I am replacing a seat panel on the drivers seat. I am using a stock replacement panel too. The one your ass sits on. Advice, and what tools are required would be a great help.

I have no advice....but would like to know where you got your replacement at.

Dealer... it cost a fortune $340
But a person sat in my car with a screwdriver in the back pocket so they are paying.

easiest to remove the seat. tools are dikes, and hog ring pliers make it alot easier. you could just use regular pliers though but that would be a pain.

I would like to know how to remove the back panel on the drive and passenger seats without breaking the clips.

I would suggest to take it to a local upholstery shop. I have a shop about two blocks from me that restores old cars. I went in there and they guy quoted me $100 to replace the top left cheek piece that is warn in my car. But since you've already purchased it, that doesn't help. Maybe see if you can find a similar shop to just R&R. Props on trying to DIY though.

My passenger seat back has the clips broken off(from previous owner), I've looked and I can't see a way to get it off without breaking it. All I can suggest is to lift up on the bottom as hard as you can and hope that it bends and gives you enough clearance to release the clips.
