Gen 4 to Gen 4 Leather interior swap

Postby mastro9618 » Thu Apr 23, 2015 10:22 pm

It may seem like an obvious question but...
would it be possible to swap the leather interior (front and rear seats) from a 3.0Hr Gen 4 6 speed manual to a 2.5 5 speed Manual???
The only reason i ask is the drivers seat is electric so how would i go about making it work in the 2.5

Let me know fellow Subby nuts!

See if you have the power seat connector under the carpet below that seat, some say it is there.

I guess it will work coz I have a 2.5i liberty and it has a full leather interior, that includes an electric seat for the driver. The 3.0 and GT has the same interior trim.

Sorry to dig up this post.
Did you ever go ahead with the swap?
I only have 3 connectors under the seat, i'm guessing for airbag and passenger presence.
I've searching the forum. Still not sure if it is a straight swap for a 2007 2.5i gen4.

I found this post, but it confused the hell out of me:

Yes, prefl into prefl is a straight swap.
Prefl into post is almost a straight swap, the power plugs need to be depinned and swapped.
Post into pre may require some messing about with the handbrake lockout circuit so that seat memory is locked out in motion.
I know of a complete good cond prefl sedan interior FS, with wagon rear seat option.
Let me know if interested :)

Hi
With help of good info on this forum i recently did this for MYO8 2.5i sedan without too many difficulties.
Leather interior came from another Post FL Liberty from Sydney wreckers
New install included electric drivers seat - plugged straight into two pin square black plug already present under old seat - no extra wiring required at all -phew!
Very pleased with result.

I did this swap, however, only the drivers side had the black 2 pin connector for the electric seats. Not sure what to do about the passenger.

Old thread I know but never hurts to ask

Thinking about doing the same interior swap in my '08 2.5i sedan. How much should I be paying for a leather interior (including door cards)?

Cheers

I paid $250 for a set of 04 3.0RB seats. I was told by a Subaru wrecker on the Gold Coast he sells his sets for $400-$500.
I am yet to get doorcards/centre console lid.
I wouldn't pay anything more than $500 for the whole seats/cards/console lid
