Replacing electric seats
Iím having trouble with the electric motor in the driverís seat and I was thinking of scrapping the whole two front seats and replacing them with manual adjust ones from a GLS, which Iíd get upholstered in leather Ė the existing ones needs reupholstering anyway.

Does anyone know if the seats from a GLS NP (or maybe NM etc) will bolt straight into the NP Exceed.

I don't know how much the seats change from the NP to the NS, but I love the amount of control on the electric drivers seat, the only thing I find with the NS seats is they were made too wide and not figure hugging like the gen2 seats.

Yeah, the electric seats are great, except that when the electric motor stuffs up you canít move them forward or back Ė thus, the wife canít drive the vehicle as the seat is too far back. Iíve had a chap fix the motor before but he said it is a bugger of a thing Ė very flimsy and difficulty to work on. To get a new one, you have to buy a whole seat frame from MM and that costs more than the vehicle is worth !!

My previous vehicle was a GLS and I had no issues with the seats in it, hence I thought Iíd fix the problem once and for all and replace the seats with manual ones. $165 for a pair of GLS seats and around $1,800 to upholster them in leather Ė the old ones need reupholstering anyway, so as far as I can see, this is the best option.

Just about everyone Iíve spoken to said they canít see MM changing the floor pattern for the different type of seat, so I reckon I should be good to go.
