Re: DIY Katzkin install. Never again.

Re-covering the headrests is the only part that I'm uncertain about right now. They look like they will be a PIA

I'll post pics of my before and after as well as some tips that will help future installers

Re: DIY Katzkin install. Never again.

Any chance you remember how you removed the plastic pieces on the top of the seats that the headrests slide into?

There is a small hole in the side of the round plastic trim piece opposite of the adjustment side used to release the headrest from the seat. Using a pin or a stiff wire, I didn't have much luck with it. Ended up carefully prying up under the outside edge of the trim piece to expose the release. Once the headrest is removed, the guides in the seat can be removed.
