94-04 rear seat upholstery removal

What’s up everyone, Jay here with LMR.com. Today we will be going over the steps on the removal of your factory rear seat upholstery covering all 94-04 applications.


This video will cater to anyone planning on doing any new upholstery kits on their 94-04 Mustangs. Knowing how these come off first will help you overall on the installation of the new upholstery. Follow along and we will show you how this one is done.


First start by removing the rear seat bottom and backs from your mustang.

Moving over to a clean work bench, start by flipping the bottom section over so you can see all of the attaching points on the upholstery to the seat foam.


Starting on the center seat belt buckle area, clip all of the hog rings holding this in place.

Now you can move to the entire perimeter of the upholstery. I started in the center and slowly worked my way around removing each hog rings holding the upholstery in place. Take your time here and carefully clip these away so you do not damage the foam.

Once you have verified all of the hog rings are out you can locate the inner velcro on the foam holding the upholstery in place.

Slowly work your way around and release the upholstery away from the foam.

On the inner edge closest to the seat belt buckles you will find another few hog rings here. These will hold the listing rods to the foam in this area. Clip these away as well and then you will be able to fully remove the upholstery from the foam.

PLEASE NOTE- DO NOT DISCARD THESE LISTING RODS WITH THE OLD UPHOLSTERY, YOU WILL NEED TO TRANSFER THESE OVER TO THE NEW KITS NORMALLY.


Moving to the seat backs, remove the upper latch trim by removing the four small Phillips head screws that hold this in.

Now we can go to the lower edge and you can locate the J-clips. What I do on these is I will take a small flat bladed screwdriver and release the male end of these hooks on one edge. Once you have this started, you can slowly work this away from side to side to fully separate this.

You will now be able to see your flaps on the inside, these will be held in place by one hog ring. Clip this one to release.
