Wear some kind of protective gloves if possible. I cut myself twice while being careful. Lots of random sharp edges underneath the seat.

What did you think of the outcome, warm? Significant improvement? Any idea what kind of foam was added? Any impact to the heating/cooling function of the seat?

A little back story: My driver's seat is not as comfortable as it ought to be for a flagship Lexus. I've felt this way since I bought it last year. The lumbar supports are all but hard and my butt...

Sorry. TA = time alignment. (TA is a part of the factory stereo in the 04 - 06. Not in our cars sadly.) Generally the processor will use some sort of microphone setup to do it's best to ensure all...

I called a local car upholstery shop about rebuilding my driver's seat. They said they'd first try steam to rejuvenate the foam. So I youtube'd what they were talking about. Looks pretty straight...
