    Default remove driver side seat base - 2003 Suburban

    I purchased a new seat cover for the worn drivers side seat base. It looks pretty straight forward to remove the seat base - remove 2 nuts at the front edge and slide the seat base forward. The seat back has a side air bag. Is there any risk of setting off the air bag? There are two elctrical connectors under the seat that are attached to the seat base - a light blue one and a second (gray?) connector.

    thanks for any help you can provide.

    Default removing driver seat

    I found the answer at the vendor site - www.theseatshop.com. There is a very detailed video there that explains how to remove the seat and replace the leather. The new driver seat bottom is an exact match with the original. Nice product.

    Follow up with a post and some pictures after you get it done.
    It has been awhile since I installed the new leather cover for seat base. As mentioned, I purchased the new cover from the Seat Shop (on ebay). I have no affiliation to the company, but my one shopping experience was very positive. Here are a couple before and after shots of the new seat cover. The installation was pretty straight forward with video instructions supplied by the Seat Shop.
