i would say no to having to take apart the seat.

the back is a separate piece from the seat, by adjusting the position of the backrest, you should be able to pull the seat cover around the backrest.

You might need to warm up seat covers to get to fit.

You shouldn't have to, I have Coverking Neoprene custom covers and they fit over the seat just fine. Had to remove the headrest thats it. They buckled right underneath the seat. Good luck!

You can shove the velcro through the gap between the seat base and seat back. There really is a way to do it, try shoving your hand in there first.

The velcro will stick to the fabric of the seat and be a real PITA. I got around this by shoving a plastic bag through first so the velcro couldn't get to the fabric.
