Definitely should be faster when I tackle the driver's side.
Now I know the correct order to remove the upholstery, and how to remove the motor cover that is used for moving the seat back and forth, I did struggle a little bit with that in the beginning.
The bottom part comes off completely, ie it can be remove from the frame easily ( as you can see in the first picture), so this will make it easier remove the top upholstery once the bottom part is removed. It was by accident that I found out you can remove it from the frame, and by then I had already struggle to remove the top upholstery while it was still tied to the frame.
The air bag is another one I struggle with to get it in there. It goes inside a pouch that is attached to the leather cover. What makes it difficult is you have to insert the airbag inside the pouch first, then pull it inside the foam, then bolt it in, and then attach the hog clips. The trick is you have to insert the airbag before you try to put the leather on, then slide it through the hole and bolt it in.
The bottom part is easy, but the top part is very hard because it has lots of hog clips and it is a tight fit.
I think I made the wrinkle worst on the top part...
The trick here is to not stretch too much the leather as you slide it in. The leather itself conforms to the shape of the foam already, so no need to stretch it to fit.
