    Sorry to hijack this thread, but how do you take out the other part of the rear seat? The parts you can fold down?

    Its very easy after the 1st time you do it, after you have pulled up you do need to push it towards the rear of the car quite hard to clear the rear hooks or it can get tangled the wrong side of them.

    a3slinedaz, i'll give you a tip...Its hard to explain but I got the hang of it!

    Start from the back 2 corners, dig your hand under the back and push the seat 'backwards' (towards the boot) whilst pulling it up at the back corner. Do this for each corner then only the front 2 clips are holding it. I just yanked the seats out from these. hard. lol

    Theres only 4 clips holding the seat down, the 2 back ones are like hooks, hence you need to push them back towards the boot whilst at the same time pulling up. Hope that helps!

    I've got one of those rattles but mine sounds like someone has left a socket in there. You can hear it rattle but when going slow over speed bumps I can hear it rolling backwards and forwards...MMmm might have to have a look under the back seat now...
