Step 1: Find a bucket seat. We found ours on Ebay. The van it came from had been in a wreck so it was being sold for parts. The seat had no damage though other than needing a new seatbelt pretenser which is not a surprise and we'll show you how to replace it!
Step 2: Disconnect the battery.
Step 3: Disconnect all 5 wire harnesses under bench seat.
Step 4: Loosen bench seat bolts.
Step 5: Remove bench seat!
Step 6: Remove bottom bar of bucket seat if you have a heater.
Step 7: Install bucket seat!
Step 8: Remove occupancy sensor from the middle seat of the old bench seat.
Step 9: Remove both seatbelt pretensers from old bench seat.
Step 10: Swap out your new bucket seat seatbelt pretenser with one of the old bench seat seatbelt pretensers. Since the new bucket seat had been in a wreck, the seatbelt pretenser was activiated on impact from the wreck and therefore needs to be replaced but it can be replaced with one of the old bench seatbelt pretensers.
Step 11: Reconnect wire harnesses. The two wire harnesses on the left will simulate the presence of the middle seat of the bench eliminating any alarms on your dash. Connect the old middle seat occupancy sensor and 2nd seatbelt pretenser here. We tucked them up under our bucket seat out of view.
