Default Leather Seat Question

So both my front bottom halves of my seats are black leather and the stitching is all ripped and beyond repair. I just read the forum on how to remove the bottom half of the seat and also remove the leather and foam. I was wondering what seat bottom would be compatible with my 2002 Saab 9-3 SE 5dr hatchback? At my local scrapyard they didn't have any good 99-02 Saab 9-3 leather seats, so I was wondering if a 06 Saab 9-3 seat bottom leather would be the same dimensions and side right over the foam or would a 9-5 year probably 01 and 04 work? Both had great condition leather seats and would be willing to go back and get either if they would work properly.

None of those will work, unfortunately. The only ones that will fit directly are 9-3 seat covers from 1999 through 2002. Also make sure that if your car has power seats that you get covers from a car that also has power seats or non-power if yours aren't powered.

If you use the foam and leather from the 9-5's it will work, you can get away with just using the leather but I believe the bolsters on both the bottom and back are a little more pronounced on the 9-5 so if you use just the leather it maybe a little loose over the 9-3 foam.
