Notice my sealed new Volvo seatcover for the back came wrong side out, but the bottom seatcover came right side out. It must come that way for a reason.
From June - yes, the seat back has to be started inside out and then pulled over the seat like a snake skin.

From bmw..I ended up with two extra holes, since I replaced the power seat skin with a manual seat skin.

The Seat tilt is on the right side, where it isnt too visible, and the lumbar hole is covered and will have to be cut. The old lumbar hole is too low and is on the outboard side, but it hides behind the B pillar for now.

Finally finished this one today while changing oil - about 3 minute job

Find the lumbar knob by feel

Small slice...June can lend you a Phillips screwdriver to punch a hole in that if you like

Stretch Naug over lumbar knob shaft

Outer collar

Thread on knob

Watch out for Carpenter bees.

Well, I have to say practice may not perfect but it certainly hastens the path

Second time around on a de-skin

Both passenger and driver seats on the 1998 in 3960 oak deskinned in 35 minutes

It was much faster remembering exactly where all the fasteners are and the technique - and a good set of dikes from Channel-LOck (tm) - proudly made in Erie PA
