Replacing reat seat in Mercury Sable

The dog ate through the rear seat. We want to replace it, and have found seats on line for purchase. Is this a high tech job or can someone with common sense and the right wrenches do it?

    Thanks so much. We will look in the morning and see if we can find them. If so your advice helps us to make the decision to buy the seat onl line instead of paying $800 to the dealer to do it!

    Thanks a lot. NPS

You cn do it yourself. There are two screws on the front of the seat, as soon as those are removed then you can move the seat forward and up and out

How do I remove the rear door panel from a 2004 Buick Rainier

If dog ate the old ones, trim away old remaining material and gently pry the panel away from the door's edge. You should be able to see the shaft of the plastic retention clips which are just push-fit into door.

if you have the bolts removed from the seat its a job to move the seat back from the clips that hold it in so you have to move the seat back and this is hard because it will be in there tight once you get it moved back it will come out so you can do the job then good luck on getting it back in its a pain but once you do you should not have any problem getting the bolts back in

Unlock seat belt

You are going to have to take the interior trim off to get to the retractors. Then you are going to have to move the dogs out of the way on the sprockets. This could be tricky if the car has tensioners.

How to remove rear seat of 1997 Mercury Sable

Most rear seats are held in with clams and screws . Look under the swab (bit you sit on) for screws or bolts holding the front of that part down. remove and lift out. Then you should see two more at the bottom of the seat back holding it in . Remove these and lift the back bit straight up off the retaining clips.. take a trip to the wreckers if you are in doubt.

I bought a 2004 mercury sable i notice the back seat it dont have the seat belt snap that click but on the top of the seat is like a anchor

The anchor points that you describe are on all late model cars. They're made for attaching baby car seats without using seat belts. Your car should have both the anchors AND seat belts. Most likely, the lower seat belt latches have beeb pushed down into the seat. Fish around with your hand and you should find them.

Good luck.
