Thumbs up Manual Seats to Leather Seats

Hey guys. My car is a 2014 base v6 with manual cloth seats. There is a guy selling his 2014 GT leather seats. I want to do a swap with him. His driver side is a power seat and the passenger side is manual.

Can i just go ahead and do a straight swap without an issue? He said it will be a direct swap and there is a power harness under my manual seat which will plug right up!

Let me know if you guys have experienced this before. Any opinions/insights will be much appreciated.

Thanks!

UPDATE:

I installed the leather seats. They were a DIRECT swap. Power seat harness is built in to the connectors in all 10-14 mustangs from the factory whether the seats are manual cloth or automatic leather.

The seats look really good and im really happy

What about the airbag light? Did it give you any trouble? I have heard that swapping seats might trigger airbag light to go on.

Good to know, I read that the harnesses are already in the car, manual or power seats. I have cloth seats, but power driver, and manual passenger. I plan to swap to leather seats too.

No air bag light since the seats came out of a 2014 GT. (Mine is a 2014 V6)

However the guy that took my seats, put them in his 2010 GT and the air bag light came on. He fixed that by putting his '10 bottom seat panel in my 14' seats to put in his car and his airbag light was gone.

But if you are swapping 13-14 seats to 13-14 cars, it will be fine.

The TMS app makes the picture quality horrible. Looks really good on my phone and in person! Love it. Also, the blue accent you are seeing on the front seats are from the BLUE LEDs Map lights.

What about 2010 GT leather seats to 2014 base V6 with cloth? ANy light problems? How would I get the heated seats to work?
