All models are slightly different it would help to know what vehicle but in general most eiter have two bolts under the front edge (could be under carpet or trim) or they are retained with hooks that latch onto steel pencil rod running around the perimeter of the bottom of the seat this type is more or less about using brute fkrce to push the bottom edge of the seat towards the rear of the vehicle then pull up
Probably running down from bad seal in windscreen. Get someone to hold hose above bottom edge of windscreen while you check inside for leaking water running down firewall into carpet. Probably on drivers side just above where carpet first gets wet. Once you find hole in caulking compound where water gets in... plug it with silicone silastic.
If the Stabilitrak Yaw sensor box gets full of water you will get the Service Stabilitrak message.
The 2006-2011 Cadillac DTS and Buick Lucerne have a manufacturing defect of a major water leak problem at the bottom of the driver's side A pillar just below the windshield, accessible after the air inlet grille panel under the wiper blades is removed. The GM service manual bulletin #PI0356A (June 8, 2011) vaguely outlines how to seal off this opening, see attached photo taken from this bulletin. After sealing the obvious unsealed seams, I had to use fire-block insulating foam to close off the large 1 inch remaining upper opening.
The Cadillac DTS has another water leak path in the left front hinge pillar area under the wheelhouse liner noted in the same service bulletin.
In our Lucerne CXS, water actually flooded the Stabilitrak Yaw sensor box which is under the carpet under the driver's seat, resulting in the service Stabilitrak message . It's a major chore to remove the seats, trim and center console just to get the carpets out to dry. The carpets are difficult to dry because they have 1 inch of foam attached which holds a lot of water.
After removing the carpets and sealing the obvious seams, water still poured in when tested with a water hose and it was then I discovered that the water was getting in through the large upper opening which I used fire-block foam to seal. It's best to water test before you put everything back together.
You can quickly check if you have a water leak problem in your vehicle by popping up the rear seat bottom, removing the carpet clip and lifting the carpet on the driver's side rear passenger seat. Ours had about a 1/2 inch of standing water plus a lot more held in the carpet's foam rubber.
I was able to reuse the flooded Stabilitrak Yaw sensor by opening the box, shaking out the water, rinsing the insides with isopropyl alcohol and drying with a hair dryer. The service message went out and the Stabilitrak works in my attempts to slide around on gravel.
I'm surprised that GM didn't have a recall as I consider Stabilitak to be safety equipment.
you most likely have a hydraulic clutch, which the clutch master cylinder is located on the firewall on the driverside close to your drivers side windsheild.it takes brake fluid to fill dot brake fluid will fill it properly. however if your slave cylinder on the transmission is leaking,this will require a replacement of the clutch slave cylinder. look for leakage under passenger side,,just under or below passenger side seat onto ground. recommend if you replace the clutch slave cylinder,you also replace clutch master cylinder located on the drivers side firewall at wind sheild.look under the car while someone pumps the clutch in and out,if you see brake fluid leaking under car onto ground or inside onto carpet at brake pedal,you have a bad clutch master cylinder. recommend you replace both slave cylinder and clutch master cylinder. this will save you lots of time and headaches. thank you for choosing fixya.com
Is it water or brake fluid. Water could be a windscreen leak or leaves have got through the outside grille of the vent, blocking the drain, so when it rains the piping is full of water. As you go around corners the water leaks into the cab.
If it is brake fluid, you have a leak in the master cylinder which allows fluid to leak down the push rod, onto the pedal and into your carpet. If you are not having to top up your brake fluid it is not likely to be the problem.
Generally.....3 things happen. The washer fluid plastic bottle may be cracked....not likely. The pump (and or gasket at the pump) may be leaking ......30%. The rubber hose pushed onto the pump to direct the washer fluid up to the window may have popped off........70% ......most likely.
In the 03, the bottom of the back seat has two (2) spring hooks about 12 or so inches from the side (looks like this, o= hook _= front of seat bottom), (_o____o_). Just pull up on each one and the seat bottom will come up and out/forward. The seat back has a couple of bolts that you will see once you remove the seat bottom. Remove bolt(s) and slide the seat back to the outside. There are two (2) "windows" to the tank. One on driver's side that will be visible when you remove the seat bottom (and pull back the carpet and insulation, and one behind the seat-back on the passenger's side (this is where the fuel pump, et. al. is/are. Driver's side is just the second float. There is a wire and hose that connects the two floats, so you may want to disconnect the battery to avoid any electrical current in the tank.
