As the retrofit of the rear subwoofer in the vert continues slowly, i am now in need of some advice on how to deal with hogrings. I need to switch the covers on the back seat (due to the cutout in the foam for the speaker) and the donor seat having black centre panels.

Can anyone tell me the best way to remove the hog rings. I was considering using a rotary tool to cut them and use cable ties to refit, or is there a better option?

Many thanks

Just bend them open and work them around with a good pair of point nose pliers. I only cut them if I'm not reusing them, even then I use a good pair of snips.

I have only done the ones in the driver's seat. I snipped them with some big wire snips. Then replaced them with cable ties. The driver's seat got all the use and the cable ties were fine after several years.

Everything will be OK in the end. If it's not OK, it's not the end...
