How do I change the rear seat lock on a NG900

I purchased some seats out of a 2002 9-3, to go into my 95' 900.......Does anyone know how to swap out the lock in the rear seat ? I am sure I could pull the seat apart to change it, I was just wondering if there is a better way other than opening up both seats to change the lockset over.

ok well for those of you who want to know...this is how I did it. there is a rubber bead attached to the carpet on the side of the seat cover, you can see this when you fold the seat down. I took hold of it with some plyers and pulled the bead out. this removes the front cover from the plywood back. there are two clips inside at the headrest attachment points, you need to lift them up as you drive the headrests out with a screwdriver and small hammer, now the seat cover can be removed from the seat back that the lock mech. is fastened to. swap the seat cover and foam to your old seat back ( the one you have the key for ) and drive the bead back into the race that is in the seat back, lastly slip the headrests back into there holes and you are done.

Yeah to fold down the seat for the pass thru ( convertible ) you have to use your key on the top of the seat back to enable the seat to fold down

Are you sure the key hole is matched to a specific key? I've used my 9-5's key to unlock the seatback on my convertible.
