Are there any tricks to getting the vinyl portion out from under the plastic front with these integrated seats?
Or once I remove the staples and lift the vinyl will it become obvious?

the last sled I owned was a 2001 an drhe older seats then that I did the seats just covered the tanks and when removed the the tanks remained , if you cant get a awnser here look for a sdnomobile forum and ask in=m sure you can find out that way

I haven't owned a sled in years and don't do many seats here (no body knows we do them) . Is this one like the polaris seats were the tank and the seat base are one molded plastic unit? Can you post a picture? Once I see it I should remember how it goes.

Generally speaking; all you should have to do is pull the visible staples, take the nuts off the wire in the listing at the front (if done that way), and release the pull that holds the vinyl down were it rises up at the back. It could be stapled or a buckle passed through a slot.

How far are you from the International Peace Gardens? I'm an hour north in Brandon.

I always tell people to bring me the seat, so that it becomes their problem to get it off. Never had a problem with this policy.

Just the other side of the snow bank from here. Two hours to the 'peg and a south---just down the road.
