    Default Prefacelift SRi Interior in to a LS Vec?

    Evening all

    I have a friend at work with a prefacelift LS Vec.

    His interior is shot and I just by chance have a spare full prefacelift Sri interior. Front and back seats with bolsters and all door cards plus centre console. Was going to keep them as spares for mine but my plans have changed now.

    Can I ask is it a straight swap or will I be leading my self into a heap of problems if I start this.

    Thank you

    Easy straight swap bud. Not sure though if you need to disconnect the battery before disconnecting the front seats due to the air bags/light.

    Yes disconnect the battery for about 15mins before playing with them. The airbags and or pre tensioners may go off

    As long as the sri it came from is the same shape as the one it's going in you'll be fine i.e hatch estate

    Thank you John thats very helpfull.

    Its HB to HB so all the same size in theory. The front drivers seat is missing its pre tensioner which I was going to swap over from the front one his current drivers seat has.

    I was going to do more investigtion into this before I start but any advice is more than welcome.

    Thanks

    Envy - I have in fact done this swap my very self, and I'm only up the road from you!

    I have an LS Vec with the NASTY grey/blue interior so bought an Sri interior complete with door cards and fitted the lot in a few hours (did the back seat in the dark, then next morning the fronts). I also had to swap my front pre-tensioners over as the Sri set had been triggered.

    Follow the how2 like I did and you won't go wrong, I think the front runners are on with a T50 torx bit, back seat is three standard nuts. The door cards are more of a pain but still follow the how2's on here.

    If you need any tips give me a shout!
