I am trying to have a seat from a 1999 Ford Explorer installed in my 1996 Explorer but am told that the wiring looks different for the connector and the seat does not work. Does anyone have wiring diagrams for the driver side power seat on both the 1999 and 1996 Explorer. Thanks for any help....vbullara

I did this on my 97, I put the heated leather in. I ended up doing a mish mash of wiring by taking both seats apart and making one seat from the 2, it's not really hard... but I've wired my driver's seat controls in the opposite way around so back = forward and up =down... but you get used to it after a while
