Seats are pretty easy to remove. Theres two bolts in the footwells that will let you remove the bottom section. Then theres three bolts underneath that that hold on the rear section. Lift that upwards and it should come out. Its a bit tricky to get it back on though

I only used the two outer bolts on top when putting the seat back in - the middle one was tough to thread in, even with the socket extension.

Ive been wanting to know how to take the rear seat out.. where are the bolts located? Footwell? What is that? :?:

here is the PDF for taking the rear seat out :

footwell would be where you put your feet if you're sitting in the backseat.
