provide a picture of the rewired seat switch so you can see the wiring alignment (at least from my year). A general understanding of electronics is necessary; you should be prepared to unpin/repin connectors, salvage wiring from PIS seat and rerun in the SHO, etc.

Also, if the SHO seats are from a wreck, your seat belt pretensioners are probably blown and you'll need to get new ones (or leave the pillar based pretensioners in the PIS and swap over the PIS buckles/disable the SHO buckle pretensioners)
