Introduction

This pictorial guide is great way to inform yourself on how to remove and install new seats in to your Subaru BRZ or Scion FRS. A good bucket seat is always a necessity for safety and comfort when driving a sports car.

  1. Installing in the seats, make sure to have the proper tools. You will need an E10 Torx socket. If you do not have that socket, do not attempt to remove the seats. FRSport does not recommend using the impact tool while removing the seat.

  10. After bolting on the seat belt buckle, you can now move on to the seat. Bolt the side mounts on to the seat first. This prevents the seats from being stretched and damaged if the side mounts were too far apart being bolted into the rail first. Since this is a non recline able seat, position the seat on the side mounts to the preferred seating position.

  12. Once both side mounts are tight on the seat, it is now time to bolt the side mounts to the seat bracket. A 2nd pair of hands might be useful for this as to make sure that the rail is lined up properly on the holes of the side mount. Line up the holes and loosely push the bolts through and thread the nut on.

    • When using the Bride FO Seat Rail / Slider, the provided spacers need to be used to keep the seats level. Do not forget those spacers.

  14. Depending on the side of the the seat, the seat belt wires may be really long or really short. A good way to keep them from being pinched and keeping the install clean would be to wrap the wires through the brackets and sliders. We used zip ties to tie them down into the bracket for that clean look.

  15. Give the all the bolts on the seat and rail a once over to make sure they're all tight. it is now time to bolt the seat into the car. We did both sides of the car so a matching pair of bucket seats will be shown. Line up the seat bracket to the holes of the chassis and use the stock bolts to bolt the new seats back in.
