Ok guys so i just picked up some leather seats, but i just got the covers so i can swap mine. I know there is a DIY, but i still don't know how to get the head rest things out of the seat. Not the head rest it's self, but the actually slots the headrest goes into. Any help will be greatly appreciated because i am stumped. lol

its just like the DIY says, you gotta take the back cover plastic off, and get up in there with needle nose pliers or a strong flathead, and theres a V snap that you gotta push in while pushing the whole thing up, its a PITA, but it does come out

very true, I did this 2 weeks ago, once you get the first clip out, the rest are cake.

I love the way the turned out, and they are sooo freakin comfy in the car. lol after I finished the first seat my cat ran in the room, jumped in the seat, and slid off into the wall.

ok simple enough. What about the plastic peice with the recline lever on it. How do i take that off? I got the other side off, but this side seems like it will break because of the lever. Thanks for the help BTW guys.

does the whole thing pop off though because it doesn't seem to want to come off on the back side. So it just snaps on and off after you take the screws out huh. Maybe i just need to stop being scared of breaking shi* and just do it haha

oopps i though you were referring to the top lever...
for the bottom one remove all the screws you see,
yea i did that, but after that is it just clipped in? In the DIY it didn't look like they came completely off. Looked like toward the back of the seat is still on there
