HELP!!! Replacing rear seats.


I have a mini cooper convertible 2008 model and I need to replace the rear seat bottom. I have no idea where to get one or how to fit it.

A Mini dealer will sell you new upholstery for the seat base, but expect to pay over 200 for cloth, more for leather and you may need to pay a car upholsterer to fit it, though the Mini parts diagram shows it just fitting on a frame:

If the seats are leather, you might find a car upholsterer who can repair your existing seat base, but I doubt this would be any cheaper than a new seat base if it's cloth, by the time they have bought matching fabric.
