Guys, I have a chance to buy front AMG Performance seats. But they come from A-class W176, does anyone know are they the same as in our GLAs ... ??
From what I can tell the A Class and GLA Class are the same vehicle with a few minor differences. MB sells the A Class in Europe as a hatch and the GLA Class in North America as a SUV (because Americans do not buy hatchbacks
I can not see why the seats would not physically fit, but then there are the wiring harnesses…are they compatible?
Part numbers for GLA and A You mean ? I may check, but different numbers will not mean it will not fit. Technically I am sure will will fit but not sure about connections. Has anyone of You AMG seats in GLA ? Could You do picture of connections under it please ?I would think that Mercedes-Benz would save quite a bit of money by making them the same but you never know. Have you thought of getting the part numbers for replacement seats from a Mercedes dealer in a country where they sell both? If they come back the same for each model, you know you will probably be ok.
Yes, Part Numbers from the GLA and the A. I Understand that different numbers do not mean that they will not fit but if they are the same, you will have a affirmative answer.
The electrical connections>>>
If you look carefully there are additional wires to the connectors for the passenger side seat and the connectors are left hand side and right hand side specific. Also, would assume if you have the standard seats the head rest is moveable via the seat control on the door…AMG have fixed head rests. Since my GLA45 is a US spec car, it is a left side (steering wheel etc)…. in Poland are the cars left side or right side set ups?
I do not know if any of this helps or is causing more questions
