Install back seat
Someone else had this problem and posted the solution online. I found it while planning to reupholster the drivers seat on my Olds Alero. Hope this helps, i've cut and pasted from wikianswers....
I had the same problem, hence my stumbling across this question this afternoon. i just spent a very frustrating hour working it out!
first, to get an idea of how the black clips sit, place them in the rectangular gaps on either side at the front of the seat.
the plastic clips sit in the rectangular hole, with the pointy ends facing up. the short one at the front. the short pointy end clips around the front edge of the rectangular hole.
the longer pointy end that is now towards the rear of the car is meant to clip onto the wire that sticks out at the front of the seat. there is one on either side of the seat so it is easy to see them line up roughly.
the pointy end doesnt clip around the u shaped bit that sticks out, but the striaght bit just behind that.
now, if you can understand what i meant. it is time to install.
take the plastic clip out of the rectangular hole. clip the long pointy end around the wire on the seat. lower it carefully into place. this is what i found the tricky bit. you can't see, so i lined it up by feel, and lowered it very carefully. then....... after trying many times to put in in place, a finally forced it in with brute stregnth and determination. you have to force it down towards the back of the car to make the clip latch into the rectangular hole.
it took me ages to work out the frist one, then the second side only took a minute as i knew what to do.
hope this was understandable and will help.
