    Couple of bolts at the front and two plastic covers at the back. Then slide forwards until the pegs come out. Then remove the plugs underneath and lift out carefully.

    I found it best to recline the seats a bit first then ease out of the door by tilting towards you and taking out seat base first.

    Cheers,

    Sorry Jase, was working from memory, and just checked now.

    You need to slide the seat forward before starting.

    Then after removing the rear runner covers and the two bolts at the front, push seat back until the runner wheel can be lifted up and over the seat belt anchor.

    Cheers,

    Did you turn on the ignition at all while the seat electrics were disconnected? If so, then yes, it should just need the fault clearing.
