DIY: Rear seat removable

Postby jhuerto23 » Sat Apr 14, 2012 10:20 pm

Those of you that need to remove your rear seat for whatever reason and have the rear seat package which lets you lean the rear seats back for more comfort. Here is how you do it.

First Step the butt part, grab the front of the seat in the middle and pull up firmly, it should just come right off. If you have the rear seat package you will have to unplug the harness before you set the seat aside.

Second Step back part, remove the headrest, then unscrew the seatbelt guide thingy (it's the plastic pieces). Now from the bottom part of the seat near the middle there is a black tab behind the cushion that you will need to pull down before pulling the seat back. Pull that tab down and it will unlock the lock and let you free up that area, after pulling that tab there is two more. Look at the image I've provided so you have a better idea where the tabs are behind the seat cushion. Again, if you have the rear seat package, there will be another plug you will need to unplug before you put the cushion aside. It's located at the bottom left hand side.

I had to remove my rear seats to run a power wire, as you can see on the last picture.
