Default How to remove rear bench

Im trying to wire up some subs and the seats are in the way. How do i remove the bottom part of the seat in the back? i looked in the haynes manual but it did me no help.

so compress the cushions towards the back of the car and kind of manhandle and lift it up?

The haynes manual is telling me to lift up front edge of seat then release some kind of "cushion retaining tabs", then unbolt some bolts...

But ill trust you guys more. If it doesent work i know who to blame haha. jk

It's not hard, you'll figure it out as you try to do it. If I still had my instructions for my rear seat delete I'd scan it for ya

Wait so do i need to push the seat back more and lift it out? Or do i need to find these tabs first? It seem's like there is no definite answer. It almost seems like i need to find these buttons underneath the seat to release it, but yet there underneath so i cant access it! Haha just like inventing a lightbulb before electricity. But im sure its simple. I played around with the seat for about a minute today and gave up.

Oh and ive actually had two alpine type R subs sitting around for about 2 years. Time to put them to some use I'm so close to getting everything ready for the subs. Ive actually been in the cold wrestling with these new headlights i got from AM, but one of them wont fit for **** or im doing something wrong, but the subs were on the back burner until i could find a sure way of just routing the power cords under the seats.
