2014 reg XTR seat replacement
#1
Hi folks,

My retired racing greyhound took a fancy to the front passenger seat and chewed a fair portion of it. Main dealer want over £300 to repair so my options are take it to a trimmer or get a seat from a scrapper.

I'm a bit of a duffer mechanical wise. Is it easy to bolt the old seat out and bolt the new one in? There are what look like hexagonal headed bolts which require an alan key or similar but also some strange looking "squashed nuts" (ouch). Also there's a side airbag which must have sensor/electrical components.

Is replacing a seat a job for a novice?

Thanks in advance.

Dave

I looked at mine, but couldn't work out how to disconnect the electrics. It's an inline plug, plugged into a socket - but I couldn't see which part was meant to come out of what, or which catch needed releasing.

I was thinking about removing it to carry more stuff, but decided it's too much work for the small gain in loadspace, so gave up with the idea.

It would be nice if it popped out as easily as the back ones - perhaps that's one for the 2018 version wishlist.

Other things intervened but I'm going to try to sort this now.

How do I ensure a replacement seat from an online scrapper is the right colour? The car is "shark grey" but the trim is described only as "matching".. Anyone know whether Citroen did more than one colour seats per car colour? I could ask for a photo I suppose but the camera does lie.

Cheers

As far as I know, they've always been the same colour regardless of paint. Later 2014 XTRs (like mine) were black with a beige coloured panel, but from 2008 until some point around 2014 they were also black but with light blue in place of the beige. So it should be one of these two colours depending on the age, but certainly check first.

My XTR is also a 64 reg so should be as you say. I'll check.

Thanks.
