    It’s an easy job but as you’ve mentioned, you won’t find a replacement unless out of a passenger side seat that someone is breaking. A good upholsterer may be able to make you a new one based on your current one though

    Remove the seat from the runner, separate the back from the top by removing the bracket trim and securing pins, then you'll see the teeth that are holding the covers in place. Just peel them back gently with a flat trim tool or screwdriver and take it off. The bolsters then just lift off. Reverse to fit the new one, Job done.

    The only problem you'll have with removing the top, is the headrest leg trim things as they are quite difficult to remove from the seat backs.

    Be careful on the tilt handles when removing them too.
