    How to remove the plastic trim on passenger side (UK) seat lever?

    I am trying to change the front leather seat covers on my sister's Saab 9-5 Estate. The passenger seat has a lever on the side and I am not sure what it does. To remove the plastic trim at the base of the seat I have to take the plastic trim off of this lever. It seems that I need a magic wand as it does not want to budge. Does anyone have any ideas of what I need to do to get this plastic trim off? I will post a picture from my iPad after I have posted this question (am on my Laptop at the moment).

    Oh, you're welcome! I did that because there were no videos of it that I could find. It took me 2 hrs or more to figure that out! It's easy once you know how though!!!!!
