Seat Cushion Replacement - Rear
Removal Procedure




Push the lower forward edge of the seat cushion (1) rearward.
Lift upward and pull forward on the seat cushion frame in order to disengage the cushion frame wires (3) from the retainers (2) on the rear seat pan.
If the cushion is difficult to disengage from the seat pan retainers, grasp the lower edge of the seat cushion at the retainer location on one side of the seat. Exert enough rearward pressure in order to disengage the seat from the retainers.

Installation Procedure


Carefully lift the cushion into the body. Do not damage the adjacent trim.
Position the rear edge of the cushion under the rear seat back while you position the seat belt straps.
Align the frame wire offsets (3) at the front of the seat cushion frame with the retainers (2) on the floor pan. Push the seat cushion rearward until the offsets engage in the retainers. Fully engage the retainers by pressing down and pulling the cushion forward.
If the cushion is difficult to engage to the seat pan retainers, grasp the lower edge of the seat cushion at the retainer location on one side of the seat. Exert enough rearward pressure in order to engage the seat into the retainers.
