K12 driver seat renewal

#1
My 2003 micra K12 drivers seat is really worn by now. The cushioning under my butt has given in to my years of sitting on it.

The seat has a side airbag and height adjustment (K12 2003, S).

On eBay I bought a K12 2005, E drivers seat. No side airbag. No height adjuster. But that's OK.. As long as I can take the seat (the bit you sit on not the back) and swap it into the 2003 seat.

I started taking apart the 2005 seat and managed to unclip the seat cover hooks (most of them not all) and I realised that the foam appears to be glued in place onto the metal. So if I try to remove the foam I'm concerned I will damage it and render it unusable thereby defeating my objective. Are my eyes deceiving me? I wouldn't have thought it'd be glued in...

So in summary, I'm struggling and wondered if there is a better way to do this?

Thank you


(I checked eBay and no 2003 S K12 drivers seat for sale)

Would it not be more simple to go visit your local auto salvage yard. Where there will most likely be a micra k12 with the seat that fits your vehicle.
I need door cards and they seem to be rare.On ebay I cannot find a driver side door one that matches my trim. Have not yet visited an auto salvage yard but I know that they would have some. Helps to know how to remove the bit you need unless they already have removed the item.
