Non-powered to powered seats swap possible?

I have a 97 GXE with black cloth seats , driver's side is powered , passenger side is not. I want to do a black leather swap in the near future. Would this be possible ? Is it simple? I hate doing things to my car that involve modification and re-wiring (I always keep my cars stock-ish and just add bolt-ons) If it involves re-wiring, I'll just stick to the cloth seats

I think they are as well.. I would ask someone like Maxfever about this.. He parts alot of 4th gens so he must have seen weather if they are or not.

Crazydominican thanks bro^^

Not all 4th gens are prewired, most are many are not,

1.If you pull the seat out or just reach with your hand and see if you have the existing wires that plug right up, its a simple plug and play,

2.If the wires are not present its still simple enough, just take 2 wires tap them into the the drivers side plug which is coming from under the carpet and splice them into the passenger side seat, use electrical tape to cover them up, A piece of advice when running the new wires lift up the center console and tuck the wires under there so there are no connections interrupted ever, no additional fuse is needed since they share a common circuit, also theres is a way to add heated seats if anyone needs but that requires alot of work-but i can do it for anyone who needs it,
