The issues will be the height adjusment will need movig to the other side,new trims will need to be bought.Same with the lumber dial and the seat reclining dial.The handbrake is welded to the the seat box,so would need to be drilled/cut off.The cables that adjust the above are located in the seat and are on different sides for the passenger and drivers seat.
It might be possible though.
