Seats - How to remove and refit.

8 years 8 months ago #22402 by talkingcars
I found it easier to do the rear bolts first as the seats slide back more easily without the rear bolts than it does going foward without the front bolts.

I removed the drivers seat only but did not disconnect the battery first. I disconnected the connector under the seat and re-fitted it on putting the seat back with no ill effects. Do I need to do anything now. Will the SR work

If the SRS light on the dash display goes out, there is a good chance all is ok. ~ i beleive that the reccomendation to dissconect the battery first is to avoid any possibility of an air bag firing. i have heard of people just blundering in without any dire results. :ohmy:

Is there any knack or technique to removing the bolts - only got 1 off so far.

The others aren't shifting at all, and it's making me feel more weedy than normal :rant:

Mine were stuck but a quick smack on the ratchet handle with the palm of my hand cracked them. If that doesn't work give it a smack with a hammer to crack them and then wind out as normal. They are quite stiff all the way out though.

Allways told to wait 15 min after disconnecting the battery.

Top tip: you can take out the complete seat with the safety belt still fitted. Its much easier to unbolt the safety belt with the chair standing next to the car!

The official advice from MGR was disconnect the battery and wait 10 minutes before touching any part of the SRS system..
