The Right Seat

Before we start, I want to mention that you may see these ‘cushions’ arrive with a strange blotchy orange appearance, like this:

I am not sure what this was, but it did wipe off with a towel and some water!

Step 01

Fit the two posts of the Right Seat Back Cushion into the matching holes on top of the Right Seat Bottom Cushion, as shown:

Secure these parts together from below with two (2) NP screws:

Step 02

Fit the four posts on the bottom of the Cushion assembly into the Right Seat Housing, matching up the screw holes as shown.

Be careful not to damage the tiny seat adjuster lever at the front edge of the Right Seat Housing:

Secure these pieces together from below with four (4) MP screws:

Step 03

Retrieve your Interior assembly from the previous phase. Fit the posts on the bottom of this Seat assembly to the right side of the Floor Pan so the posts slide into the three slots, as shown:

Secure the seat to the Floor Pan from below using the Washer and one (1) NP screw.

The instructions say not to tighten this screw too much so the seat can move, but I tightened it all the way and the seat easily slides back and forth:

Thoughts


This phase was just a duplicate of the previous phase, so it felt very familiar to build. At least we have some seats in our interior now! The materials of this phase’s parts are plastic, PVC, and foam like the left seat.

Running Total of screws used so far: 246
