I had a longer drive in the driver seat (leather) of my 2011 ! Soul. Well... it was pretty uncomfortable, with a little back pain towards the end. Besides being a harsh seat compared to my Sable, I also have the feeling that the foam is worn unevenly, slightly tilted to the left side, the door side. This happend on other cars that I have bought used, like the previous people would not sit straight in their seat.
Now... should I try to get a new foam support for that seat (IMO not so great from the start) or a whole new aftermarket seat? The OE seats have side airbags in them and they are heated.
Anyone here did any research into this?
Seems like there are two part numbers, for the whole assy (I think I have the one with height adjust), that would fit to my 2.0L, both for a "cool" $375:
On my Ford Explorer (also leather seat), I tried to replace the foam, but because of included heating and side airbag, it was complicated to remove. I ended up adding some foam on that side of the seat, under the leather cover.
