Default How do I remove my backseat?

I searched numerous words in the TechInfo, but couldn't find any results I was happy with. I'm going to remove the back part of the back seat and was wondering how to do this. Thanks in advance.

Mmm questionable memory here... pull up on the front of the bottom seat that you sit on. Then once that'* out theres a couple of bolts that hold the back in place. Once they are out just pull up on the back of the seat and it should pop

The lower cushion must be removed first by pushing the front of the seat rearward and upward at the same time. The two locking tabs are about 16" from either end. This is where you do the pushing. Once the lower cushion is removed, you'll see two standard nuts that secure the seat belts and two wimppy little nuts at the outer ends. Remove the four nuts. The upper cushion can now be lifted upward and then towards the front of the car to unhook it from the body.

I just use a pair of pliers. Robo Grips to be exact but any pair will do. Sometimes I just use my hands cause they aren't really tight.

Kinda pull upward as you turn too.
