Well I have had alot of people asking me how I put my 5th gen seats into my 92 Prelude S. So I thought I might as well do a write up so everyone knows. The reason I did this is because I couldn't find any nice 4th gen seats locally and I was able to get these for about 1/3 the cost of getting some decent 4th gens shipped to me.
Now obviously I used stock seats from a 99 Lude but this also means you could probably use any seat designed for the 5th gen as well.
Now I know my car is extremely messy and dirty, but ignore that for now. It is temporarly out of commision while I track down my fuel problem.
This is the drivers front left
bolt (lines up perfectly and used OEM bolt)
This is the drivers front right
bolt (again line up perfectly and used OEM bolt)
And the drivers rear left
bolt - this one took a little modification to get to work. All I did was get a allen head bolt from fastenal with the same thread as the OEM bolt that the head fit inside the rail and a small washer. Drilled a whole through the rail and tightened the bolt. FYI - When I tightened this bolt tight my rail was a little sticky in this area for a while. It probably tweaked the rail form slightly. After a couple weeks of use sliding the seat forward and back it works great now.
And finally the drivers rear right
bolt - this one wasn't quite as clean. I wanted to do like the rear right bolt and use an allen head, but the rail assembly lined up in a way that wouldn't allow it. So I just simply drilled a small hole in the floorboard. I used fender washers and locknuts on the bottom, then sprayed it with spray on truck bed liner as a rust preventative.
Repeat for the passenger side - it all works the same way.
Overall this was an easy mod-install that really didn't take much longer than a typical seat swap.
If anyone does this would they please post the sizes of the bolts and washers they used for future reference. Otherwise I will be pulling my seats soon for black carpet install and I will check mine then.
If anyone has any questions, comment, concerns just ask.
