My wife hates the g6e passenger front seat. You can't adjust height and seat angle, also it doesn't have the same dimensions as the driver seat. If I bought a new driver seat, would it work ok as a passenger seat? Would the airbags still be effective? I realize that I'd have to wire it in and reverse the controls at the base. My wife is right, it is nothing like the degree of comfort of the driver's seat.
A hoist will make the job easier for sure ,
but try to get some access by putting the car up on stands , or drive the front wheels up onto ramps and then jacj up the rear and put stands under just the rear .
