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.

IVe go to some left over charcoal grey leather material if anyone needs patch material.
