Ok, Completed the install of set of front seats from what turned out to be a 1998
S70 into my 1997 850.
I used the multiple page guide with pictures that is posted at the start of this
Some things went as stated, others were different/easier.
Passenger seat. The passenger seat was a power seat vs
a manual in my 850. Install was as stated. I did
not remove the manual adjustment arm, because it is a power seat
and I did not have to change over the seat belt catch.
Just used what was on the seat.
The power seat part did not function at first. I had to remove
the cover on the fuse box to get to the "hidden" breakers/fuses 39 and 40.
Being the 850 did not have a power seat, number 40 slot was empty.
I was able to get that fuse out of the car I was taking seats from and install in my 850.
That got 12 volt to the wiring harness on the 850. BUT, the 2nd power wire on the seat
did not have wire to it from the 850 harness. I was able to cut the harness off of
the S70 car so I had an extra connector. I then removed a female connector from the
harness from S70. Plugged it into the empty plug on the 850. Installed a Y connector
to the other 12 volt wire in the harness. Now 12V went to both wires on the seat.
Seat works fine now. I think one of these wires is supposed to be constant and
the other switched, but the seat adjusts so I called it good. Black was ground
at this plug and green was 12V. On the seat side of the plug, red was the wire
not getting 12v due to the missing wire.
I am sure there are other ways to do this, but this is what I did.
Drivers seat. This one went just as the instructions said.
Only pain was cutting that bracket off as described.
Fortunatly I knew someone with a air hammer. With
the cutting blade, he popped the bracket off in 10 seconds.
Wiring was all there since power seat to another power seat.
Thanks for everyones help...
PS My heated seats actually work again.
