So, putting Recaros into a 2015 Evo requires using the seat belt buckles that came with the car (I guess something is different with the wiring?). What about putting Recaros in an older (2011) Ralliart that did not come with Recaros? Would the seat belt buckles from the original seats need to be used as well?

I believe so.

I think anything going from Lancer GT seats to Recaro (or vice versa) requires you to keep the original buckles. It seems the Lancer GT buckles are 4 pin and the Recaros are 2 pin (same connector though). Not sure what the other wires do, besides cause problems during the swap.

i just did a swap from a red leather recaros and i swapped with a 2011 Evo x. even swapping over my rails/weight sensors my air bag light is on. any one have a fix for this?
or do i have to clear the code at a dealership or maybe just install resistors? they only thing i did not do was swap over the old driver seat buckle. could that maybe why the air bag light is still on? i see most people not having to do that to the driver seat but maybe the 2015 are different and need that?

guys just an UPDATE. i did not swap over my OEM buckle on my driver side. After swapping them back over my air bag light went off. a lot of people are unclear.

you will need to swap over for a 2015 X your driver side buckle only, for the pass side. you need to swap the bottom base with your weight sensors, and belt buckle. after that you should be good to go. enjoy not having your air bag light on.

So I replaced the stock 2015 Lancer seat with a Recaro off an earlier model X and I'm getting the airbag service required.

This is probably for the weight sensors.

My question is: the Recaro weighs a good amount more than the Lancer seat. Even if I swap the sensors, I think the ECU will think there's always someone sitting in it. So would I be better off just reprogramming/recalibrating the Recaro sensors?
