Hello all,
Going to have a local Katzkin dealer install seatcovers for my Scat.

It costs less (and I would feel better) to just bring them my front seats.

The seats have heating and ventilation, how hard is it to get them out?

Thanks for your time,

Choose 2018 Dodge Challenger (2019 not listed yet, it's the same)

Repair

Body> Interior> Seats> Seat, Front> Seat, Front> Removal

976863


It's basically what's in the picture ;) Disconnect the battery first, and don't reconnect until everything is reconnected (Airbags don't ya know)

(4 ) bolts. (E12) U need an E12 socket. Piece of cake. (2) electrical plugs you undo. I pull my passenger seat every time I drag race. I have never disconnected the battery and have zero issues in my Scat.

Did you get the cloth interior and pics when you get the Catsklnz.
I am probably going this route also.
Aftermarket stereo also.

Surely you get an airbag warning with the seat out? Once you reconnect it, it just goes away? Since he's just getting the seats done, and not wanting to drive it with them disconnected, it would seem easiest to disconnect the battery until it's all back together, but if no issue resetting ABS, etc. I suppose it's not mandatory. I'd do it anyway, Airbags would scare me, lol

You are definitely correct Guy. I do get an air bag light that is temporary until I reinstall the seat. No scanner is needed to remove the light. For me...this is not an operational issue.

Sine he cannot drive it with no seats....disconnecting the Battery seems overkill. But you are correct....for maximum safety....disconnect the battery.

The reason I do not disconnect it.....a good friend of mine is a Master Dodge Tech for 25 years now. I consulted with him before I removed it the first time.....and he reassured me they NEVER disconnect the battery removing and reinstalling the seats during maintenance procedures. Since then...I have removed / reinstalled 5 or 6 times with no issues. But...thanks for the clarification Guy :)
