Will 2009 G8 Back Seat Fit in a 2013 Caprice PPV?

Post by NovaPPV » Fri Oct 19, 2018 8:14 pm

Found a deal for $100, wondering it it'll fit.

He's also selling the front seats, too. But I've read on here it's a giant pain to swap those out.

Thanks everybody, be easy on me if this has already been asked...I couldn't find a solid answer.

YES , searching will help for it

the G8 has a folding section and you need all the parts for the folding section , and the fronts are a fairly easy swap , you change the airbag connector end from what i remember

Awesome. Thanks for the info.

Just installed the backseat, no issues. All I'm missing is the piece at the top of the middle folding section that keeps it locked.

For the front seats, it's an easy swap?

I read this post by "Wigid" https://www.newcaprice.com/forum/viewto ... f=20&t=921" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; that says it's a giant pain.

Myabe I'm reading that wrong.

Thanks for the help!

What Wigid did was swap out the seat base for a G8 one that has power front and back. THis way he would have the best of power options. Power recline and power front and back. If you just swap out G8 seats for the PPV ones you will loose power recline but gain power front and back. That's why that thread seems so complicated because what he did was a lot of work (but totally worth it!!). BUt just swapping the whole seats out is not that big a deal (save for the wiring issues).

I love this community. Thanks Steve Walker, I read that post I listed incorrectly. I appreciate you taking the time to point that out to me.

Also, does anyone have a part number for the Rear Seat Locking Release on the rear center fold down part?

Thanks!
