Car seats can be easily worn out, especially without proper maintenance and protection. They're subjected to all kinds of abuse, including heavy weight and spilled food and drinks. On top of that, car seats are expensive to replace. So, car owners who don't want to be hassled must ensure that their seats are protected by a high-quality Seat Cover. Seat covers are used to shield the car seats' upholstery from damaging elements. Whether you spill coffee on your seat while rushing to work or food is accidentally thrown to the seat when you're on the road, dirt and stains will definitely find their way to your seats! It'd better if you're prepared with the right protection accessory. Seat covers also prevent sharp objects from ripping the whole car seat apart. Instead of directly ripping the seat and its upholstery, sharp objects would have to deal with the cover first. Apart from protection, seat covers also improve a cabin's interior appearance. With so many color ways and designs to choose from, a set of seat covers will surely match a car's interior design theme. In fact, you can find your perfect Seat Cover right here at Auto Parts Warehouse. We have an extensive catalog of seat covers from top manufacturers in the automotive aftermarket industry.

Take a Seat: Quick Tips in Seat Cover Selection

You can never be too picky when it comes to something that has an undeniable impact on your driving experience—the very thing you are sitting on. Your seat covers, other than adding comfort to your ride, protect your seats and do much to define the interior look of your vehicle. While your engine's components are subjected to intense heat, pressure, and friction, your vehicle's seats are subjected to stains, spilled drinks, dirty pet paws, wet bathing suits, heavy bags, UV rays, and the near-constant scraping passengers' backsides. Eventually, your ride's interior will sustain damage and look old and dilapidated. This is definitely not a problem you should take sitting down! These tips should make it easy to pick new seat covers.

Types of seat cover materials

  • Neoprene - Made from the same material used in scuba suits, seat covers made from neoprene are completely waterproof. They have a nice, cushioning effect, and are very easy to install and to clean.
  • Leather - These seat covers are good for that classic look. They are easy to clean since they don't absorb liquids and are resistant to UV rays. However they can get sticky on hot days and are quite vulnerable to wear.
  • Suede - Seat covers made from this material are a good alternative to leather since they are more resistant to wear. However, they are more vulnerable to UV rays and water.
  • Ballistic nylon - Made from the same material used to make flak jackets for WWII pilots, these seat covers are the toughest ones out there. They can withstand virtually anything. However, they are not as comfortable as other materials and, in some cases, also show more wrinkles.
  • Poly-cotton - Seat covers made from pure cotton and have the added durability of polyester offer superior comfort and are easy to install and maintain. However, these are not waterproof and won't protect from heavy dirt or moisture.
  • Velour - Also made from cotton or polyester, these seat covers offer the best in terms of comfort and luxury. However, they are not waterproof and thus offer little protection. They can also be difficult to install since velour does not stretch.

Universal/generic fit or custom-made

  • Universal seat covers - These are made to fit a wide variety of vehicle seats. If you're not very particular about the look of your interior, these can be a good choice since they are much cheaper than custom-made seats. However, the lack of a perfect fit can cause problems. Loose seat covers will give you a lot of wrinkles while tight ones are susceptible to tear. These seat covers may also interfere with air bag deployment.
  • Custom-made seats - These are designed for the specific make and model of your vehicle. They may be more expensive, but they give your seats a better look. You also won't have to worry about your seat covers getting in way of your side-impact air bags.

How to Install Seat Covers

Seat covers were designed to protect your car's seats from spoilage. With a variety of designs available in the market, a seat cover can make or break your car's interior design. They also undergo normal wear and tear, which makes them old and shabby. You can preserve your interior's pristine condition by installing new seat covers. Seat covers are easy to install and they add a custom look to any vehicle.

In this guide, we have prepared the tips, steps and tools needed to help you install new seat covers.

Difficulty Level: Easy

Tools that You'll Need:

  • Utility knife
  • Fine-tipped marker
  • Coat hanger
  • New seat covers

Safety Tips:

  • Make sure that you're working on a solid, level surface.
  • Have a first aid kit handy and be careful when handling sharp objects.
  • Check your replacement parts and make sure that they are compatible to your vehicle's make and model.
  • Always wear recommended safety equipment like closed-toe shoes, an industrial-grade dusk mask, safety goggles and gloves.
  • Check your vehicle's service manual before installing the new seat covers. These seat covers can interfere with the seat's built-in air bags. Make sure to locate them first before installation.

Step 1: Pull up the seat's headrest up to its highest adjustment. Pull harder until the headrest comes off.

Step 2: Tilt the front seats forward to make it easier to access the back seat.

Step 3: Place the seat cover over the seat and slide it all the way down. It should wrap the entire seat and make sure it fits snugly over it.

Step 4: Pull the seat cover all the way to the base. Stretch it a bit to cover the entire seat.

Step 5: Use the coat hanger to pull all the elastic loops found on the seat cover to tighten its fit over the car seat.

Step 6: Pull the elastic loops over the S-hooks to hold the seat cover in place. If the fit is a bit loose, stretch the loops further to tighten them. You may have to tie some ends to achieve a perfect fit.

Step 7: Locate the holes holding your headrest and mark them with a felt-tipped marker. Cut quarter-inch holes and make sure that they are parallel with the car's sides.

Step 8: Slip the cover over the headrest and push the headrest back into place. Make a visual inspection for creases and wrinkles.

Installing new seat covers will take about 30 minutes for an expert DIYer and an hour for a beginner. Have fun and add a custom look to your vehicle's interior.
