    Firstly its the backrest cover I am renewing as the Bolster had gone threadbare It was all going so well following the instructions Malc sent Seat out , trim off, Knobs levers off , Bottom half unclipped as per piccie below [​IMG]
    Malc the instructions I have from you only cover the seat removal and the Base not the Backrest Bit which is where I am stuck
    The problem relates to the next bits
    Headrest trim how do these come out ?

    and the trim at the top tucked in how does it come out see below
