Seat Trim Cover Replacement

Anyone know how to replace this piece - preferably without having to take the seat out if possible ...

This is where the missing part goes:




The old one is on the bottom - the arm is broken off. The new one is the one on top.

Sorry to tell you this, but you'll need to take the seat out and the bottom cushion off. Neither are that difficult.

Just remember not to turn the key on while the seat is off. Otherwise you may get a air bag light you cannot turn off.

Was able to replace this part today... Undid the bolts for the seat, leaned it up (didn't actually remove the seat from the car) and was able to take old broken part off and replace with the replacement part in about 20 mins ....
