How to Replace an ATV Seat Cover

Remove the old seat cover

First off, you’ll need to start by removing the old seat cover. Unfasten the old cover and remove any old staples with a screwdriver and pliers. Remember to do this carefully as you don’t want to have a lot of metal laying around that can damage the new seat.

Staple the new seat cover

Take the new seat cover and attach it to the front of the seat with a few staples. After this is fastened, you can stretch the seat cover to the back of the seat and attach this part there. Ensure that you pull tight enough to lift the seat cover 2-3 inches from the center curve of the seat.

Attach the rear of the cover to the rear of the seat with another few staples. The front and the back will now be attached, but not touching in the center of the seat.

Apply heat and attach the center

Using a hairdryer or a heat gun, apply heat between the seat and the cover to allow for maximum stretch in the material.

Pull tightly and staple the center to the seat right where the seat begins to curve upwards. Apply two or three staples on each side, ensuring that you are pulling tightly.

Finish attaching and trim

Pull the material tight and finish stapling along the entire edge of the seat.

Once the seat is secure, you can trim any excess material with a box knife or pair of scissors.
