My Fiero is all covered up for a long winter nap.
I am looking to replace one of the seats, I know there are a few good ones at the junkyard. I plan on picking one up from there soon before the snow destroys it. I would install it into my car in the summer.

My question is regarding the seats. What size wrench is needed to take out the seats? and is there a real difference between the drivers and passangers seats? besides the speaker plug on opposite sides.

Thanks a lot
Andy

You'll need a 15mm wrench or socket. I find that a gear wrench works excellently to temove those nuts.

The seat covers are interchangeable side to side, backs and bottoms both.
The actual foam seats with no skin cover, the seat bottoms are interchangable but the threaded clip for the center pivot point must change sides and the holes for the outside mechanical attachment point holes are there but need the foam removed.
Speaker seats are foung in the 84 & 85 years only. Does that help?

I believe that's a 13mm socket size, just of the top of my head....correct me if I'm wrong.
The seat Drivers/Passengers are different
the reclining handle is on the outside of ea. seat for one thing...

10-4 on the 13mm. I take mine out once a week to do a little more work on the stereo. Mine is an '84 but I don't believe that will make any difference

I got a nice Craftsman 13mm ratcheting wrench at Sears; it has the angled head on it. Made for 100% easy access to all 4 bolts.
