I have a 1984 sr5 corolla,trueno in japan, and if u know this car u know that it is godly light and removing the rear seats make it lighter. well i removed them some time ago and i was wondering is there any possible problems with this?such as handling etc.
There shouldn't be a problem. most people here take out their seats for track/race purposes. when drifting you want to focus on lightness and suspension/brakes. check out www.club4ag.com and look at the tech referances and the forums. have fun, wish i had your car, mines the sr5 american model! :(

Hi there:My opinnion, for beginners, the Trueno is prolly easiest to learn in; is light weight, solid rear axle, reasonably simple and reliable. Check in THIS LINK other details and opinnions. Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer. Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.
Yes, or you may have to remove the rear seats to gain access to the trunk area.Roll your windows down or leave the doors open to ensure there is sufficient air flow inside of the car. You do not want to run out of oxygen.
it is a pretty basic job the important things to remember is to remove everything sequentially. in other words make a note of which bolts go where. remove the intake and clean both mating surfaces, usually you dont need gasket sealant for an intake manifold. reassemble in the order removed thats about it.
OK. On the front edge of the seat bottom cushion, pull up hard, both sides. This will dislodge the 2 clamps that holds the seat cushion to the floor. Pull the seat cushion out & set it aside. You will now see the female latches bolted to the area where the rear of the seat cushion meets the rear seat back bottom. Remove the bolts (14 mm I think).
Remove the retention screw above the headlamp, and pull it straight out towards the front of the car. Note that it may be slightly difficult to pull, you have to defeat a retention tab that holds the rear of the lamp assembly.
