Technical Seat padding replacement

Jul 28, 2018
Hi guys, my driver side seat bottom part has seen better days - I found a pile of foam under it and I can feel the metal wires inside.
I got an idea - take a padding from passenger seat (they are usually less worn) and put it there. Only issue I see, they have different numbers in ePER. So I wanted to ask if somebody done this? Does it fit the driver seat?
In the picture it look symetrical.

Does your vehicle have Airbags and seat sensors, if so be very careful not to affect that, as the sensor is secured up through the underside of the foam.
I had to strip my daughters passenger seat to fit a sensor on her 2012 Punto Evo as many error codes displayed, after which I needed "proxi alignment" etc.
Once battery disconnected, airbag wiring etc to seat undone (after letting safe interval for discharge of airbag mechanism), unbolt seat from car, then just a case of flipping it over on a dustbin or similar and undoing the retaining clips detaching seat sensor carefully, fitting new foam and reassemble.:)
