Seats Problem!

Hey all, I have a problem with my seats.

Recently I bought power leather seats from a member on this board. The seats were out of a '01 V6 EX Coupe. I have a '98 I4 LX Coupe. Needless to say, I have cloth, manual seats.

The passenger side was easy to put in because it is still a manual-manual swap.

But the driver side is an 8-way adjustable seat, whereas I have manual. The problems I am having are as follows:

-The Alignment is Off (after powering the seat before putting it in the car, I tried to adjust it but the seat sits very far back even though I pressed it up all the way)

-Where does the wiring harness that would normally connect to the bottom of the seats actually go to? I can probably obtain one or make one if I knew where it went to.

-Would swapping the brackets/sliders from manual seat onto the power seat actually work? Would the bolts line up? This would be an easy solution instead of powering the seats as I dont care about power.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Oh and I am located in central Jersey if anyone wants to be nice and help me out with it (I'll buy you lunch). Thanks.

the coupe to coupe swap should bolt up..but i have no idea about the wiring harness..try switching the brackets like u think i bet that will work

that wiring harness just provides power i think..i'll check my repair manual this weekend when im home to see what wires are in it and where they go etc

I asked my buddy at the body shop, he said you should be able to just run a power/ground to it and it should work. Probably should have put the seat in the car adjusted it to where you want it and then had you take it home.
