    Hi everyone, I need to take my back seats out for my job (yes I'm turning my beautiful A3 into a Van I know but I can't help it).
    I've managed to get the cushions out so far (the ones that you sit on), but I can't get the cushions that you lean up against out.
    Can anyone tell me what needs to be done to get the rest of these seats out please?

    Thanks!
    -Andy.

    cant you just fold them down? You'd get a much flatter load area?

    on the outer bottom corners the have a recess with a "roll over clip" you can see a notch in it place a screw driver in and roll it back wards whilst rolling the seat out sideways (you'l need the back at 45deg forward)

    sounds more complicated than it is

    If you need a boot liner, give me a call. I had one made up for the full load area as I have an A3 van also.....

    OK, I just gave it a go and I've managed to get the outside of the seats out from the clips, however both seats seem to be stuck to the centre clip thing in the middle and I don't think they'll pull out sideways any more as there's not much space to pull them to now if you know what I mean?
    Any ideas? :think:
