Default Swapping passenger bottom seat cushion onto driver's side

Is there any issue replacing the bottom rear cushion on the driver's side with a passenger side cushion?

We have quite a bit of wear on the driver's side, and obviously there are many more passenger side bottom cushions available in local junk yards.

I've had a few vehicles where this is possible. Wondering if it's already been done (or attempted and resulted in a failure).

Thanks!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I tried it on several cars from the mid 2000 era. Always ran into odd issues like the seat belt anchors or some dang bracket. Really bites to tear down 2 seats and have to put them back together due to failure. You could practice with junkyard seats. Like you say

I have done it just few weeks ago.

Both cushions are identical and it was an easy swap and no tools were required.

You will need to raise and lower the height of the driver's side seat to get clearance to remove and reinstall the cushion.

Thanks for the feedback!

I purchased a pristine passenger seat from a local yard, so I'll try the swap in the next week or so.

I haven't checked the connectors, but it does have the added complication of heated seats. My current driver's side heated seat does not work (likely an issue with the bottom cushion element as well). I don't believe the driver's seat has a presence sensing switch in it either.

I'll post whatever complications I find.

My car has non-heated seats.
