Skill level:Moderate

Things you need

Instructions

1 Remove the headrests (if necessary) and push the back of the seat forward. Slide the seat cover over the top of the seat, and pull it down.

2 Grip the bottom of the cover and pull it so that it fits securely over the seat cushion. Fasten the elastic straps under the seat with the supplied "S" hooks.

3 Tie the supplied cord in place so that the seat cover maintains its shape. Check that the seat cover is properly installed and fits snugly.

4 Cut holes for the headrest with a knife, razor blade or scissors. The seat cover will stretch naturally, so do not cut the holes too big.

5 Insert the headrest back into the seat. The installation is now complete.

Tips and warnings

Most seat covers will fit tightly, but to ensure a secure fit, look for seat covers advertised as "snug fit."

Do not install seat covers on seats with airbags.

Wear safety goggles during the installation process.
