Sport bar covers

How do you take off the cloth covers on your sport bars? I want to clean 'em up real good, but they seem to be stuck on by the seatbelt. Any ideas?

You have to take the seat belts off. Once you get them off you won't put them back on

Thanks. Any Ideas on how I would go about taking the seatbelts off? I looked at them briefly and didn't immediately see how, but it was dark too. I kinda wanted to avoid taking them off, lest I put 'em on wrong and send myself through the windshield at some point or another. Oh, well.

No real wrong way to install them. There is a cover by your shoulder that houses a Torx bit bolt. There is also one under the seatbelt housing by the floor. Once those are off and out of the way you have to remove the plastic trim ring around top. Then remove 2 more torx bit bolts that hold the adjuster to the roll cage. Then you can remove the covers.

and paintable!

I don't know. I've never tried cleaning mine. I always just cut them off and pitch them.

For a minute there I thought you were talking about the seatbelts.

What's wrong with a little simple green and some wiping? All you have to take off is the top, and chances are it's already off.
