Return to the BUILD
“Assemble and fix the right seat and its cushions to the floor pan.”
These steps are identical to the previous phase, just on the right side of the car.
- 41A – Right Seat Housing
- 41B – Right Seat Bottom Cushion
- 41C – Right Seat Back Cushion
- 41D – Washer
- 4x MP screws (+2 extra)
- 3x NP screws (+1 extra)
Materials: The Right Seat Housing is plastic, but the rest of these parts are a mix of plastic, PVC, and foam.
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!
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:
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:
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:
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!
