Exactly! I found a set of newer seats at Garland PNP and wanted to try to fit them into my 123. No power, seat in low position. I could get the covers and the back but no luck on the bottom frame unless I could power the seat and change postion to get to the bolts.

I wasted too much time and gave up.

Repaired my 123 seats including having an uphostery shop sew in new MB tex panels to repair a couple of rips.
