Replacement of Morocco Leather Seats on Altitude

Has anyone had any experience with removing the standard 2014 Altitude seats and trying to salvage the original seats for resale? I am looking only for those with first-hand experience that they can share. Thanks in advance.

Sorry - clarification. Just the covers. That is, the dealership indicated that it will be difficult for Katzkin to replace the covers without damaging them.

Re: Replacement of Morocco Leather Seats on Altitude

No direct experience with this vehicle but I've had this conversation with the dealers before and most recently when adding leather to the 4Rrunner. OEM seat fabric is fitted, sometimes zipped or clipped, and also attached using adhesive, so they are telling you that as a basic CYA and because it's much easier to remove if you don't care about snipping seams and fabric to remove them.
