Swapping seats with airbags

2010 Silverado seat swap

Swapping seats with airbags

Postby Wicked Silver [OP] » Jan 24 2020, 4:26am

I want to swap my drivers seat because the bottom portion is ripped from coming in and out of the truck. I was wondering if I can just get a used seat from another truck and swap it over without doing anything special? Or is there any specific parts that need to be swapped ? Do I need to swap the airbag? It’s a 2010 Silverado LT.

If you swap an entire seat...it needs to be a 2010-13 due to the side curtain airbag that is in the seat itself. It was not on the 2009 or earlier models. The bottom seat cushions come out super easy. There is only the cover fabric that is wrapped around the bottom and held with velcro that holds it on there. Some wires to unplug if you have heated seats. It is easier to mess with if you pop the entire seat out...just 4 bolts. The airbag portion is on the seat back so if you are only doing the bottom that is all you really need. You can buy just the seat bottom foam. But if that is in tact...just swapping the cover is super easy also. I purchased a full set of the cloth take offs from a leather shop to refresh my dirty ones not long after I bought the truck.

Depending on condition I would rather swap the entire seat over. Is the airbag tied into the ECU OR BCM?

Not as far as needing programming.
