Scorpio Lumbar Replacement?

Post by brokencase » Sun Feb 09, 2020 10:59 pm

I sure would like to get my lumbar pillows working again.
Saw these on Aliexpress. They seem like they might be a suitable replacement. Although I dread the job of pulling and dismantling the seats.

I just clicked on it and it worked. You are probably cutting and pasting the link into your browser. Just click on it instead.

In the midst of pandemic bordem, I ordered a pair. I think I'm ready to tear the front seats apart so I can install these and an aftermarket heated seat kit. Bought a hog ring & plier set. Might do a little leather repair while I'm at it. Should be an interesting project. Will post project photos here when i start it all..

It's a little daunting taking all those hog rings out, but just be patient and take pics along the way just in case you forget how things go back together. If you've got some spare leather pieces indeed it would be a good time to do some repair.

Look forward to reading about your experience. Please feel free to document it as much as you'd like. We won't mind. :cheers

You might not believe this. But back in the mid 90's when I had my first Scorpio, there was a pick an pull junk yard near me that had a Scorpio with a Raven interior. On one of their special discount days I went down a got a bunch of stuff off of that Scorpio. I grabbed a bunch of relays, the fuel computer, and some other bits. I also cut the leather from the rear seats. Stowed those leather pieces in a plastic bag up in the attic. Almost threw them away around 2005. Checked them recently and they look to be in good shape.

Glad I kept the fuel computer. It now resides in the current Scorpio. The original one's LCD display failed.

I have some pdf files from the UK Scorpio site that document seat disassembly. Can't post here, won't accept pdf attachments.

The heated seat kit was a bargain at $20 . It has a control module and a control switch that is a drop in to the Scorpio console rectangular hole.
The switch has independent roller adjustments for driver and passenger seats. I'll see if I can find a link to where I bought it from.

I appreciate that Bob, Let me wait until all the other stuff arrives and get the project started. If I need any I'll give you a holler.
