    Hi Guys,
    Would anyone know if its possible to retrofit a set of seats from a B7 to a B6.

    Issue I have is drive seat is not good and I'm looking at a set of set of B7 electric seats, my B6 are manual.

    Another concern would be would I end up with airbag issues or can they be coded to suit? along with seat actually fitting and if there's a loom for electrics.

    With any luck someone here has done this or knows if it can be done.

    Regards

    All the part codes for rail, seat base, etc look like they change as you go from B6 to B7, and similarly for Golf, Jetta, etc around that time. So I suspect not.

    Indeed. I tried to work if you'd be able to use old runners with new padded sections, etc by making a Frenken-seat but looks like not.

    Yes I believe they do fit and there are other threads on this forum dealing with installing B7 seats into a B6. Google also provides many sources of information for this swap.
