Q: Rear Seat Removal
How do I unbolt the rear seat (not fold-down) in a 1968? I can’t locate the bolts — or whatever mechanism holds the two pieces in…
A: Push the bottom of the seat towards the rear of the car to unhook it and lift up and out. Then you will see the two bolts that hold the seat back in place.
A: Mine is very tight. You have to [a] move the front seat all the way forward to give yourself room, [b] sit with your back against the front of the rear seat cushion, [c] keep your hands under the bottom of the rear seat, [d] in one motion, jolt down and back on the rear seat cushion, and then immediately lift up with your hands. This will unhook the front of the cushion. Once you get it off, you can see why this is necessary – the hook that holds on the front cushion has a large lip on it.
You need to repeat this process on the other side of the seat too.
Good luck. It’s not back once you get the hang of it. And look for your build sheet while you’re under there!
