    Hi,

    How do I remove the standard cloth seat covers from my W123?

    I think I need to start by removing the trim from the back of the seat, but how do I do that and then what?

    How does the rear cover come off? I can't see any fixings.

    One phillips head screw right at the bottom. Once unscrewed back panel will slide down and can be eased out.

    Much easier if the seat is out of the car.

    I dealt with these guys: http://www.dclass.co.uk/

    I spoke with Dave. Very friendly and helpful but be warned, take a seat before you open their quotation!
