Unless you are a very advanced DIY'er, only venture this. I have removed, HAD repaired , and replaced many seat covers over the ears, and unless you own a air of hog-ring pliers, you will play hecktiger getting i back together. Having said that, and I have not done a 2011 Camaro, (they are all similar) this is what I "see":
Disconnect any electrical connections.
From the floor, disconnect the 4 bolts holding the seat into the car. If the seat belts are threaded or attached to the seat, disconnect them.
Take the seat out, being careful not to ban or scrape anything in the process.
Lay the seat upside down on a covered bench (an old blanket will do) The underside of the seat will be exposed so you can see the springs and the Hog Ring Connections. Here is where t gets fun: with a pair of pliers in one hand (BTW- a hog ring looks like a circle of wire with sharp points on each ending. It starts as a staple, but when crimped, becomes a little circle about a half-inch in diameter) and a screwdriver or another pair of pliers, move the ring so you can see the points. You will twist each ring, and there are a lot of them, so as to open them up and roll them out of the leatherette like one would do to unhook a hook. Inside the leatherette at that connection is a long wire that is sewn into the fabric for reinforcement. These connections hold everything tight when it gos back together and must be replaced the exact same way or the new leatherette will rip and you'll have to start over or live with a bad installation.
Now continue on at each hog-ring and do this over and over and over again until the cover is loose and free of the bottom cushion. If you have adjusting handles, etc, those will also have to be removed.
Installation is in reverse.
The Hog-Ring pliers hold each hog ring neatly like a staple until it is squeezed into and AROUND the wire reinforcement at the location o each original anchoring point. It is IMPERATIVE you note the anchoring places and methods of each and every hog ring.
Once the ring is placed, carefully squeeze the pliers until it forms a ring and anchors the reinforced piece in its proper place.
Take it slow, allow the leatherette to stretch and breathe, and make sure you have it on in the right spots. As long as you don't rip anything, it should go back together as long as you are patient.
This is not a fun job for most people, but as you can "see" it can be done. YouTube has a bunch of videos on seat fixes, but this one mimics what you may encounter.

Again, having said all this, a local seat shop might be able to repair what you've got with much less effort, but if you are determined, and creative, it can be done.

Replacing severe


cebd8d08-0b93-4be4-a8ba-b0eb7c57df3a.jpgCheck connections under passenger seat.
The SRSCM sets DTC B1322 if
there is any fault in Weight Classification System.



In contrast to the initial
one-stage airbag systems, newer restraint systems involve complex logic to
select, or alternatively suppress, various levels of safety system deployment.


Inherent to an advanced
Restraint System is the ability to discern information regarding passenger
occupancy.


It is intended that these
inputs be provided through the weight measuring OC system.


The object of such safety
system is to reduce the risk and level of injuries by automatically adapting the
airbag(s) and seat belt pretensioner to the driving status of the vehicle, its
occupants, and the crash severity.


The current OC system covered
in this specification continually senses and classifies the front passenger side
seat.


OCS is utilizing a robust
weight measuring technology. Thus, if any of the following conditions occur,
'command zero' and 'accuracy check' should be performed


The weight classification ECU
or any of the sensors is replaced.


The vehicle is brought to the
repair shop due to an accident or a crash even though the severity seems to be
minor.


The passenger airbag ON
indicator is off (not illuminated) when the passenger seat is not
occupied.


The passenger airbag ON
indicator is delayed more than 10 seconds before turning off when an adult
passenger is seated in the right front seat.


The passenger seat is removed
from the vehicle and re-assembled.


Any accessories (side table,
seatback table and seat cover, etc) are replaced or installed.

Water leak on rear floor board 2011 camaro convertible


I had water behind the seat under the rug and it was the bladder in the car. The water runs off the convertible top and into a bladder that directs it out through the bottom of the car. My bladder/hose broke/came apart and therefore water was now coming into the car under the rug with no visible water coming down the inside of the car. It was fixed by Chevrolet a year ago and now the other side must have let go because again I have water under my rug behind the other seat. I am less than pleased. Car is going into Chevy this week and I will again demand that the rug be replaced after the problem is fixed. If I didn't love my car so much I would leave it there because I am furious that this has happened again
