    Re: A4 rear seat removal

    the base is held on with a two clips at the front of the rear set base. roughly centred behind each of the front seats. just pull them up and the seat will come out. you have to really pull at them....

    Maybe I got lucky or just have strong fingers. No tools required, just remove the headrest and get your thumb and 2 fingers underneath the head and prise them up. Wasn't even a struggle. The key is to keep equal pressure all round the guide so you are lifting it straight up. If you try it with a large screwdriver or similar then you'll never do it as you are trying to prise it up at an angle

    ok... so I got a tip from someone else today... this technique worked very easily for me...

    when you have the head rests out... push the seat towards the back of the car with your knee (just bellow the guide) and then just lift up with your fingers... they should pop out with a bit of force...

    No they always snap, so would have to be new ones!
