E21 Recaros - 2x pass. seats one driver


Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

   I recently picked up three black leather e21 recaro seats.  One driver and two passenger seats.  Like usual, the driver seat is pretty wrecked, but the two passenger seats are in alright shape.  

What's involved with taking a passenger and turning it into a driver seat?  Just swapping over the side brackets?  Anyone know of a write-up?

Also, these seats are missing the plastics and the knobs. - Any place to source new ones?


Thank you,

I just reupholstered a pair for my 02. The seats disassemble via the hardware you see on the hinges. Few bolts and screws on each side is all that is holding the two sections together.


The vinyl itself is attached through hog rings and hooks. Undo those and the vinyl slips right off. The foam is interchangeable from left to right but you will have to cut the upper side bolster to accommodate the rear passenger seat release if you swap passenger side to the driver side.
