seat cover removal

Has anyone removed the seat covers to wash them? I was thinking about making it my weekend project... guessing they use hog nose rings?

Yes, I've removed mine (replaced one,) but I've also removed the ones on my 1st Gen Insight to wash them. Good weekend project. Yes, they use hog rings, and it's a good idea to have the right tools, but I lost track of mine sometime over the years, so I just used pliers and cut notches in an old set of pliers to re-close the hog rings. Easier, and quicker way to reattach the covers is to buy a 50 count pack of zip ties, and secure them with zip ties instead of hog rings.

Did you have to have anything with the SRS reprogrammed? The service manual mentions it... dont want to worry about any lights

No, but I did have to have the passenger seat sensor reprogrammed when I swapped seats of my 2013 with a 2016 interior. Basically, the only thing I did concerning the SRS, was to disconnect the 12v battery before unplugging any connectors, and connecting the 12v back up after everything was reconnected.

Thanks for the tips man, I got the passenger side off... was kind of a pain but not too bad once I got about halfway through the clips. I think im gonna try zip ties... worse case scenario they pop off and have to replace with rings.

I am thinking about dying my covers with RIT dye while I have them off for all black cloth... do you know the material of them?

I'm interested in how this turns out. How are you washing them?

I just washed mine, normally, as with bath towels--actually added a couple bath towels to share the ride for balance, then tumble dried in dryer for 10-20 minutes. Worked out fine. Hope he has it all back together--takes a bit of work, but worth it in the end.

Omg... the gd seats.

I spent a couple fridays ago pulling apart 4 seats and swapping the black 2013 covers onto my 2012 seats. Pain in the butt. I had tiny little zip ties and I used those lol. My only gripe right now is that the 2013 driver seat have that stupid lever on top so when I swapped it over... I now have an empty hole there...
