Seat removal
« on: March 24, 2019, 10:01:58 PM »
Hi all. Been a while since I've posted...its been almost 3 years since I've run my phase 2! The plan is to get it road worthy next month. Among the long list of jobs is repairing the driver's seat. The outer seams on the backrest have come undone an there's a bit of a tear in the leather. Now I was thinking I'd get the whole seat out and take it to be re-trimmed. However I've got some concerns about whether the seat has an airbag. As I said the otter seam (where I assume the airbag would be) is open and it doesn't appear to have one. But then there is an airbag sticker on the base of the seat suggesting there's one fitted. Does anyone know what's true and how I need to go about getting the seat out?

I did this on 2 phase 2's and a phase 3. The phase 3 definitely has side airbags in the seats and they are attached to the seat belt stalks and can be removed as one unit once the side cover at the bottom is removed.

the phase 2 will depend on year I think. If it has a passenger airbag on the dash instead of the second glove box then most likely yes.

removing the seats is easy enough albeit a buit fiddly to get at one particular torx screw.

DISCONNECT BATTERY nad leave for a good hour to make sure airbag does not deploy.
Move seat all the way forward and remove 2 rear torx screws.
move seat all the way back and remove outer front torx screw.

then renew your patience and maybe use a flexible adaptor to torx bit because the inside front is impossible to get at straight on.

it will happen but just take your time.

Once you have all removed I just lean seat in toward middle of car and then unclipo the 2 (if no airbag) or 3 ( if airbag) connectors. should be an Orange a red and a white. on drivers side if airbag and just red and white if no airbag. passenger side always has one less.

good luck. there is a really good full black leather interior in Queensland Australia but i figure you are in UK.
