Re: Now i wanna changing my Kohler3384 with a new...
The attaching hardware (not bolts) is removed by removing the nuts from underneath. You should be aware that on some old toilet installations the hardware may be rusted and the nuts difficult to remove. In that case, you may need to use rust solvent and even a hacksaw to get results.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I'd probably remove the bolts that hold the seat to the floor, then remove the seat.
Chances are that there is an obstruction in the rails that the seat frame slides in. Jelly beans, old socks, change. Get it clean and it should work fine.
Sounds like you're into some interior customizing right?
So you're going to install some rad new seats and they have new bolts and instructions so that they will be installed safely, right?
So the only problem you have is that there were old bolts sticking up from the floor, and you want to get rid of them. They will be either welded on, or the bolts will be coming through from the underside. Sometimes they will get stuck with rust or undercoating. You'll just need to find out if they can be removed, or if you need to use a zip cutter to get rid of them. I'd be tempted to find a way to temporarily secure them until I was absolutely sure the new seats are working the way you want, and that you will never need the old bolts again.
get under the front seats there are 4 bolts holding the seats in the floor plus a torx bolt for the lap belt, take seats out the back seat has 2 torx bolts at the front bottom of the lower cushion remove them and pull the bottom forward the back has 2 bolts holding it remove them and lift the unit straight up, be carefull there is wires under the front seat for the seat belt warning light carefully unhook them 1 for each seat now you need hog ring plairs and a bunch of new hog rings to secure the new fabric, use side cutter plairs to remove old hog rings carefully remove the seat covers, hog rings can be got at car glass shops the pliars can be got from summit racing or a place that sells car uppolstrytake your time and you can do it!!

Hi Edward, if you are only changing the drivers seat with a new one, here's how its done. You'll need to move the seat reward all the way, then remove the 2 bolts holding the seat to the floor, then move the seat all the way forward and remove the 2 bolts holding the seat to the floor. NEXT, tilt the seat up and unplug all connectors that run from the floor to the seat. Thats it, reinstall your new seat in reverse procedure. Hope this helps, have an awesome day Edward.
This si the solution for a gasket replacement, and you will need it when you remove the old ones.

The thermostat is normally located in the aluminium elbow that the top radiator hose connects to. The elbow is usually held down by two bolts and it is only necessary to remove these to replace the thermostat. It may not be necessary to remove any hoses. Take care that the new thermostat is correctly located in its recess and the old gasketing has been completely removed and that the new gasket has a smear of gasket cement on it. While tightening the bolts, make sure that the elbow is seating evenly and not catching on the edge of the thermostat or you could crack the elbow.
Unhook any wiring harness from under the seat that is attached to the seat. bolts for the seat are accessed from underneath the vehicle. use some wd 40 on the bolts to make them easier to remove tho you may break some of the bolts. if so drill out the old ones (if you are reusing the old seat) and use ones that are the proper grade.
Hi GB52. Just done this myself, should take 15 minutes perside max. 1/ remove rear seat cushion by bumping the centre back and up, lower the back rests down. 2/ Unscrew the striker plate from the seat side bolster and the bolt at the lower edge of the bolster Removing the bolster takes a bit of fiddling. 3/ use a flat-head screwdriver to release the strut spring clips - use the new ones as a guide. 4/ remove the old strut and fit the new one. reinstall the bolster, bolt and strike plate. note; when replacing the rear seat cushion, ensure the seat belts are fed through first and check that the seat retaining clips properly engage the floor panel brackets.
