Interior exchange

8188 Views 18 Replies 11 Participants Last post by  paleblue46
i'm about to exchange the interior of my 2008 xb with the interior of a 2011 xb. new seats and center console that is. i want the better bolstered seats for support and lighter color pattern. i want the armrest on the center console, its actually functional, useable.
any advice on 'how to' do this the best way, sequence, concerns etc.? airbag deployment concerns? easy straightforward bolt in and out, or is there a surprise lurking in the process?
is the 'footprint' of the center console the same for both year models?

thanks in advance for any helpful advice

I take it though that I am going to have to take off the armrest on my seats to fit the newer console?
From what I've read on other posts, yes, a pre-2011 xB has to remove the armrest mounted on the drivers seat in order to fit a 2011 or later xB center console.
