Wet Okle install tips...

Did a few searches and went to Wet Okle's site. Might still be a dumb question, but do we have to take our front seats out to install the seat cushion part? Seems impossible to get those straps to connect unless you take the seats out. Sorry Wet Okle's site only showed installing the rear. Thanks for any advice

Figured, pretty much unbolt the 4 bolts holding the seat and pull the sensors? Ha so much for some damn seat covers!

I almost pulled my seats out, but then just gave it a try with them in. I found that by adjusting the straps to their longest length, it wasn't too bad to get everything attached and cinched up. The first front seat, about 15 min. and the second about 5 min. The rear seats took about 10 min. total. I will agree with previous posts that it would be easier to put the covers on the seats with them out. I just didn't feel like doing it.

I just don't see how anyone can get their hand back there to connect straps etc. without taking them out.

It's definitely tight, but if you lengthen the straps as much as possible, you can get them to where they are pretty easily accessible, and I don't have skinny arms or very dextrous fingers. Not trying to bash the seat removal method though, it may just be easier for you to take them out.

Wet Okole

I've had Wet Okole on every vehicle, to include my Tacoma, never even crossed my mind to take the seats out. You can get them in there, trust me!
