The rear seats are held down in the actual seat part (where you sit and lay back) by lines of nylon that wrap around metal rods that attach to the base of the assembly where the springs are at. This ensures a tight fit and so the leather doesn't move anywhere. I haven't figured out how to attach the nylon well enough to those hooks and my hands get in the way. That and some of the hooks have detached (cause they're held in by staples) and it's a pain in the ass to reattach them cause the springs get in the way. L-Seat has made the slots where those metal rods slide in really strong so that's a plus. Getting the leather on is just a pain and I'm probably just doing it wrong lol. Haven't touched the front seats yet, kinda of scared just looking at them. I may just take all of the seats to a shop to be honest, been working on body work for one of my restos in the meantime.
Checkout the eSAABparts link for the WIS diagram. Rods labeled #7, #8 and #33 slip in to leather #1/2 and attach via the nylon strings to base part #3. The hooks are NOT pictured but reside on #3 attached with staples. On a trip right now but I can post a pic of it all when I get home on Friday.
