Step 1 move seats all the way back and remove the front 2 nuts using a long extention. Studs are fixed to the floor on front fittings.



Next move seats forward and remove plastic covers over rear fixings
Then remove the 2 bolts. These ones go throgh the floor and may by dirty or rusty.
Might pay you to spray these a day ahead with some tratment oil.

Push/tilt the now free seat forward to get to the electric plug underneath and disconnect it.



Next vacuum the carpet to get all the small bits that you have not been able to reach with the seats in?



Next make a temp seat so you can get the car in the garage. This bit was fun, so take care.

Caution Heavy

Use care lifting the seat out of the car as it is very heavy
then bring the seat indoors to drive the wife mad.
Also you can sit on it indoors and watch TV !





Gather tools needed

Remove the round-ish trim from the side of the seat, only 2 small cross head screws



This exposes the 2 bolts you will have to remove later, to split the seat, upper and lower



Remove long plastic trim along side of seat, only 2 small cross head screws again

Remove the 2 long cross head screws holding front switches in place
This will move but not come out yet, as it is held by the wiring

Stand the seat up and get help. Loosen the one Torx bolt at the other side at the hinge which is a Torx T45 star bit



Then with help, split the seat, leaving just the air hose attached at this stage

You can now pull the small bore air hose out of the fitting. One side is glued one is not?
The lower part of the seat has the glued fitting, so hold this and pull the tube out

Next on the upper seat, undo the long black plastic clip in prep for removing the cover.



You can now get you hand up the back and release the head rest.



Pull out the head rest and the black plastic trim / guide

Undo the 2 long Torx bit screws T27 holding the seat belt loop, and remove it.



You can now go ahead and try to remove the old leather cover. Get help and use caution as the seams are velcroed to the foam to hold its shape? If you get help to gently pull off the old leather, then you can reach inside and free up the velcrow as you go?

Old and new



Some of my velcro was slightly detached.




Now it the time to glue this velcro back in place as it holds the seams in shape.
