Default Seat Belt anchor bolt kind

I"m in the midst of removing the seat on my car.. and hold and behold.. the seat belt'* anchor bolt is holding down the removal of the seat.

Before I go and attempt to get all Hercules on it and break something else ( namely my back ) Anyone know what kinda bolt it is and how to remove the cover around it?

the cover either just snaps on and can be pulled off, or is held on by a screw.

as far as the bolt goes, it is a torx ( or star ) head bolt and I believe that it is a T-47.... not %100 sure on the size though

Well.. the largest I have is a torx T45 and it'* bigger then that..

and the cover is held on by a screw. I didn't see the screw till I pushed the seat forward cause it was just flopping around

Lets just say I went to Crappy Tire with barely much of a seat.. lmao.

T47 torx is the correct size. T45 is a lil iffy. thankfully I went and bought a set that has T47

Sweet... you rock buddy.

I'm surprised you didn't need a T47 to remove the seats after the swimming incident.

Those WERE the original seat still in there ( prior to the current swap project. ) I broke a phillips screw driver gettin the front right cover for the nut/bolt on the driver seat off.. lol. Then brought out the crow bar to snap the black cover off ( since I have a spare from the parts car... hee hee )

I will attempt to do the driver side leather swap on the old ( removed ) one to ensure I am able to pull it off and back on without the leather being as loose as Pamela Anderson before attempting the actual swap over of leather.

Humm.. Maybe I should practice on the passenger one.. worse case it gets foo bar'd kidding..

OK.. how do I get the headrest off?? I did a quick search and there'* none with pics of how to.. some say trick is 90 degress? WTF?? Any suggestion for that other then the all mighty crowbar and duct tape??

Extend headrest..look at headrest from front..where it meets the seat. See the hole on either piece of plastic. Insert a paper clip and push in..then lift that side fo the headrest. Repeat on other side. If they appear to fight..push down slightly on the headrest before pulling up.
