Replacing driver's seat on 2002 Pontiac Grand Am SE

The driver's side front seat on my 2002 Grand Am is broken and I need to replace it. Somehow the support structure on the right side of the seat has failed, so the driver is leaning to the right. Not comfortable! So the two questions I have are...where can I find a replacement seat (junk yard, dealer or website) and is this something that I can replace on my own? I have absolutely no idea how to replace a seat, but I'm pretty handy and smart. I was raised with the motto of not letting the fact that I don't know how to do something get in the way of doing it. Thanks in advance for any help!

For this year model, I would recommend finding a seat at a salvage yard. It will be considerably cheaper than purchasing one online (shipping) or buying a new one from the dealer (outrageous mark-up).

As for replacing it, most GM products are fairly simple to remove the seat from. I haven't replaced the seats in this particular year model, but I would start with looking for four studs running up from the floor of the car where the feet of the seat supports bolt to. It's normally or 5/8" or 3/4" nut holding the seat rails (feet) to the studs. On SOME GMs, depending on the year model, the studs are actually bolts and made need to be secured from underneath the car with a wrench to hold them still while you're removing the nuts... kind of a pain, but definetly a DIY job.

One thing... if you happen to have side-impact airbags on the car, be sure to disconnect the battery cables before removing the seats. If the airbag accidentally deploys, if can cause injury.

Good luck!

SOURCE: Replacing a drivers side mirror

There is a panel on the inside of the door where the mirror is.
That has to come off.
In some cases the door panel has to come off also.
Under the mirror panel there are nuts that hold the mirror on. Remove the nuts unplug the harness and install the new one.

SOURCE: Airbag light comes on intermittently for 2002 Grand Caravan

Makes sense if that is what code was stored in the Occupant Restraint Module. There are sensors in the seatbelts now.

SOURCE: Broken front lug bolt in 2002 Pontiac Sunfire.

Remove wheel, caliper and rotor. hit it solidly with a good hammer and it should go right through and fall out. Sometimes you will need to grind a bit off the side of the new one to get it past any obstructions. That will not harm its performance in any way unless you take way more than you need to off of it.To get it all the way back in, oil the threads, put a stack of large washers on it and tighten the nut on backwards till you draw it all the way in.

Can I replace my 98 grand prix driver's seat with


You can replace it as long as the one you are replacing is the same set-up. If you have a manual adjusting seat and replace it with a power seat it will fit but you wont have the hook ups for it. Also make sure if it is a bucket seat (single person) you dont replace it with a bench (3 persons fit in front) seat or you will run into problems with the center console and shifter. vice versa may bolt up but there will be a gap between the 2 front seats

I had a problem similar to this but mine was in a GT and they would just work when they wanted to. I just had all the wires cut leading to the front passenger seat, back driver seat, and back passenger seat. And left the wires on the main. They all work perfect now. But the downside is that the driver is the only one who can put the windows down. (Which isn't always a bad thing) Hope I could help!
