My seat covers had no issues regarding loose threads etc I agree headrest covers could be better too. I found it very difficult to attach the plastic clip on metal rail under the front seats, then when I wanted to rotate the drivers seat it would only turn a few degrees then stop. Not sure if the cover was fowling but could not see anything. Anyway I managed to get it back to the correct position but since then not tried to rotate it to see if it's the same.Been meaning to post something about these, personally not over impressed with INKA, bought them through their ebay store, said 9 of the blue colourway in stock delivery 48 hours, ordered Friday, got confirmation email advising delivery Tuesday - Wednesday the following week. Several phone calls later discovered they were just being made. We had ordered them so there was time for them to arrive before we went on holiday. They arrived almost 2 weeks after placing the order, just time to fit before we went off.
There were no instructions, they forgot to include the cushions.
For the price not impressed with the finish as there were a lot of loose threads showing and seams are not overlocked or taped.
The bar on the front of the rear seat squab was not easy to get it to stay in place, and I had several phone conversations with their staff about how to get it fitted and they also told me how to fit the front seat covers.
I am still contemplating drilling some holes in the bar so I can use a cord to fasten it to the seat frame to pull it tight and stop it moving. The velcro straps were ok to fit when i realised taking the 'jack box' out and 'potholing' under the seat was easiest.
I was advised that to fit the front seat back you push the bulbous edge under the plastic trip at the rear of the seat. and likewise to hold the seat pad in place. it looked reasonable at first, until we went to turn the seat. their fitting method for the seat pad has flexed the plastic trims on the side of the seat so they scrape on part of the runner assembly as you rotate the chair, and the back rest cover pops out. Having said that the front seat covers do stay in place despite having popped out at the back.
I would have much preferred their design to be the more common method of a pair of big flaps you post through and attach to each other with some velcro. (even our old £15 lidl set did that and never moved)
Fitted they generally looked good to go on holiday, the headrest covers could be a bit better, but no cushions. I spoke to them again and they said they would get some dispatched straight away, I asked them if they could delay sending them as we would be away for 3 weeks, and were leaving the next day. We agreed on a dispatch date that was after we returned. Day 2 on holiday we received an email from the courier saying they were delivering the cushions the following day, thankfully they have a holiday holding option.
It just clips over the top of the plastic trim behind the turn lever. It's tight and looks to work as designed; it's a common securing method. Phot below may help. Not sure what metal bar is being spoken about above but as far as I can see anywhere else accessible won't turn with seat and thus will either rip the cover or stop the seat rotating more than a few degrees.where are you meant to attach the hook under the front seat? Thought I’d done it correctly but managed to rip it off turning the seat.
Why? Tell me to mind my own business if you wish but isn't the point of leather/alcantara that it is hard wearing and easy to maintain in as new condition? Why pay all that money only to cover it up? I can see the point of second covers over fabric seats but not leather/alcantara.Has anybody tried fitting the Inka second-skin covers to Leather/Alacantara seats?
Hi Carl,Thanks for that Borris.
We have just bought our first Cali Ocean from new. VW dealerships have been told to clear their current stock to make way for the new T6.1 Californias. We got a fantastic deal (over 20% off list price), but the one we bought already had faux leather/alcantara in moonrock grey. The exterior and interior have been treated with Gardx, so I'm assuming that it will be hard wearing and easy to maintain. However, it is very light grey and just wanting something more pleasing to the eye.
Thanks for putting these instructions on here saved them and will fix the straps under the back seat nowI got in touch with Inka a while back regarding the fitting of the covers. They don't come with any actual instructions. They actually sent me this PDF to show how they should be fitted. Should help you avoid having 300 dangly straps.
