More Civic Seating

Update by David S. Wallens to the Honda Civic Si project car
Mar 1, 2005

Our Civic now has a seat that fits properly. The upholstery is close enough to the rest of the car.
Obviously this car wasn't able to yield much for our own Civic.

Our Civic now has the correct back seat in place, as we (finally) had some spare time last night. Removing the Civic’s rear seat isn’t hard at all, but a special technique helps. Some excellent directions can be found over at

Almost the entire seat assembly snaps into place, although one bolt is needed. Ours was missing, but found a replacement at the local hardware store. An M6-1.00x20 bolt got us back in business.

Before installing our stock Civic rear seat, we weighed it. The bottom cushion weighs 7-1/2 pounds, while the complete seat back (both parts) hits the scales at just under 20 pounds.

We’re still looking for a few factory odds and ends for our Civic, so we have been checking out the local U-pull-it yards on a regular basis. We hit pay dirt yesterday, as our local yard recently received a 1992 Civic Si. Unfortunately, the car is a fire victim and has been burned to a crisp. We didn’t return home with anything useful other than a few photos.
