Default REMOVING SEAT COVERS: HOW? 2006 Ranger

Can any one tell me just how to go about removing the seat covers in my 2006 extended cab 2x2?

The seats both fold forward and slide forward individually and there is a folding up/ fold down glove box console in the middle between the drivers seat and the passengers seat.

I want to get them off get them washed detailed and put back in>

Any help is appreciated.

Best regards,

Oldsoldier

Take some pictures of your seats and post them here.

I recently replaced the upholstery on my 2002 standard cab with leather.

However I think the 2006 is different.

Either way the process is fairly easy.

Does the 2006 have air bags in the seat?

My truck belonged to the owner of a junkyard and hadn't been washed (or safety inspected) in four years. It basically just hauled junk around the yard. The cab was full of junk, the seats were coated in dust and what appeared to be used motor oil had spilled on both the driver and passenger side.
I pulled both seats out, disconnected the plastic fasteners, peeled off the seat covers, hosed them down and then went at it with Purple Power engine degreaser and laundry detergent with a potato scrubber brush. Hosed them down again, let them dry in the sun and they look practically brand new. Considering they are 23 years old, not too shabby. Oh and once they were dry I took a grinder with a cutting wheel to the driver seat frame, converting the setup from 60/40 to two bucket seats. I used a electric meat knife to cut the foam down and then cut the upholstery and re-sewed it to conform to the bucket seat configuration.
Next step will be to put in a center console.

I had my interior detailed and they pulled the seats and used a power washer on them and they came out like new,I just drove home sitting on towels and blew fans in the interior for about 24 hours and they dried great.
