I'm trying to replace the front seat/driver side but can't remove two of the bolts that hold it (1 front left side, 1 back right side). The bolts spin completely but do not come off. How can I remove them?? HELP!!!

hey, i just removed my seats a few days ago...you have to get under the seat rail either by cutting a hole in the carpet or lifting up the carpet (like from the door sill and then you might be able to reach it)...but anyway--theres a bolt going down thru the seat rail with a rusted nut on the otherside holding the seat down. You can try getting at it with a wrench or pliers or something but I recommend drilling it out...just start with a real small drill bit and work your way up to the diameter of the bolt...I think I used 3/16ths last or 3/8ths...I don't remember. But yeah just drill the bolts out--won't hurt your carpet that way either. I hope thats clear enough.

If so, you might need to stop the pressed nut from spinning by using a screwdriver or a longnose plier.

Try to locate it first with a finger...

a 1/4 inch drill should do it...but you shoud be able to jam the cage nut from underneath the seat (push seat all the way forward or backward depending on bolt location)with a screwdriver or a pair of vicegrips.

Good luck

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
