Cushion: Start with the cushion upside down, and work your way around the cushion sniping hog-rings, there are several of them. After you have removed all the attachments around the perimeter of the cushion, fold the cushion up to reveal the inserts. Snip the hog-rings for the inserts, and remove the cover. Be patient, as there is a ridiculous amount of hog-rings in the seat cushion. Installation is the reverse of removal. It is best to start with the Leatherseats.com cover inside-out and hog-ring the inserts first. When you get to the edges, fold the cover over the foam. Then, hog-ring the perimeter of the cushion where the factory attachment points are and you’re finished!
Backrest 40% Section: First, unhook the J-clip at the bottom of the carpet. Then, pop the plastic clips that hold the carpeted back to the seat. Remove the plastic trim where the seatbacks latch to the car (See picture #9). Fold the carpet forward, revealing hog-rings around the perimeter of the backside of the seat. Snip the hog-rings and then roll the cover off the foam to reveal the insert hog-rings. Snip these hog-rings and the cover should fall off of the foam. Installation is the reverse of removal. Start with the cover inside-out, and hog-ring the inserts first. Then roll the cover over the corners and hog-ring the perimeter in the factory locations. You will need to make the new holes for the plastic pushpins underneath the carpet. The hole for the latch will need to be cut, as well as the trim piece re-installed. Make sure you cut it no bigger then it has to be.
Backrest 60% Section: The process is the same as the “40” section, but in addition, you have an armrest. To remove the armrest, there are two plastic pushpins, and two nuts (See picture #10). Remove the nuts and the pushpins, and the armrest will be free. You will have to remove the staples from the hard backing, and reinstall it on the new cover. You will also need to remove the hinge assembly from the armrest. There are two bolts that hold the hinge on. Make sure you pay attention to the order of the bushings, or else the armrest will not fold properly. You will also need to remove the cup holders from the armrest. Pry them up from the front, making sure not to break the clips (See picture #11). The factory cloth/leather is held in by a few hog-rings. Remove these and start to roll the cover off of the armrest. The installation of the Leatherseats.com cover is the reverse of removal. You will need to cut the holes for the cup holder after the cover is installed. Again, make sure that you do not cut the holes too big! You will also have to staple or glue the cover to the hard backing. We used 8mm staples.
Backrest Bolsters: The bolsters are very easy! The covers are held on by staples and a plastic clip. Just remove the staples and unhook the clip, and the cover is off! The installation is the reverse of removal. Put the cover on inside out, roll the edges over making sure the seam lines line up with the foam, and staple the edges of the covers. We used 10mm staples. The final step is to put everything back into the car. It is generally easier to install the rear seat first.
