I have a 2017 SV with 75K miles. My drivers seat is breaking down and getting mushy. its killing my low back. I found OEM foam for the drivers seat for $235 from the dealer. I am happy to buy it rather than try to reshape or patch.

I've reupholstered seats before - but never in anything with sensors or air bags.

How do I remove the drivers seat cushion? Do I need to remove the entire seat from the van? Do I need to disconnect the battery so those airbags or sensors are happy? if anyone has a link to a video of this , I would be grateful.

don’t bother my friend. First ask yourself, “Where’s the Win?” By that I mean, you spend $500 parts and labor to fix a park bench wrapped in washcloth. Do what I did… I spend 12-15 hours/ week driving and quickly realized that those seats are possibly the worst seats I’ve ever had. I found someone selling a pair of 20-way adjustable power luxury Seats out of an M5 BMW. I removed the factory sliders from the factory seat and made two adapter rails to adapt the factory rails to the BMW seat’s rails. The height ended up being perfect, and I can use the factory manual slider to move the seat forward to gain access to stuff behind the seats. Let me know if you want more info, but it absolutely changed my life (or at least the life of my Back!) I ended up paying $400 for the pair of black leather seats in excellent condition.
