By way of an update, I have now returned home with the Navigator seats & consoles (front & rear) which I picked up in Toronto area Saturday.

The challenge now will be to fit the 2002 Navigator seats into a 2006 Expedition.

Measuring tape suggests swapping the fronts should be a breeze. A quick look suggests the wiring connections may be the same on the driver's bucket seat. If lucky all that will be needed will be additional wires to be inserted into connector to accommodate heating function which the Expi doesn't presently have.

Rears may not be so easy --- there appears to be a difference in the depth of the seat support structure.

Knock on wood.

Hey Woodcarver,
How did the front driver seat electrical work for you with the wiring change? I recently bought at a salvage yard, a used drivers seat cause the motor is gone in mine, but it's an EB with heat and my expy doesn't have that. Would love to hook up the heat but not sure if it's capable or what kind of wiring I would have to add, etc. If you got yours done and have any info that would be greatly appreciated. I posted a similar question right about the same time and the thought of it being heated is a dream to me.... : )

Haven't completed the job yet. One issue that has come up is that the 2006 Expi seat has fewer motors than does the 2002 Navigator version does and passenger side on the Expi has none.

Trying to simplify my life, I started the installation on Sunday by detaching the passenger side Navigator seat from its base in order to install it on the Expi base. The lumbar support and backrest reclining functions appear to be a match. Assuming that the bolt holes on the base line up, then it should be an easy install. Down side, the Navigator passenger seat would now operate manually. Up side - no wiring to do to set it up other than find a way to power the heated seat function. The plan would then be to close off the side with the Expi trim (the Expi switch is smaller), possibly then relocating the heat switch to the console. But I have to work outside in the driveway and when a snow storm whipped up, I decided to wait for better weather to finish the installation. How this goes will determine my approach with the installation on the driver's side.

Not sure when I'll get another chance to tackle this. I'll keep you posted.
