Yes it has been done, can be a bit fiddly, they use hog rings to secure the foam to the base.
I used cable ties on refit, think a few others has also done it this way.

Upgraded Eberspächer booster heater  to independent heating with 7 day timer.

With VCDS lite (full version) need a code clearing or want to scan for faults in the north kent area, PM me.
All for a pint of Strongbow.

Thanks for that but changing the foam is now what I meant I want to remove the complete base as one part and replace from another seat Not just the foam

Ahh that's easy, there are 3 bolts and a circlip per side that hold the top of the seat to the base. You'll have to to thread out the airbag wiring but that's strait forward. If you have heated seats then you'll have problems as the top is fed from the bottom so will require the covers off as Chris talks about.
