Default 92 SE Driver seat removal/replacement

My 92 SE just failed inspection because of an apparent exhaust leak and because the front driver'* seat frame is all busted. I have the power adjustment 60/40 seat in the front and I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to remove it.I did a search and checked tech info but couldnt find anything specific. Also is it possible to replace just the seat back? Thanks.

for the front seats all you need is a phillips and a couple basic sockets. i believe 13 and 15mm. You can replace just the back if you choose. if you want a new bottom seat, you dont need any tool for replacement. if you want to replace the upper back seat, you will need a torx bit. i want to say its a T55, but im not 100% on that.

I would like to replace just the upper back if I could. I stopped at the Depot on the way back from the inspection place and saw at least one Torx bit that would have to be removed to take off just the upper part and it was big but I wasn't sure of the size (glad I didn't buy one yet, was going to get a T50). Not only did I fail the inspection, but when the guy brought my car out he parked behind someone else. When the other person was leaving the backed up right into my Bonne and then took off. Luckily there was no visible damage. Its a sad day for the 92.

yes you can do that, it may be a T50, i cant remember. i would suggest a set. most places charge 5-7 for individual torx bits and around $15 for a full set from T10-T60.
oh, and you will need a 18mm socket for the seatblets. and i use just regular pliers for those other sheet metal nuts
