My wore out seat bottom foam got a face lift

Because I'm to cheap to buy new ones, I got tired of always leaning towards the door while driving. Drivers seat wasn't horrible but enough to be annoying. Seat bottom foam has broken down on the outer edge and figured the passenger seat foam has got to be pretty darn close to being the same.

Sorry, no pics...pretty simple if you need to do this. And I have leather seats

Removed seat side trim screws and plastic push pin in the back. Mine has two plastic rivets in the front. I just let the trim hang on those. Don't have replacement ones.

Moved seat all the way forward and removed the 10mm bolts holding the lower seat bottom frame to the seat track. Allows for the frame to be pushed up so you can sneak the seat cover keepers out from between.

Removed the seat cover plastic "keepers" from the frame. Pulled seat cover back to expose seat foam.
(Being careful not to tear the velcro off the foam cushion pull the seat cover back)

Removed both foams and swapped sides.Be sure to push the foam all the way to the back of the seat frame. Now the broken down side will be towards the inside/middle of the truck. Reinstall all removed parts in reverse order.

I only had to trim the foam on the driver side in order for side seat trim alignment pin to go back into the hole.

Now I have a nice firm side of my seats.
Now you wont be riding in the door pocket driving down the road!
