    Hi there,
    this is my last lesort cause no body seems to either know or want to help,I am wondering if anybody knows how to get that back bit off the front seats in a VT series 1, the whole section with the map pocket and lumbar support knob on the side poking through it, I have just bought leather seats with the suede backs on them they are both busted, and the seats I already have also have the sueded backs on them so I figured hey cool thats easy enough I will just swap em over and no worries..............wrong! firstly I cant figure out how to get the adjustment knob off the side, secondly the rest of the back off the seat, any advice short of a crowbar, or petrol and matches,would be great !!

    Just yank them off, the clips will break, go to holden and buy 4 new clips for $5. Replace and it is done. Takes about 60 seconds in all.

    when i did mine the adjustment knob simply pulled off...you might have to twist it to its start point but should come off.

    and as minux said with the backing just pull it down and out. it will snap the clips but new ones come with the new map pocket....just gotta be a bit rough

    some models have a clip similar to that of a window winder handle . You have to push in on the cushion to find the ends then use a screwdriver to gentle pust the clip out.
