Knowledgebase: Seat Cover FAQs
Are your seat covers tailor-made for my specific vehicle?

Our seat covers are not "vehicle specific". They are deliberately sold as “universal”, which means that they’ll be an excellent fit on a many cars, at least a good fit on most cars, but only an adequate fit on others.  There is inevitably some compromise, but Walser have built their enviable reputation by using their knowledge, experience, and technical fabrics to achieve a good fit on almost every occasion.

The rear seat covers have been intelligently designed to fit a wide range of rear seats and accommodate seat belts.

Walser's patented "Clix III" docu-sewing-system emulates the seam in your side airbag seats.  Computer controlled equipment measures the thread tension, the thread denier, the thread composition and the stitch length, and if all is well it generates a unique code which is stitched into the front seat covers and recorded by Walser.  A Walser Clix III cover is tested on every approved vehicle seat type by TÜV Rheinland, which is a very substantial investment.

This is high tech stuff and using e.g. Velcro to hold the sides of front seat covers closed is entirely unproven and unlikely to work within the timescales required.  It should be obvious that fitting run of the mill seat covers to seats with side airbags is not a sensible option, and may have awful consequences...
