    hi again
    I just wondered if anyone knew how to remove the cab seat covers as I would like to clean them.
    I have trawled the Internet but couldn't find any help.

    Many thanks

    What base vehicle. If it is a ducato they are easy. They are held in with someting similar to a piece of plastic binder like you use to hold A4 sheets of paper together when you make a presentation.

    Sorry, yes I forgot to mention it is a Fiat Ducato. I have removed the arm rests and can see that Velcro holds the back but not sure of the base

    The base is held on by a U shaped piece of plastic. The U is unequal the longer edge is sewen the the seat cover it then simply clips over the sheet metal of the seat base. If you folow the fabric down the seat squab and put your hand under the seat you should feel the end of the trim. Press down on the side of the seat base and you will be able to unclip it.

    Well I have got three of the armrest covers off but the fourth one I can't get the adjuster out and my fingers are sore now so will try again tomorrow.
    The seat back looked like it was Velcro fastened but there is some sort of bar in the folds of the bottom of the seat back. Still struggling with the seat base and it looks like previous owners have given up. Did you manage to get the seat back covers off?
