Title: rear seat spring frame
Post by: rumb on 24 June 2018, 05:14 AM
Anyone know why the rear seat spring frame is different between the 450SEL and the 6.9?  both the bottom and the back frame.

Models chosen are USA-based.

Yeah, different part numbers, but what is physically different? They both use the same pad. 

more cush in the 6.9?  taller?

The leather pattern is different on a 6.9. 

does that mean a 450sel cover wont fit on a 6.9 spring?

Rumb, you seem to be doing a reupholster job?  If so please continue to share your issues!  I'll be doing the same at some point soon.

I am doing my seats in a year plus when body work is done. I am asking now as a person wants to buy rear seats for a 450SEL, and I have 6.9 parts.  Trying to figure out any compatibility issues.

Your best choices for seat leathers are GAHH, World Upholstry and cabrio.de

I believe the difference is that the 6.9's rear seat is stiffer due to the fact that it's more likely to be chauffeur-driven and have adult passengers in the rear.

Normal W116 seat back:

6.9 seat back with coil springs for extra stiffening:

Besides that, there are also differences in the seat frames and pads between the above and reclining seats.
