Removing the front seats

Yes, I did a search. Most of the threads merely say something like "remove the seat rails"... but it's not that easy or obvious.

If I move the seat all the way back...

• I can remove the bolts that attach the front of the rail to the floor, but not the bolts that attach the back of the rail to the floor.

• I can remove the bolts that attach the back of the rail to the seat, but not the bolts that attach the front of the rail to the seat.

Removing those bolts and moving the seat forward seems to do nothing more than allow the seat to flop about.

I can not find any tabs or pins that can be persuaded to release the rails.

Any details would be appreciated.

I just removed the seats last week to put in the new carpet.

The seat came off easy when you push the seat forward and remove the rear bolts first. Then you can slide the seat back and remove the front ones. I had no problems when I did it this way.

After the 4 bolts are removed you may need to push the slider tab/arm. It can hang it up because its still engaged. Hope this helps.

And this appears to be the issue: my seats won't go forward far enough to let me get to the bolts that attach the rails to the floor. It acts like it's stopping when it hits the crimp that at the end of the in-board rail.

I had a bear of a time getting mine out, I think it was because some errant upholstery was hanging down and catching on the stationary part of the rail assembly. Might check for that...

A rubber mallet helped persuade the rust to give a little bit.

If its the drivers seat, I noticed that my head rest was hitting the steering wheel and was blocking the forward motion.

Noted. I have a nice big mallet that has non-scuffing white rubber. Sort of like diplomacy.

Yep... I checked for that about half-way through... while looking for "well-duh" things.
