Just grip the edge and twist and work your way up and around to about 2/3 above the armrest on the inside of the seat. It's real easy once you get a finger in to start the process. I highly recommend NOT using any trim tools at all.....fingers work fine.

The hardest part (and not really all that hard) for me was to get 2 fingers in a tight spot to unplug the old logo in the seat back. All told, around 25 minutes for both seats.
Nice work. They look great. Appreciate the input into the thread.

Enjoy!
Just replaced mine. If I can do it anyone can. Not nearly as bad as you think as others have said. Hardest part was plugging power source back in
30 mins. Only because had problem with zip tie that was only on passenger seat
