I was going to do the same thing but not vinyl , just something red. I think you have to take off your door panel and from there you should be able to see how it comes off. That is what I was going to do.

If you take the door panel off, you can see how it attatches from the back.

On a side note, let me know if you do remove the carpet. I think my seat covers are from a 97 GT. Do they match the ones in this picture?

Yeah, the '97s have kind of a more solid tone center section, rather than the kinda random pattern on the later seats. I actually have the full '99 interior from my totalled '99 (RIP) in my '97, so I got to see the different patterns side-by-side.

On a related subject, does anyone have some bubbles forming in that carpet insert? I'm sure it's just the adhesive coming unglued after a few years (including a couple months rather exposed to the elements in the junkyard ), and it's only in a couple spots, so it's not a huge deal. But if anyone has any clever ideas on how to fix that I'd appreciate it.

Thanks,
Pat Olsen

Yeah Pat that bubbling is happening to my car too. That is why I want to take it out and put something red in its place

Monovich, do the seats in your 98 look like the picture?

I wish I still knew what year these were from... can't find the email any more, but I'm itchin' to repace the hideous light grey in the doors.

Default how to

if you take the door panel out there will be little clips that you have to bend but do it carefully so that it doesn t brake they are very easy to break. so all you have to do is bend them and they will come right out and you can wrap them in what ever you want

My seats look exactly like those, but my door inserts are a darker color, I think it is the color of the outer seat material, but I'd have to go look in the car to be sure.

Cool, let me know if you want to get rid of them after you put in the leather.

Monovich,

Leather seat kit for a legacy??? Okay, I'm interested! Tell me about it -I have a 2001 GT and I wish I had bought the Limited just because of the leather. How much does this cost? What does it include?

I think I may *need* this upgrade.

Thanks for your time,

Chris

There is a group buy going on right now in the Private Classifieds. We are buying from leatherseats.com and there are 22 of us. The group buy is still open. It cost me $850 and I got a pretty sweet setup. I'll post pics when I recieve it and get it installed (I'm going to install it myself). Saved about $300 because of the group-buy.

It is totally customisable. My kit included leather front and rear seats with suede center inserts and suede door inserts. I also got the STi logo embroidered in the seat fronts in a dark grey color. Should look nice and subtle.

Yeah, my door inserts are bubbling too. My guess on how to fix them is to remove the panel, carefully peel the fabric off, and use 3M auto fabric adhesive to put them back. 3M sells the stuff for fixing headliners and glued-down carpet panels. I think it's "3M GENERAL TRIM ADHESIVE #08080". You may be able to get it from GM if you can't find it at a parts store.

Regarding removing the insert, if you take off the door panel there are about a dozen screws that hold the insert in place. Remove them and the rest should be fairly obvious.
