Have a 2019 XLE. Getting seat covers and want to make sure they don't get in the way in case the seat/side airbags deploy.

From my research, seat airbags that deploy from the side seams along the seat's backrest will usually a SRS tag sewed along the seams where the airbag will be deployed. The side seams are designed to tear away when the airbags deploy

EG:

W/ the RAV4, the SRS logo is printed on plastic cover's side beneath the car seat. Does anyone know where the seat air bag deploy from?

thx

I believe there are airbags in the seat. There are also airbags along the top of the doors in the handle areas.

In all of my wire tracing and trim pulling I’ve noticed airbag wiring is yellow wrapped and there are some under the seats.

They look good, any chance you have heated seats ? wondering if you can still feel the warmth ? thanks
I don’t have heated seats, but I think I remember seeing on the amazon reviews that people could still feel the warmth from the heated seats.

Thanks for sharing this pic; they look great. Can you also share the pic of the backseat? Also a quick question, did putting the cover on the back seat involved removing the back seat bench? Thanks.

Well... I haven’t installed the backseat covers yet actually. But it does seem like I may have to take out the back seat based on some of the reviews. I have 2 young kids and was waiting until they grow out of their car seats before installing.

Thanks VinnieC - I have ordered the exact same set from Amazon too for $199; seems like if you select 2021 Toyota RAV4 to check if it fits, then the system tells you it does not even if the description shows 2021. I took a gamble anyway, going to see if they fit.
