Third party seats - occupancy sensor passenger seat

Post by Chris22091966 » Thu Jun 22, 2017 9:04 am

Hi folks, I guess this has been touched upon before. I'm fitting some Corbeau RRS seats to my 2007 facelift z4. Do I need one of the adapters to take the place of the seat occupancy sensor, if so could somebody recommend one? I see there are various types on e bay. Secondly anyone have any idea which wires on the underseat connector relate to the heated seat function - as my new seats have that capability.

Many thanks for your assistance.

Here's hoping the sun comes back soon, so I can get the roof down again : )

Great timing. I am also about to fit Corbeau Revolution seat to my E86. Similar thoughts on what to do re occupancy sensors, any airbag lights that might come on following the replacement of the M sport seat. ATM I am only swapping the driver seat to make sure I get it all right and I am happy with the seat.

Ok - you don't need to worry about an occupancy sensor for the drive's side. I used a Planted technology floor bracket and bought independent runners off Amazon. I did get some supplied by Corbeau, in fact TW sets, both of which weren't long enough.

here is the link to the ones I bought off Amazonia:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00 ... UTF8&psc=1

These sliders were perfect.

All questions just pm me.

Regards

Chris

Thanks Chris for the info

I have bought
Corbeau Revolution XL Seat

VAC Floor Mounts

Sparco Side Mounts

Sparco Seat Runner Kit
http://www.demon-tweeks.co.uk/top-100/p ... r-kit-each

I am hoping that combination will fit?
I know the floor mounts are good as many other have used them.
Then the seat runners attach to the floor mounts. No idea on the length compared to the ones you linked.
Then the side mounts to the seats.
