Rear Seat Swap - SEC/SEL W126

First of all, pretty pissed at my dog right now. He has never, ever done something like this. I leave him in the car often and he grew up doing so. Just curled up and sleeps. Not this time, destroyed back seat. In 6 years, never ever would have guessed.

So stupid question time. Anyone think SEC seats will fit into the rear? I know some custom work will be needed and I will not have a power bench. But I want to think of some options for the swap.

Obviously if I can find Safran seat covers in good condition, I will go that route. Palomino might be close in color match too.

I wouldn't try this. SEC rear seats have separate bolsters and backs that attach to special hardware, rather than the bench type seats used in the SEL's. I have had a couple of 126 SEC's, and the back seats are pretty different from the SEL's. I think they might be narrower, too.

IMO, your best alternative would be a search for a compatible seat from a car being parted out. The other ($$$) alternative would be new seat covers and other parts from MBUSA.
