    Should be the same on most GM's of that era. When I converted my 98's manual seat to a power seat from a 99 Burb, it was the same connector and everything worked ok.

    Found a set of seats from a 2006 Pontiac G6 Gt. Anyone know if they will bolt up to my risers without modification. Thanks

    There really is no way to put different seats in any vehicle without some fab. Unless it came from the same model, thats the only time itll be a bolt in situation

    I believe GM changed their seat mounting design after 2000 for most vehicles, but I could be wrong.

    I just scored a set of bucket seats out of a 97 Bonneville. Got them good and clean and next step is to dye them. My interior is grey and my buckets are tan. My question is can you put the passenger side bucket set in the drivers location and vise versa. The driver bucket has a little wear, but no tears in the cloth. Was going to do this to for less wear on the driver seat.
    thanks, David

    Are they power seats or manual? The control panel on most GM power seats is on the door side of the seat, so if you swap sides it'll be on the wrong side to go to easily to use(i.e. facing the console). If they are manual seats (no power adjustment) it could probably be done. A lot depends on where the adjustment handle, lever, etc. is.... good luck

    The recline lever would be on the wrong side, powered or not.
