    I am in exactly the same situation. Any further information would be most welcome. I am in the process of installing the workshop manual so if I learn anything I'll let you know.

    Edit: I just realised, this is a 1 year old thread (2013 duh!). Oh well.

    Hi,

    I have exactly the same problem. As it's my wife's car I feel the need to make a decent job of it and would really appreciate the seat cover removal instructions.

    thanks in advance
    Derek

    Unfortunately Malcolm (Television) passed away a few years ago,
    I would open a new thread with your issue and someone should be able to help

    There's a chance that @LostKiwi may be able to help as I believe he may have access to some/all of Malcolm's documents.
