You can swap them from side to side. The side bolster on the seat bottom broke on my drivers seat, I hardly ever have a passenger in my car (we take my wife's truck everywhere) I swapped the two and it's like a new car, the seat has more support and is comfortable again. Best mod I've ever done (and cheapest too)

I started reading at page 1, then found this tidbit.
I am doing this today. The side supports in mine are busted too. Awesome tip and rep coming your way.



I have 135,969 currently.

Replace a broken timing belt at about 89,000, just the belt and tensioner.
Rear wheel bearings done under the recall at about 20,000.
Brake pads around 60,000. Rears need to be done again.
Front O2 around 100,000.
Front springs replaced under the extended corrosion warranty at 128,000, broke both fronts.
Fuel pump around 70,000. I just missed the satisfaction program by a month. Bought one outright then found out I could have had it done for free. Oh well live and learn.
Broke 1 shifter base and 1 shifter cable clip on the trans.


I should fix the therm housing but I haven't. RTV and zipties are holding for now, LMAO.
I have to adjust the valves at some point. They are yelling at me to do so.
Mods are listed below and associated parts have been replaced.
I bout mine brand new with 6 miles on it, 2 from the dealer initial test drive and 4 from my test drive. Far as I know I am the only driver of this car since new.
The only time it has seen the dealer was for the rear bearings and the springs. Other than that I do all my own work on it.
Synthetic oil since 1,500 miles and I average 28MPG.
