View Full Version : Removing front seats?

I am having a difficult time removing the front seats. I use a hex tool to unbolt it and it won't budge. I even use a drill to help me and the drill can't even make the nut budge. The drill motor can't move cause the bolt is so tight. What am I doing wrong? Am I at the wrong bolt? I'm trying to removing the bolts that are accessible from the back.

Nope; they're the right bolts; just keep going at it. Maybe use a small piece of pipe for some leverage on it. It'll budge eventually. Mine were really tight, too when i first tried to get them out.

use a large breaker bar and add a pipe if needed. no way a drill has enough torque to break loose those bolts. a heavy duty impact wrench might do it though.

just be ready to hit your knuckles on something when you finally break it loose, though. :)

Yeah, that's the part i'm worried about. Guess I better prepare myself for some wounds. :(

Yep breaker bar or impact gun (like teh garages use for taking off wheels). There are only 2 bolts per seat (in teh back) adn the front sort of hooks in. You'll see when you take out the bolts. Nothing to it!!!

Anybody got any pics of these bolts? I'm having trouble spotting them... don't rip on me if it's a question that requires a handicap to be valid.

see how the passenger seat rails are exposed when the seat is all teh way forwards... on the right side of the rear floor mat as pictured, each rail has a bolt. they are the only bolts in the neighborhood
