    WS6 seats in a Firebird...

    I picked up some really good looking leather seats from a buddy of mine (for free!!). I want to put them in my bird. Thing is....my seats on non-powered....and these are powered w/lumbar support. If I'm not mistaken, I think my car has a wiring harness already in place for the new powered seats, except dude I got them from cut the damn wires and kept the harness......otherwise I would just do that. Can the seats themselves be removed from the rails? Or will I have to replace seats and rails and order wiring harness? I've researched quite a bit but can't come up with anything definitve. I'm concerned that I won't be able to adjust the power seats without the wiring being hooked up. Any ideas?

    Thank you.

    Disregard. I found my answer on the other forum.

    No I don't Jeff...sorry. But I found out that the wiring harness for the seats is under the carpet. Makes sense that the wiring would be there, even if the car didn't come with powered seats. Now all I gotta do is find the wiring harness since the guy I got them from cut it off. I'll find one on CL or something....unless it's as simple as matching up the colored wires. Then I could just use splices to connect everything up. I'm gonna pull the seats this weekend when I have some time and figure it out.

    Should be able to splice it -- since the controls and motors are integral to the seats it shouldn't be more than a couple of wires. I have schematics for '02 if you think they would help. May want to install quick disconnects in case of a future issue - it's all hidden so no worries about what it looks like under there.

    Good idea on the disconnects. I'll pull the seats out this weekend and see what it looks like. Can't imagine it being too hard. I'll let you know if I run into any snags. Thanks.
