S500: I have a 2000 Mercedes S500 in very nice condition, 125,000

Customer Question

I have a 2000 Mercedes S500 in very nice condition, 125,000 miles, and I love my car. One of my dogs chewed into the bottom cushion of my drivers seat. After looking for a while I recently bought a replacement seat cushion for very cheap on EBay. It's a perfect match. Gray color is spot on, has the ventilation holes, etc. Can I do this myself? How would I? Mercedes servicers in the area WILL NOT install used parts they haven't acquired and marked up. Thx, Not A Car Mechanic Guy

I'll need to do it tomorrow as I'm at work and won't be able to try it until I get home. But it looks simple enough.

Well some kind of snafu is happening here because your instructions didn't make any sense. The only thing I can think of is that you're thinking I'm replacing the wrong thing. I'm replacing the whole lower left seat. There are electrical connectors on the bottom of the replacement part for the heater, it has a metal base with two screw holes on each side and the front, and it looks like I have to take a plastic cover off around the seat base to get access to the screws. I don't know HOW I'm going to unscrew the right side, which is pressed right up against the center console.
