So this is a long post but a pretty cool mod if you ask me.
Cadillac Developed a seating system that has a series of 10 Air Blatters and uses 8 air pressure sensors that monitor the pressure in the blatter and then readjust every 4 minuets. There are a few different modes as well. There is off, AUTO, and lumbar only. so when the system is in auto, then the system goes to work making the occupant comfportable. lumbar only uses the air blatters in the backrest of the seat to give you your support.
it was a option that added $1,650 to the vehicle way back in 1998-2000.
anyway onto the pics
here is all the parts layed out on the table in Trim
the seat with the bottom cusion ff
back of the seat showing the lumbar
there is the leather off and the blatters mocked up in place
Back of the seat showing the Moudule and the pump for the blatters
the module mocked up in place with the pump
the bottom bags glued in place (using he same arear the GM used for bag movement)
because the Caddy has a different seat cusion design i had to be creative so i took some Last and sewed it into the plastic lumbar plate, so the orignal seat cusion will stick to it
here is the back bags glued in place
i did have to modify the hook and loop of te seat cover so the air lines can get o the correct place
and the money shot. The completed seat with the blatters and the cover reinstalled
adjustable bolsters not only in the backrest but in the bottom cusion.....ya eat your heart out AL7's
