    The main difficulty will be the seat base frame - there is no way that a passenger side frame will fit to the mounting points on the drivers side.

    The easiest solution would be to swap the...

    It is possible to improve the access to the clip that holds the bracket in place by loosening some of the bolts/brackets holding the air con pipes in the engine bay ; this allows a little more leeway...
