      Brian,
      I come to this forum to learn about cars, not about your personal opinions regarding women. What did you intend to gain by posting a derogatory quote like that here?

      Do It Yourself Car Seat Cover Removal

      Step one: Remove seat cushions from the vehicle in question, these came out of a VW Golf MK 4 if you need assistance in removing the actual seats, its fairly easy. I'm a petite girl and I had zero issues. The rear cushions basically pop off with one pull at the front tab and then unhinge from the rear. The actual rear top cushions need to be unbolted from the back. Same goes for the front seats. There are two bols in the front on the floor in the center .Once you remove the caps from the rear of the side rails, they just slide off.

      Step two: Flip the cushions over and find the black plastic that is tucked underneath the metal framing. The easiest way to do this is start at the exposed section and with a screwdriver
      pull a small peice out and then pull towards you. Do this all the way around and the metal frame basically falls off. It looks like this:

      Step Three:/ Starting at one side GENTLY pull the cover from the foam. As you start to do this you come to some channeling in the foam and those dreaded metal bars with the upside down bent into itself hook at both ends. I reccomend finding a good tool to pull with. I DO NOT reccomend undoing the hooks via manual distortion as you will need these again. This part requires PATIENCE. If you dont have the patience dont attempt this get someone to help you as you could destroy the foam cushion. I used a variety of tools until i figured out that a paint can opener of the metal variety works best. It has a little hook at the top and a bottle opener thing at the top and I think cost me $1 at Home Depot. It looks like this:

      Step four: Using the tool of your choice, hook into the metal loop at the top and pull slightly out note that I said out and not UP. This requires a little manipulation of the foam part but is pretty hands on, theres no real way to explain it, when you see it you'll understand. Try from a few angles I promise it just takes a little manipulation and not sheer force. I am a small girl and once I got the technique down it required very little actual force. I did not bend any of the metal rods in any way. They do not need bending to come off. I promise.

      Step five: Once you get the metal rod out of the channel flip it over and do the other side. I highly reccomend doing the two sides first and then the centers top, bottom, then middle as
      it makes the foam easier to manipulate. The rods just slide out of this little fabric pouch and can be set aside. Once you have these off you can wash the covers or reupholster them as you like. DO NOT PUT THE COVERS IN THE DRYER. Leave them out to air dry as it will probably warp the foam if it goes in the dryer.



      Replacement of covers is basically the same but backwards. I reccomend patience. I did it in a short amount of time. Once you get the hang of it, it is really quite a simple task.

      Anybody know how decent the red or blue color match is on lit reiger gear shift knobs? I've got an '05 TDi and don't want a gear shift that lights up different from my instrument panel. Anyone?

      Hey.... I need to replace the vent on the passenger side of my 2001 Jetta GLS. The flaps that control the up/down angle of the air flow are broken. Know where I can get a replacement and how to install it?
      I am the one who knocks.

      i have a question...my 1990 vw gti 8 valve has a leak on the passenger side right against the door panel under the dash. i have traced it to some sort of vent that is on the top left end of the hood. when i purchased the car, there was a window screen there which led me to believe it was rigged lol, but what is missing there and whats is causing so much water to end up on the passenger side floor?????

      thanks nolan

      Hey nolan, I am not a mk2 expert, but most VW's have a fresh air intake at that point. the screen was likely replacing the raised cover that prevents water from entering the heater box. I would start by checking under that part of the windshield. Then you will probably see where the water is entering the car.

      Hi
      Damaged the upper air vent trim on my Golf GTI MK V. Managed to buy a new one but am having difficulty removing the hazard light button and airbag warning light from the old unit.
      Do they just unclip (with a bit of force) of are special tools required?
      Thanks for any help.
