    I did this a few weeks ago. Did the seat and the back. Also replaced the seat foam. Seat cover is held to cushion with velcro. Just line it up and press it down. You will need to remove the seat from the car. No screws holding the plastic panels. Just clips. Pry the two forward seat switches off. Remove the panels by pulling straight outward away from seat. Bolts for the seat and seatbelt are Torx. Pretty big one at that. You do not have to disconnect the battery. Anymore questions please ask

    Don, was the seat foam factory or did you get it aftermarket? What was the cost of the foam? I may need to do this soon. My leather is good but my drivers seat is not what it once was.

    As you did I bought the pieces from GMPARTSDIRECT. So the foam is factory. Made a huge difference in comfort. I think the cushion was around $45. But that was before the shipping cost which I had all 3 pieces shipped together.

    Yes. The bottom seat cover was torn on the outside edge. So I decided to replace it. Since the back cover wouldn't be a perfect match I decided to replace that too. And the seat foam was just a what the hell. I was gonna have it all apart so figured it would be not smart to use the old one.

    Top right click catalog. Put in your info. Click body hardware, then seats & tracks, then front seat components. Rest is obvious from there. There are schematics so you find the correct part. Just make sure you read the entire description as there are several different options for the same part.

    Part number 25944059. This is with seat heater which almost all DTS's have. 15216256 if you do not have the seat heater.
