ok Tom I'm johnAll I need is to take the trim off and I can do the rest is there a trick
Auto Mechanic: Thomas Ragusa,
 replied 3 years ago

looks like there is only a bolt/screw behind the secondary panel that pops off, then the panel should pop out, try getting a screwdriver close to the clips behind the cover so not to brake the plastic cause the clips tend to be very tight in the frame

you do not have to remove the seatbelt anchor, you could just slide the panel up it. this bolt tends to be tight and with lock tight on it

is that the small panel towards the back of the seat and the clips are on the rod behind the panel, i do not want to break this trim panel
Auto Mechanic: Thomas Ragusa,
 replied 3 years ago

yes the small panel will be removed quite easily, and you should see a screw or bolt behind it. just make sure there are no other screws or bolts directly behind the panel. and the clips to the metal rod, yes those are the ones im talking about
