Swapping Honda Seats


#1

Will the stock seats out of my 1990 Honda Accord work (Fit) in my 1987 Honda civic?


#2

Not Likely. You can get a tape measure and see if any of the measurements are the same.


#3

Try it. Worst case, you’ll have to put them back in their original places and you’ll be out nothing.


#4

One idea, visit a used auto part recycler. Most of them have a database for part interchangeability. When I visit my local pick-and-pull for example I tell them what part I’m looking for a particular car, and they give me a print out of all the makes/models/years where that part is compatible.

Take a tape measure, eyeball the seat tracks, and do some measuring between mounting bolts for comparison purposes. Even if not a direct swap odds are a little improv will do the trick.

Many years ago I had an old Subaru whose seats were killing me. I happened to run across a guy who had an old junked out Chevy Citation sitting in the shade rusting away. He said I could have the bucket seats free of charge if I could use them.

I bolted the Citation seats onto the Subaru tracks and voila. My spine never quit thanking me. If a Chevy will fit Subaru then surely a Honda will go into a Honda.
