New guy with a 190 seat spring question

gotta buncha broken springs in the seat base and need to replace, but decent spring bases for a 190 are hard to find. Does any one know another model that will interchange a seat base with an '88 190?

The W201 seat base, because of the narrower width, aren't interchangeable with others. There are many available in recycle yards, so they shouldn't be hard to find. Also, on the non motorized seats, it's easy to swap bottoms with the passenger side, which is usually in better shape.

Yep, already switched 'em left for right.

too bad about non-interchangability though. There seem to be lots of seat springs out of the 126's and 201's

Thanks though!

MTI: are seat bottoms for a '77 3000D easy to switch driver side/passenger side? Thanks
