    It's pretty simple, you just slide the top of the seat on, push the bar into the gap between the vertical part of the seat and the horizontal part, then put on the bottom part of the seat cover.

    The only problem I have is to push the bar into the gap, it's very very very hard, you need to be strong, do I need to remove the bar from the seat cover?

    is your bar in two pieces like mine was? When I put mine in, I put the outsides in first, with the middle sticking out, then I just pushed really hard in the center and it just popped right in. it took me a couple of tries though.

    Oh only the passenger seat cover have the two bar piece but the driver side have a whole bar, I have not yet tried your solution with the outsides first, but how can id o if it is a whole one?

    I'd just slide one end in as far over as I could, then push the other end in, if that doesn't work, find somebody stronger to do it for you.

    I just got these and yes they are very hard to install. There have been some suggestions as to insert the bars first, then strech the cover over the top and then the bottom. That is what I did, and it was easier to put the bars in, but very difficult to strech the top over the seat. Mine came with a bunch of creases, I hope they go away.

    Just remember not to install seat covers if you have side airbags :)

    I just installed the TRD seat covers this evening. I found if you use the handle of a hammer to push the bars in, it works really well. You do have to push hard though.

    The creases do go away after time.
