  • Vader seat cushions

    So I bought some vader seat cushions thinking I could transfer them to my current seats. little did I know that there’s a difference in frames from pre 09/95 and post 09/95 (correct me if I’m wrong). Turns out the cushions I bought were from a pre car. Does anyone know if I’m still able to swap these cushions onto my post seat frames? Or is it a lost cause. thank you

    The early style vaders are no bueno. Get the correct foams for your frames.

        They are uglier and the lack of the metal frame support under the foams allows the foam to roll over and "cankle" quite easily.

          The early style frames suck hard.

          just check the diagram on them in the etk.

          No support at all.

          ps, the changeover was 9/94.

            fair enough. Really wish I knew all this before I bought the cushions 😂

              From the outside the way to check instantaneously of you're looking at later or newer type: the earlier type have the backrest leather going over the back cover, while the later seats have the rear cover going over the leather.

              Other details: older frames have no symbols on the manual adjustment handles. Different style handle for backrest tilt. The trimpiece on top of the backrest where the headrest supports are inserted are a vent-grill rectangle on the older seats, two seperate round pieces on the later model.

              Old vaders have flat headrests, the later type a round headrest (although these could be swapped).
