Hi all little problem with my wingbacks

Post by Sunshine88 » Thu Dec 27, 2018 10:14 pm

On Both front seats the trimming is coming off the back is there any way of pushing it back in to place?? Is that how it has to be done or is there clips??
Thanks for any help

No clips, it is just tucked in. I've never had any issues just tucking it in by hand on the easy to reach areas. Might need to pull it a bit to make sure there is enough edging to tuck if it doesn't go in willingly.

Stop calling them wingback, too.

A wingback can be a blocker, receiver and/or runner of reverses. The wingback is positioned one yard off the line of scrimmage and right outside the tight end.

Slacken the bolsters off so they’re on their widest setting and you’ll find it easier to tuck them back in.

All of them (including lumber) on both seats?
Mine did when I sold the car but I spent a lot of money on new valves and new bags / hoses. Doubt many cars have a full working set unless they have been maintained.
