Default my sorry write up attempt to fix the back of the front seat

So after about 45 minutes of trying to figure out how this repair kit worked I finally got it! here is a before pic

The only tool you will need is a Flathead screw driver
<img src="http://pictureposter.audiworld.com/73988/dsc00350.jpg">
and the repair kit for $22.17( no instructions included)
<img src="http://pictureposter.audiworld.com/73988/dsc00329.jpg">
<img src="http://pictureposter.audiworld.com/73988/dsc00330.jpg">
next pull the bottom of the plastic backing toward you and with the flathead screw driver reach up to the top of the plastic cover and push the screwdriver in between the metal backing of the seat and the pin on the plastic backing and turn to pop off the 3 clips
<img src="http://pictureposter.audiworld.com/73988/clips.jpg">
here is a pic of the top 3 clips/pins after removal
<img src="http://pictureposter.audiworld.com/73988/dsc00343.jpg">
Once the whole plastic back is off place the felt tape over the metal ends on the back of the seat
<img src="http://pictureposter.audiworld.com/73988/felt_tape.jpg">
Next slide the metal clips into the plastic area where the clips had originally been broken
<img src="http://pictureposter.audiworld.com/73988/tabs_go_here.jpg">
make sure you press down firmly so that they wont pop out
<img src="http://pictureposter.audiworld.com/73988/dsc00336.jpg">
now push the long ends of the metal clips in to make them straight
<img src="http://pictureposter.audiworld.com/73988/bend_clips.jpg">
<img src="http://pictureposter.audiworld.com/73988/dsc00344.jpg">
(Almost done) install the bottom first and make sure the 2 long metal ends go over the the metal plate where you put the felt tape and push down firmly but don't over do it, finally align the top 3 tabs with the holes and push in
<img src="http://pictureposter.audiworld.com/73988/slide_over_felt.jpg">
The finished project

Once I figured out what I was doing it only took about 15 minutes to do.

Default Not sure if you received my emails. I mailed out your turbo, and MTM injectors.

You will have them by Friday of this coming week.
