by pulling very hard you may have stretched it a little causing it to wrinkle. from the looks of the cover it seems to be some kind of plastic. I would try a hair drier thats pretty hot it should shink it a little but DO NOT MELT IT!!! try it and let me know. (this is only if the cover is some type of plastic

Try heating the cover up with steam. If you dont want to try this find an auto apullstry shop. That is what i did with a seat cover a had for a dirtbike a couple of years ago. I think he charged me about $15.

ok i cant get the staples to stay in the seat. i got all the wrinkles out with a hairdryer, but as soon as you put tension on the cover to pull it taut, the staples just come out. i got the small 8mm size because the 12mm were poking through the seat. do you think maybe the 10mm would work, or would they just come out too? i spent $4 on these worthless staples already, and i'd hate to waste more money.

I just bought this seat cover from my dealer, and I can't seem to get the wrinkles out. would the dealer mechanics be able to do a better job? I'm pulling as hard as I can but just can't seem to get it smooth. any advice??

I also have one, not installed. I'd like to see how it turns out. I think it was in the direction to use heat gun. The reason I didn’t install it was because I didn’t know what to do about staples.
