01/11/2004 13:40:41   Tom   Hi,

I am looking for new seats to replace my old ones as they are completely wrecked, they were open to the elements for about a year as the saab i now own had smashed windows! i have heard the saab 99 or 900 front seats will fit in if u swap the runners over. Is this true? can the backs one fit too? and if not what options are there? preferably cheap as am a student!

Many thanks

They are from a 95, so the rear seats are not the same as a 96.
I too have heard that 99 seats will fit, but never tried it.

late 96's were fitted with the high back 99 seats so they will fit, that said probably most front seats if you get the runners will go in without that much bother.

I am fairly certain nothing will fit straight into the back of a 96 without a fair bit of fabrication/upholstery work.

02/11/2004 12:45:09   chris reid   i have just fitted the front and back seats out of a 900turbo in to my 96. the front ones went straight in, the rails are the same width so dead simple.
the back seats i had to unstitch cut and stitch up again, it only took me half a day and they look great!

Thanks for the help

25 cheap enough ?
Also got a digicamera and an upholosterer's bill
