Essentially you take the seats out of the car (4 bolts and 1 plug either side)
Then using a socket from the top unbolt the seat from the rail. (4 nuts)
Then you will see the mounting brackets are spot welded onto the rail. Remove them (drill, cut, twist, hammer.)
[optional step - take approx 1inch of the silver inner slider rail. Put it vertically in a device when you cut it with the 1” section at the top. Once cut then use some tape around the edge to stop ball bearings from falling out. Refit to rail]
Hi, i bought this kit to lower my NC seats as i don’t fit with the roof up and a helmet on…
The seats are the type with adjustable height, my question is about the procedure to remove them from the car. Do i need to disconnect power from the battery or not? I don’t really think they have any airbags in them and there should be a plug to disconnect the heating element. Anyway just wanted to ask whether there is anything i need to be aware of before i start taking stuff out, drilling & cutting?
If you have a 1.8 then you probably don’t have seat airbags, some of the 2.0 do, specifically the Sporttech & the higher models. Yes you should disconnect the battery, wait for a while, then push the brake pedal a couple of times to make sure any residual charge has gone. This should be in the instructions from Jass. When I fitted them to my NC I found the drop put the seats at too much of an angle so ended up getting some longer bolts and washers & fitting them at about half height. This was perfect for me (6’ 2.5")
