Hi...can you help me?
Sure, you need to remove the bottom portion of the rear seat?
yes...it is not one of those that used to release and was on hinges...I just want to lift out the upholstered portion of the bench seat so I can cover it with new upholstery
I can't tell how it is held in place (bolt, release button) and where to release it
Ok, you need to remove that whole bench, basically it just pulls up at the front section, not easily but it will pop out. I am sending you the directions per Subaru..you really do not need to disconnect the battery as it states to get the seat out though.
This should do it.
the seat is held by clips in the floor, you have to give it a good pull at the front lips..the arrows in the pic are indicating to pull up
Do you think I will have to remove all that other stuff...headrest stuff, etc?
not if you want to just remove the bottom
okay. this looks really helpful...I am waiting for a friend to come over and help me do this in a couple of hours. If I have trouble, how do I reach you again?
Even after you click Accept, you can come back to this chat and post, I will get an e mail and will respond.
How do I do that? save and exit after accepting?
yes, you set up an account, so you can always access your questions
and we can still work on this if you need more help
I should say..you already set up your account
yes...okay...thanks! I think we're done for now until I go and try to wrestle that seat out :)
lol, good luck!
do I hit accept now?
yes please, and leave feedback if you can.
Ill look for you later
let me know how it turns out
