2013 Crew Cab - How do you pull "back" of seat away from wall to install seat covers

I have a 2013 Crew Cab SV and my new Custom Seat Covers just came in the mail from Coverking.

I went outside to install the new custom fit seat covers and I could not figure out how to pull the backrest away from the back wall (area under the rear window) to get access to the back of the rear seat. I know that I can pivot the bottom up to get access to the storage bins by pulling the side lever up, but how do you either tilt the back of the seat down or pull the seat forward to slip the backrest cover over the seat ??? The seat-back is very tight against the rear wall and I can not even squeeze my hand back there.

I sure hope this is not an embarrassingly obvious way that I missed

There is a nylon strap at the top of the seat by the shoulder area next to the headrest. Pull it. Driver side is by the left shoulder, passenger side is by the right shoulder. By the way, your factory jack and spare tire hardware are back there. I would use this time to learn how to get the jack out instead of finding out when you actually get a flat.

Oh my gosh !!! I knew I would be embarrassed

I just tried it and it was so easy. THANK YOU !

Yes that would have been horrible if I would have needed that jack and not known how to access it in the middle of the night.....The dealer probably should have demonstrated this at the time of purchase.

Thanks again. I will install my new seat covers this weekend thanks to your help.

The jack does not just slip out. You need the tools to compress the scissor lift enough so it will dislodge, then it comes out. Try it.

It's both amazing and sad how few vehicle owners actually know what the book in the glove compartment is for. In the time it takes for many questions to be typed on an internet forum, the answer can be found in the owners manual.

Besides that, reviewing the owners manual should be a priority after getting the vehicle home for the first time.

I find the manual to be fairly convoluted when looking for things. I read through it when I got the truck, but for searching, it's kind of a pain. I downloaded it from the nissan.ca site and I have it on my desktop to search anytime. Using the search function makes things so much faster too.
