Hi , their is no reason why you couldnt make it fit but here is a list of a few things you would have to do.
1. make sure the seat rail lines up with the anchor bolts on your car if not then you will need to remove the metal frame rail from the seat of your car and change it over onto the new seat,(this will involve welding and would need to be tested for strength in case of accident)

If you got this far had all the rail lined up correctly and welded really secure Its what people have to do when they are modding their car and fitting racing seats etc.

Now as long as it 100% safe and working correct on the rails then you got the seat ligning up correct then the next thing to do is splice some wires.

To do this you need to know exactly what each wire is depending on how many wires are coming from the new chair, you would need live wire earth wire and maybe even permanent live wire it all depends on how many wires are coming from the new seat.

So once your looking at the wiring side of the job you would need to run a in line fuse on the new seat wires going to a live source from your car, Without the inline fuse if anything was to short you could set your car on fire.

In line fuse is very important as the ford seat would have been wired through the fords main fuse box so you need to know what amp fuse you need to ensure safety.

If you know what your doing with electrics then this would not be to difficult if you have not done anything like this before then dont risk it as you could fry your whole car or fry the ecu very expensive repair.

Im not telling you this is going to be easy im just giving you a few ideas that you need to think about.

The other problem you have is where your going to run the live wire from as cutting into another device could put to much power on the source causing it to keep blowing the fuse or worse cause fire.

If you are unsure of the electrics but are ok fitting the seat onto the rail then i would fit the seat make sure it secure then get a garage to splice the wires in for you as it will all need testing for safety etc

Please dont go ahead if you are unsure as you are putting your life in your own hands if you ever had an accident (and touch would you never do) you need to be 150% sure that the seat is going to stay in its place.

You need to keep the ford seat on its own rails that it moves on but you might need to weld your frame in place so as the bolts that hold the seat to the floor of car lign up.

You need to make sure it is lined up 100% as it can cause muscle pains if you are driving with the seat out of line.

This work can be done but needs to be done to a very high standard just for the safety aspect. Once the seat is sitting correct and all lined up then go ahead with the electrics.

Depending on how many wires are coming from the seat would decide how you and where you wire it into to.

Let me know how many wires are coming from the seat and ill do my best to assist you further.


Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance

Can i switch of the passenger airbag in my 2003 ford focus?

The passenger airbag is what is called a smart generation airbag, there is a sensor in the passenger seat that tells the airbag control module to turn off the bag if the weight is less than 50 pounds in the paswsenger seat, i.e. a child, I work for Ford and we will not turn off or tamper with or disconnect the airbag, why? if you get in a wreck and are hurt because we disconnected or otherwise defeated the airbag we would be liable for damages and a lawsuit.
