    Ok, I have a VY SS series 2 Ute and would like to change the seats. The leather on the drivers seat is starting to crack a little.

    Will VE seats fit into a VY Ute? Will the rail system from the VY SS seat bolt to the VE seat?

    I'm pretty sure I spotted a post around here somewhere with that exact issue, although from memory you had to change the rails. Lemme see if I can find it for my fellow darwinite :p

    The answer appears to be no. Took a bit to find, and had to jump on HSV forum (knew I'd seen it somewhere) - rails are different. I'm not sure of anyone in Darwin that can do the modification to fit the VT-VZ rails onto the seats either sorry. I would try Katherine Holden, seriously, as they know what their talking about as opposed to our other Holden dealer. You know what I'm talking about :p

    Sure thing. I wasn't sure if it could be done. The VE Ute seats have a cool latch that flips the seat forward without having to readjust the back rest, would make it so much easier to put stuff behind the seat.

    I have to replace (or re cover) my leather seats as the drivers seat is starting to crack. Not cheap, $3000 trade price from Holden (for both seats complete) or $1000 re done in cloth or $1800 for leather. SS cloth seats only come with flicks of colour on them, not a pure black cover which is what I want.

    Cheers

    The rails can be replaced but they are not a direct 'in-out' ... a timely procedure which probably isnt worth the worry.. Dont have Holden re-trim them though... at $3000 you might as well sell yours on Ebay as damaged and buy yourself some brand newies!

    Yeah, I was hoping it would be an easy swap. Might just have the seat bases re trimmed?

    Good idea there but finding some in Darwin might be a little tricky. Will have a scout out for some. Had a quote today to have my seats redone and wasn't as bad as I thought compared to other ideas

    I have a VE SS and a Series 2 VX.
    The seats mounts are different, I like the VE ones as they are easier to get the seats out.
    Hope this helps. :)

    nate-vy, can you give the sellers name for me to look please? Would save the other people hijacking. BTW the seats you have look ok with the red interior. Ill ask the seller more about them if they are a decent price. Do they have the dump latch on them or not?
