Questions regarding seat covers

Q: Is it easy to install the seat covers?

You will be able to install the seat covers with the included manual particularly made for your car model.
(For some models, a common manual is provided)

Our design concept is such that the fitness to each model is highly valued. So, the cover can sometimes be a little tight. You do not take off the seat itself to install them in general. (except for some sedan models)
Use the included vinyl to cover the back rest of the seat first and then cover the seat cover on top of it. This eases the friction and makes it easier for you to install.

Q: Is there any tip in installing the seat covers?

Firstly, you are advised to check the positions where the seat edges and the seat cover edges meet by placing the cover on the seat temporarily for this purpose.
Although we just cover the seat with the seat cover, not fitting it properly would cause slacks and creases.
By confirming the edges to meet, we can fit them properly and the seat cover looks superb after the installation.

Secondly, keep the directions of sew up margins uniform. Seat covers are made by sewing pieces of fabrics. So, there is always a margin under the seams.
Especially for covers for small parts such as headrests and armrests, making the direction of sew up margins uniform creates beautiful sewing line. If the sew up lines look wavy, take the cover off and check the sew up margin's direction.

Q: How can I clean the seat covers?

Please take a look at the maintenance page as each fabric used for seat covers need different types of care.
