    Replace Driver's Seat, Airbag, Shoulder Belt

    I was in an altercation yesterday that resulting in the seat-mounted airbag deploying. I'd like some advice on replacing the seat, and maybe the shoulder belt as well.

    Basically once the bag deployed, some of the stitching is loose, so I figure I may as well replace the entire seat. Color matching is important but not vital.

    I've looked around on eBay, I've seen seats as low as $140 but now I see things more like $250-$300.

    The seatbelt is unrelated but was already a bit frayed, and I think my mechanic said that to replace that, they'd have to re-do the seat or airbag anyway, so I'm thinking, "may as well" while we're at it.

    Thanks Digger!
    I visited my mechanic today and he's got some seats w/memory, which isn't what I have.
    We agreed that while he checks to see if those can go in, I'm going to hunt junkyards as well. Now I know where the trim value is labeled (K22).

    If i have the linear trim, I don't have ventilated seats, right? Mine are heated and electrically adjusted, but no air blowing and no memory.

    You can add memory seats to the car, it does require a program change and clearing the airbag fault will also require programing, so if you have all the parts for the seats no extra work to add.
