Get in the back seat straddling the hump, with your back to the front. Shove in hard with both hands on the front edge of the seat bottom, and pull up at the same time.

To the rear, and up.

Okay, you need to push down in the middle of each outboard seat, and back on the front of the seat.

How I did it was move the front seats all the way forward. Crouch in the foot space, with my knees pushing back on the seat front (which was difficult, I'm 6'2"), then pushed down with my elbows. You can do it one side at a time. It'll pop up. There is a hook and loop under the two outer seats.

Does that make sense?

So, I want to face the seats... push them in, and then lift up? Doesn't sound too hard...


PS - thanks for the quick reply... this place is awesome!

Ayup. Another strategy (which I've used in other cars but I don't think I've done in the Bonneville) is to pull the rear edge of the seat cushion out and up first. This requires some amount of squishing and bending the cushions in order to free up the back edge, and is easier on thinner, older seat cushions than newer or thicker ones, but sometimes it'* the only way to work around some tight-fitting or rusted front hooks.

It does _not_ go back in this way; you must reinstall the cushion back edge first, then press the cushion back and down in order to get the front hooks back in place.

It helps to have an assistant holding the seat belt buckles up against the seat back as you're trying to replant the cushion, so that you don't lose them under the seat.
