Front seat magazine holders
« on: 13 August 2019, 20:27:51 »

Hello people, I haven't been on here for quite a while as I have been working on recommissioning my Carlton, but I have now finally found a nice interior for my 2.0 8v Omega estate. I have a (hopefully) simple question  :)

My estate is a 97 car and I've bought  a grey leather interior from a 98 Elite. I also found matching front seats from a 97 saloon, I guess the experts among you will know the 97 doesn't have side airbags and the 98 does, as well as the rear-mounted hard plastic magazine holders with black elasticated retainers.

Basically, the 97 front seats are going in with the rest of the 98 interior, but the 97 fronts have the stretchy vinyl magazine holders that are broken and split. Can I remove the entire hard back panels from the 98 seats to replace the 97 ones?

By the way, if anyone needs an excellent black leather saloon interior (seats & door cards) for a 97 saloon let me know.

Thanks in advance - ChrisP.

I believe that they can simply be swapped over :y

They being the panels rather than the seats themselves ;)

You may have to swap the seatbelt pretensioners over as well.

Nah :y as I read it, he's using the correct '97 airbag free seats with the rear panel from the also acquired ' 98 airbag seats :y
