There is a youtube video on how to rehapolster the seats. I don't remember if it had that part of the process. Youtube, then search, type mgb upholstery.

Did mine about a month ago .. there wasn't any glue to remove. Can't really see why you would need to glue the cover to the foam ?

It is recommended to glue the bolsters to enhance the cover's acceptance of the shape/contour of the foam.
