I'm looking at the options for swapping the seats in my 3 door 2001/Y Golf.

Having searched, I know that plugs might be an issue but I'm also thinking about airbags.

Three questions:

  • Is there a date for changeover of plugs (pre 2002 they were type A, post 2002 they were type B etc)?
  • If I don't get the same plug type but want to refit the original seats, can I buy plugs from the dealer to avoid butchering the originals? If so what is the likely cost?
  • Do all seats have the same number of airbags (even the basic models)?

I would stick with seats fitted to 3 door mk4 Golfs so assume that they would all physically fit.

Thanks in advance

im not sure if i read this correctly, but the connectors your talking about are underneath the seats. depending on what seats your putting in, there maybe a chance the connectors wont be the same. as i changed my standard seats for recaros, and i had to change over the actual connectors, wasnt hard just sourcing the part numbers took time.

if you need the part numbers ill have a look for you if you need them. pm me.
