    I have seen a few people lately asking how to do this. This is absolutely as easy as can be, even for the novice. Extra care MUST be taken when removing the old and putting in the new seats so as not to scratch/gouge the console and door sills, and the 04s are noticeably heavier than the SN95s. The passenger side is a straight swap. The rears are self explanatory, except for the fact that I had to swap out seat back frames to get the seat frame to screw in and latch without modification. There is only one bolt and a dowel holding each seat back to the frame. And make sure you dont break the plastic retainers when removing the bottom of the rear seats, these were the hardest part of the entire deal. Follow these instructions and EVERY FUCTION WILL WORK!!!


    ON THE DRIVER SEAT -
    1. Remove the factory connector from the '03/04 cobra seats.
    2. Connect both GREEN wires together.
    3. Connect a crimp connector to the BLACK wire.
    4. Connect a crimp wire to the BLUE wire.

    IN THE CAR -
    1. Remove the factory connector from the seat power harness.
    2. Connect a crimp connector to the BLUE wire (+12 volts).
    3. Locate the BLACK wire (GROUND), but DON'T Crimp YET!
    4. Remove the factory seatbelt attachment from the car floor.
    5. Disassemble the seatbelt and cut the 2 wires that connect under the console.
    6. Check with a digital meter for continuity. One wire will have continuity to GROUND. Connect this to the BLACK wire and crimp.
    7. The other wire from the seatbelt will need a crimp connector.

    FINAL INSTALL -
    1. Connect the 2 Black GROUND wires from the car to the BLACK wire on the seat.
    2. Connect the BLUE wire from the car to the GREEN wires on the seat.
    3. Connect the seatbelt BLACK wire to the BLUE wire from the seat.
    4. Finish bolting in the seat.

    If you change the rears, you may have to swap the seats onto the 98 back frame, I did.

    these murfs were WAY heavier than the 97 leathers that came out of the car. Well the pass side was not too much, but the driver's seat was heavy

    Just FYI, I didnt have to do anything to get the 03 rears to fit in my 95, bolted right up and work fine.

    I've helped 2 others do it to their cars since I posted the how to, they have both worked no problems. Maybe you missed a step or have a bad connection:shrug:
