Fitting Instructions

Congratulations on your new set of Black Duck SeatCovers! Let’s help to get you ready for your #blackduckadventure!

To Start

  1. We recommend unpacking each seat separately to avoid mixing up the driver,  passenger and rear seat parts. Remove the covers from the packaging and lay them out to check that you have all the correct parts.

You should have:

  • Seat base
  • Seat back (sometimes base and back are attached)
  • Headrest
  • Armrest (if applicable)
  • Each piece is identified on the inside with a white label. On the Drivers and Passengers label there will be a ‘D’ to indicate driver and a ‘P’ to indicate passenger. If you have seat fitted airbags the teal airbag label will go on the outside / window side of the seat
  • Vacuum your original seats and remove anything from the seat pockets.

Fitting the seat base:

  1. Slide the cover over the seat, ensuring it is clear from any levers and buttons and line up the seams and massage into place.
  2. Once the cover is in line with the seat push the center flap through the seat base until you can see it pop out the back of your seat. (In some models you may need to detach the carpet on the back of your seat)
  3. Pull the side flaps around and attach to the center flap, again check to make sure none of the seats levers and buttons are obstructed.
  4. If included, pull straps under the seat clearing all tracks and fittings. Pull tight and fasten to opposite side – test movement of seat to ensure nothing is obstructed.
  5. Base completed.

Fitting the seat back:

  1. Remove headrest (if applicable)
  2. Slide cover over the top (like a jumper) make sure the back of the cover does not catch in the pocket on the back.
  3. Line up the seams of the cover to the seams of the seat and massage into place.
  4. Push the flap through the base of the seat, just like you did with the base.
  5. Pull through tight and attach to the back of the seat.
  6. Replace the headrest and slide cover over the top and secure the flaps. This will be a tight fit so make sure you have the seams lined up.
  7. Back complete.

Repeat this process for the passenger and rear seats.

Once you have had your covers for a couple of weeks, we advice that you re-tension them as they will mould to the shape of your seat. This will leave you with the best fit possible.
