Front seat swap

Post by quarterflash » Mon Apr 29, 2019 5:14 pm

I'm finding the front seat of my XE SE is not suited to my stauture and it doesn't have lumbar adjustment. However if I add a cushion to the lumbar reagion it improves the comfort and reduces the back pain. My last car was an S Type and I had no back pain from it in 6 years.
So does anyone know if it is possible to retro fit front seats with lumbar support? I guess all the motors are in the seat so it should just be a straight swap.
All comment and suggestions welcome.

The motors may be, but is all the wiring? Hopefully as all control is also on the seat there are perhaps just a few wires in the loom. getting a seat may be another story unless you can order new.

One company I've used for S/H spares is Auto Reserve Jaguar, 01158 372707. Not a lot of XE stuff though the last time I looked (plenty for X-types), but worth a phone call.

My other vehicle is coal fired. 8-) (very lo-tech)
