Zj leather seat skin removal???

Hey guys found a nice set of orvis leather seats in the junkyard,only problem is the the zj's windows are down and its bin there for awhile. So i know the foam is eventually gonna have mold etc. Is there anyway to remove the front and rear seat skins without destroying the leather????

You have to remove the seat, unbolt and remove the seatback, remove the hog rings, and unclip the seat edges. The leather cover and foam will come off as a unit but are easy to separate.

this shows how to fix the heated seats, but includes instructions how to remove the covers. when you actually take the seats out and look underneath them and stuff, youll see how to do it. Its really easy
