Default Replacing Double front seat with a single seat

I have succumbed to SWMBO desire for a single front seat and have acquired one second hand. I now need to seek your advice on changing them over.
Is it as simple as unbolting the double seat and then refitting the single seat on the same mountings.??
I understand that there will be some electrical re-connections to be done.
Is the job a DIY one or should I take to to a dealer?
Many thanks in anticipation of your advice.
Tony

Easy job mate, electronic modules just undo from double seat, new seat base on. It will be obvious when you look at it and take about 20mins

Thanks for your prompt reply. I'll have a go over the next couple of days, if only to get some peace and quiet from the kids!!
Thanks for your help.

I think you'll need a T20 Torx driver to unscrew the electrical box from the double seat.

Thanks Bobley. I found that out this morning as I tried to change the seats over and found one electrical lead firmly fixed to the bracket. Once I found that Torx bit and removed the part, it was a simple changeover.
Now going to check over and update my tool kit to make sure that I have suitable items for the VW.
Happy New Year to you all
Tony
