    Default D9 406 wagon seat swap.

    Hi all,

    This may be an odd question, but I was wondering if anyone knew if the seats from a 407 wagon will fit into a 406 wagon?
    I'm quite a large guy and the biggest thing I hate about the 406 is the seats aren't very wide or supportive (especially on long trips).
    I would like to replace the seats with more comfortable ones (hence the 407 Q), but I don't know if they're a similar size, OR if there will be issues due to both vehicles having airbags in the side of the seats.

    The alternative is seats from another vehicle....Has anyone installed non Peugeot seats into their car successfully? I was also thinking about seats from a Fairmont Ghia or similar, but again am unsure about the airbag issue. I know the airbags need to function in case of a collision and I wouldn't want to jeopardise that.

    Any info that anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated.
    Huge thanks in advance.
    Jeff.

    Knowing Peugeot, it's highly unlikely that the seats are interchangeable, but you never know. As you say , the biggest issue will be the airbags.

    You don't say whether your or the 407's seats have electric controls. This may be an issue too

    The likelihood of Ford seats fitting is extruded remote

    Good luck though

    I'd suggest first looking at alternative 406 seats - they are not all the same. Do yours have electric controls? We have a D9 SV with the higher spec seats - leather, with all electric adjustment. These have quite good support, although you may still find them a bit narrow (and they lack lumbar adjustment ). I believe coupes have different seats again, but they should all be interchangeable.

    It should be possible to find all types of 406 seats at wreckers - someone on here may even have some!

    Cheers

    Thanks for your advice guys.
    The 407 seats I've seen online have airbags in them and were electric as well.
    I have a spare 406 wreck with leather seats, but they're exactly the same size and feel as the cloth ones that are in my registered car. Both have manual seat adjustments and no lumbar support. They're also both not very wide across the back.

    In the past (before airbags were in everything) It was a quite a lot easier to replace seats...
    Sometimes it feels like it would be easier to just replace the car.. haha.
