Upholstery and seat removal/swapping?

I my dog was super stressed out on a recent trip, and decided that she needed to pee on my seat, probably a day to day and a half worth of pee, she refused to go anywhere else for some reason and decided to go when i left her for a minute, but anyways, i need to get that seat taken apart and cleaned since it reeks. Anyone know how to remove the upholstery, padding, etc? Also is it possible to swap the passenger and driver seats temporarily? I am sure removal of the seat is straighforward.

Unfortunately pet urine odors are VERY difficult to impossible to eliminate. You may need to buy a new seat cover and foam base to start nice and fresh. I don't see this as a wash and dry and all is well ending. Hope I'm wrong.

It's the foam more than the cover that will stink.

I do not disagree, however a pro detailer should be able to handle it if he is told that it is urine.

He might also know how to disassemble seat for more cleaning.

I am not talking a $20 fix, it's gonna cost some $$.
For that thought of dollar cost it might be more cost effective to replace the cover and foam and he'd be guarenteed that there wouldn't be a smell.
My brother in law left a window open in his Range Rover and his cat jumped into it and peed on the seat. The smell could not be removed and he replaced the seat.
It costs less to do it right the first time.

white vinegar mixed with a little water. then use a foam upholstery cleaner to clean the whole seat.
That could work but MUST soak in as far as the pee did to neutralize it, so I think the seat needs to be taken apart. Now if it's disassembled that would be the time to replace it.
Can you imagine going to all that trouble to find out there is still an odor and then do it all over again?
