Damp carpets / remove seats - is it really that easy???
 
Hi,

I am planning on removing my seats tomorrow to unblock the drainage holes and stop the wet carpet. Is seat removal really as easy as 4 bolts on each seat to un screw, un clip the seat belt wire and that's that?? Anything I need to know??

My car is a 1997.

Thanks.

you need torx sockets. you can try using a nomal socket, but i blew two apart in the process.

Remeber to disconnect the batteries first before removal/disconnecting wires, AND connect wires back before connecting batteries..

The connector can be tricky
 
If you're trying to disconnect the connector without looking at it, it may be a little tricky. IIRC, there is a sliding collar which locks the connector in place

+1 - if you don't do this you will be stuck with the airbag light on. Also know that you will have to re-enter your radio code after disconnecting the battery.

I got those bolts out with a 12-point socket. I think it was 10mm. Didn't have torx sockets at the time.

Ya, theres a total 4 bolts for each seat. One in each corner. You need to scoot each seat all the way back & then all the way forward respectively to get the front and back bolts out. Unplug wires where you see them.

Absolutely do not let the water fester down there.
