                                                                           seat Base
Remove the seat back from the seat base. To remove the seat back, locate the plastic
release lever located behind and at the base of the seat back. Press the release lever
down and detach the backrest. Unhook all the elastic straps securing the seat cover
to the base. Carefully remove the cover from behind the plastic housing of the mode
selector. The seat cover should now be detached from the seat base. To remove the
arm rest cover, unhook the elastic straps and lift the two plastic retaining strips over
the edge of the seat shell.

                                                                         front panel
Unfasten the two Velcro straps positioned behind and on each side of the front panel.
Carefully slide both sides of the front panel out of the side channels located in the
side housings of the seat. This is made easier if you slide the front panel evenly and
the seat back is removed from the seat base.

                                                                           Headrest
 Adjust headrest to the highest position. .Unfasten the 3 press studs at the back of
the headrest. Unhook the 2 elastic straps at the top of the headrest. Remove the outer
sides of the cover from the Velcro attachments. Very carefully remove the cover which
is tucked behind the polystyrene insert. The cover should now be detached.


                                                                     Back panel
Locate where the cover wraps round the top of the tubular back frame and remove
from the Velcro attachment. Carefully slide each side of the back panel from the
channels located in the back of the side housings. (This is made easier if you slide
the back panel evenly and towards the top of the back rest)




                                                                                           13
