Default 04-06 interior parts fit 02 WRX

Does anyone know if interior parts (seats front and back, door panels, carpet) from an 04, 05 and 06 WRX sedan fit an 02 WRX sedan?

Thanks,

The issue you are going to have with seats is the passenger detection system in the newer models (I believe it is the 06 and 07s) which without modification means you lose your passenger side impact air bag. No issue with the rear seats at all.

Carpet is a straight swap.

For the door panels (05+), you will need switches (including moving the mirror controls to the driver door) and the brackets that go on the door.

All of the pillars, the rear deck, and headliner are interchangeable.

This should not be an issue at all if he is installing the seats into an 02. The side airbag plugs are still there in the newer seats.

Yes, the side impact airbags are in the 02 seats and there is a harness connection in your car that is compatible with the newer seats. What your car doesn't have is a harness connection for the passenger detection system which is in the newer seats (which determines whether or not the passenger airbags are needed in a crash).

I know all about the passenger detection system and how it works. I tested and reverse engineered the system before I wrote the tutorial on how to swap it out.
Thread- 06/07 passenger detection system swap

His vehicle is an 02, he can install any 02-07 USDM seat and it will work just fine. There is no need to remove or swap the airbag bladder or rest of the passenger detection system.

^ I wasn't challenging your knowledge, it was just that your previous answer addressed the airbag connection (which is not an issue) not the passenger detection system which apparently is a none issue too (I stand corrected).
