    Hi,

    Could anyone please give me some advice on how to remove the front and rear seats?

    Do I need any special tools?

    Wanna stick some S-Line seats in and wanted to know how to deal with it quickly and efficiently. :cool:

    Is it difficult?

    Thanks

    Fronts need spline sockets to undo 4 bolts in base rails then lift out taking note to unplug any cables undernetah plugge dinto floor sockets, rears are different, base is held in place by metal bracket part of the seat frame & pushed into plastic locators at front & then the hooks can be released for base rear fixings to slide forward or back & out iirc, some force to lift up to remove base front fixings & rear upper is locked into some groove like locators on left/right & depending if split seat iirc the middles are held in place by a bolt & metal piece that holds them into a channel, should be obvious once started tbh mate, I may ahve missed something small out but overall its this.

    Do you know the size of the spline bit socket to get the front seats out?
