Well I finally have the brackets in the garage and the seats ready for install. The seats are just as comfy as my old recaros that were in my Si. I know how everything gets installed but Im still wondering about the stupid pass seat airbag circuit. Can I just unplug it or with that throw an airbag light??

Well I Installed them. Came out looking good! It started to rain a little bit so the mustang is a little wet. I wired up the seatbelt fasteners so those still work but the airbag sensor in the pass seat is impossible to get out without mutilating the seat. What a stupid feature, possibly the worst feature on any car anywhere ever.

I pulled fuse 17 which is for this system but i just get a solid airbag idiot light. When the fuse is in the air bag idiot light blinks in patterns. Need to do more research on how to disable it. I looked thorough the manual and it tells you how to disable the seat belt warning but not how to disable this "ingenious" airbag sensor crap.

Im not saying the corbeaus are the most comfortable seat ever but for their midrange price (about 800 w/ brackets for pair) they are really nice and tolerable racing seats for everyday driving. The do sit low in the mustang but thats how I like them. You could actually mount them about 1" lower if you removed the sliders and bolted the brackets right to the seats.

Also I've noticed rear passengers have more leg room now to the seat back being much thinner then the OEM.

I've attached a couple teaser pics. Any one with info about this airbag circuit please share, Im going schematic diagram hunting with my soldering iron.

I've actually got those exact seats (FX1-Pro, I think) And I'm about 6 feet tall and 150 lbs, and they fit perfectly. I currently have my stock seat belt in it though. I love them, although, you will need to tighten up the brackets every few months, or else they will start sqeaking like hell.

Jt_Moore - ummm , no you don't have those exact seats if you haveFX1 Pro's. FX1 Pros are fixed back - those are reclining.

50Resto.com has the Corbeau brackets for the S197

thats five-zero, not the letter O
