2017 FR3 DS30
My wife and I recovered them.
1st, unscrew the pegs that are above the cushions, that hold the blinds down. Flip the blinds up to keep them out of the way.
2, lift straight up on the seat backs. All 3 of them will come out with no problem (should).
3, use batting to fill in the low spot where the lumbar and seat back are. We used a spray on glue from the local craft store. Let dry until the glue over spray is tacky.
4, recover the seat backs. the only tricky part was getting the corner folds (we have 2 in ours) to look good. we stapled the new material over the old, and the new batting. we used 5/16" staples to hold it all together. Make sure you don't cover the holes that the seat back reattaches to.
It really was that simple. We went with a grey color that turned out pretty well with the rest of the brown.
My wife ordered some covers for the seat cushions that are slip on, and closely match the colors.
I hope that helps!
Edit: Ours weren't just flaking.... they were peeling off and looked like hammered dog poop. Small pieces of plastic were everywhere after we got back from a log road trip. The loveseat and both front seats were also peeling apart.
