My seat parts arrive today, I need to figure out how to remove the fabric on the base of my fancy expensive seat so the pad thing can go in, and I'm really (really, REALLY) hoping that the folks at Corbeau didn't lie to me and that the brackets do in fact have mounting for the stock seatbelts.

I'm gonna disconnect the battery and do the passenger's side seat, then once it's in pull the car out of the garage and back it in so I can have space for fighting the driver's seat. I'm intimidated by the fabric removal process, but everything else seems like it should be pretty straightforward.

Let me know if you hit a snag. Should hopefully be pretty straight forward. An option is to just ball up the mat and stick it under the seat, believe this triggers the sensor to believe there is someone ALWAYS in the seat.. which could be annoying with the seatbelt warning. Though you could just buy a buckle insert off Ali.

Got some new VW OEM coils from EQT, $125 shipped is a deal.
I'm thinking about just buying them and leaving them on the shelf for a rainy day. After 74k, I don't have any ignition issues, but these have to be a wear item at some point.

If you made a rear insert would it be a Rosa parks?




I'll see myself out.
