Slightly different part number but I don’t believe there’s a difference other then how they hook at top. My recaro one was damaged and I replaced it with a base seat back

Thanks that is bit of hickey if it doesn't work. I don't recall seeing these. I will double check

Hawks motor sports in sc deals with a lot of salvage cts-v/ Camaro stuff you could call them, only thing is it’s salvage so no guarantees on scuffs and stuff. Ryan in the parts department really knows his shit though he’s a nice guy

I’m not sure which one but either the recaro two large hooks at top faced up and the base seats faced down or vice versa but that was the only difference I saw

what holds these hooks on? maybe they can just be reversed depending on application

They are molded into the plastic seat back, I didn’t have an issue when I swapped one of mine out, might just be an older mold versus a new one. To the best of my knowledge it’s still attached to the back of my seat but I never go in the back seat of the coupe….

Only thing I did run into was there appears to be two different backs, one that is vinyl wrapped and one that is just plastic. Mine are ebony don’t know if it’s the same case in the titanium

Here are the two backs from the 2011 coupe w/ Recaros. Clearly made differently (mirrored structure) but I don’t know if interchangeable.

I think the recaro seats have the vinyl wrapped back and the base are just plastic.

If that is the case, I think I can take my seat and have the material moved over. Even plastic would be better and open foam though.

I just checked and the base V seats also have the vinyl backing the same as the Recaros.

The base CTS must have the uncovered plastic.
