Answer by  Advisor (1032)

Front or rear? Front is fairly easy, remove screw and washer from track on both sides, seat will slide out. Rear is more difficult and must be done through trunk.

If you move the seat forward and backwards, you will see the 4 bolts that hold the tracks into the floor of the car. Remove those four bolts and you will be able to pop out the seats track and all. The back seat should pop right up, if not there are bolts under it in the front.

The car seat should utilize the safety harness in the reat of the seat along with the seat belt. First, you would need to remove the harness connector that connects the car seat to the physical frame of the vehicle. Then, remove the safety belt and remove the car seat.

You're going to need the right sized sockets for the job, you can check the socket size by consulting your user manual. You'll need to get a flash light and crawl under the seat in question. The nuts will be on tight, but they should be able to be twisted off by hand.

Depending on which seat, disconnect the seatbelts, any wiring attached to the harness or control boxes, and begin to unbolt the seat. Installation is the reverse of removal. I hope this helps.

The front is more of an easier task to move than the rear. All you have to do is remove screw and washer from both sides and slide seat out.

It's pretty simple, remove all bolts holding into place, disconnect any wires or linkage, and lift it on out. Nothing special. Those seats are heavy though, be ready.

Every car seat is bolted to the floor boards with several bolts that are easy to see with the eye. You need to get the right size socket and unbolt the 4-6 mounting bracket bolts.

If the seat you are removing is electric then you will need to disconnect the battery before removing. Make sure that you record the preset radio stations and that you have the security code for the radio before you disconnect the battery.
