So I just bought what dude claimed were 1988 crx si seats. They don't fit at all. The stance of the railings on the si seats are at wider. Don't really want to drill holes. I thought 88-89 bolted right up, am I doing something wrong??

welcome to my actual dilemma, which like you i found out the hard way: those seats won't fit in our 88s without fabrication of some sort. not even a seat pan swap will work. so, yeah *sighs*

From what I've found from all 3 of my past 88crx's have all had the wide 90-91 style rails..Id say do a seat pan swap but IIRC the 88's have an odd ball seat pan so it's a lil tricky

just to be clear: are you trying to fit crx seats into a hatch, or to another crx?

I love how what are supposed to be easy bolt ons, always turns into tricky mods.. but only with the cool stuff that people want. Come on Honda make it tricky to remove wipers not swap seats!!

ya CRX seats dont bolt into hatches.

you need to make custom brackets its not hard to do at all especially if u can weld.


i had an 88 CRX seat in my old 89 SI hatch.

with only a drill, some 1/4" flat bar, and washers/longer bolts you can make it work.

Just an update.. I swapped the seat pans/rails from the stock 89 seats with the cushion from the 88 crx si.. didn't want to mess with the backsupport, so from what I can see the driver side back will line up with the passenger bottom.. couple of little mods and should be good..... SHOULD. hopefully I'm not going in circles.
