Fattie front seats fit yes. may be a little tight on the sides but the mounts are the same.

the only thing your gunna have problems with is the plugs. you dont wanna plug them in and have airbags and stuff going off. ive had multiple sets of seats including recaros now and i always leave them unplugged and deal with the stupid light , hoping it burns out one of these days.

Notorious0ne Its very easy to remove the rear seats in our cars. so i dont think you will have a problem.

06_infrared_zx4 Thanks for all the input. I was a little busier than expected on my day off and unable to measure the rails. I am worried about the 2010 backseat fitting into my 06, not sure if they're the same size/shape.

I really don't think the air bags will be an issue...if I get an air bag light I'll just hook it up to an IDS at work and fix it.

Notorious0ne Sorry i didnt get out of work until late last night didnt have the chance to check i will tonight. I know for a fact that 2005 rear seats bolt into the 2004 rear in the hatch models.

Everything in your car should work fine when pertaining to the front. the 2000-2004 models did not have passenger side air bag weight detection. I have momo racing seats in my 2004 and i just had to take the seat belt buckle from the stock seats and plug it into the current harness. As for the heated seat option you are going to have to wire that manually unless you currently have heated seats.

In my 2005 i do not have heated seats but i bought recaros that do so i am going to just wire them through my fuse box and mount a switch.

so your last question is will the rails work for the front correct? is there anything else i missed?

TriggersDawn I'd like to know the answer too. I'd love to swap '10 gray heated leather into our hatch.

Front seats would probably work fine, it's the rears I'd worry about for the complete swap.

When I installed '03 SVT seats into my '05 ST, I had to swap the '05 side seat air bags into the SVT seats. In addition, I had to swap the seat belt buckle, and the pressure sensing switch in the passenger seat cushion which activates the passenger side dash (front) air bag.
Keep in mind that when the air bag light comes on, none of the air bags work.
Good luck.
I could be wrong but i talked to a ford mechanic about the air bag light it just says that an airbag is unplugged I have recaros in my 2005 without the nifty sensor on the bottom on it and the light is on but he said it should still deploy, you just loose the feature of the weight sensing seat.
