Question about 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe

2 Answers

Lost expensive item behind and under front passenger seat cushion.

My wife dropped her ring down behind the front passenger seat cushion of our 2004 Santa Fe LX. How can I gain access to that area, either by removing the back portion of the seat, or removing just the seat cushion?

I would just remove the whole seat and tip it upside down, don't forget to unplug the wires when you unbolt the seat runners

Take the whole seat out of the car. Take it to a shop that does car upholstery.

SOURCE: Fog Light Replacement Hyundai Santa Fe

The above statement is GREAT!!! The wheel-well piece folds down across the area you need to be in. There are 2 screws to undo this part. Push it back and there is a cap that unscrews which holds the wires and socket he is talking about. Unscrew the cap, unscrew the wire and housing. The bulb comes out. You pull the wire harness off and install the new bulb. It has a triangular push-in and it has to go just right so take note of how it comes out. Also, being a halogen light bulb, do not touch the bulb with your hands - the oils will make it explode.

2004 saab rear seat removal

The three usual ways to remove lower portion of seat (depending on make of vehicle) are -
1. If possible move front seats all the way forward and get in back so you can use knee to push in hard (towards back of car) on lower section while pulling front edge up. Seat is hooked in tab on floor of car. You have to do this on both sides.
2. At spot where carpet goes under lip of lower cushion look for small tabs. You pull the tab and pull up on front of seat. Again on both sides.
3. At rear edge of lower cushion press down (usually near those tabs for car seat) and look for bolt that holds back of seat in. You have to crush cushion down and use a light but you will see a bolt on each side that must be taken out. Bolt is going through a metal hoop that is part of seat frame.

Where are the fuses located for the air conditioner in a 2001 pontiac bonneville

The interior fuse box in a Pontiac Bonneville is underneath the backseat on the driver's side.

To remove the rear seat cushion:
1. Pull up on the front of the cushion to release the
front hooks.
2. Pull the cushion up and out toward the front of
the vehicle.

To reinstall the rear seat cushion:

1. Buckle the center passenger position safety belt, then
route the safety belts through the proper slots in the
seat cushion. Don't let the safety belts get twisted.
2. Slide the rear of the cushion up and under the
seatback so the rear - locating guides hook into the
wire loops on the back frame.
3. With the seat cushion lowered, push rearward and
then press down on the seat cushion until the spring
locks on both ends engage.
4. Check to make sure the safety belts are properly
routed and that no portion of any safety belt is
trapped under the seat. Also make sure the seat
cushion is secured.

The battery and main fuse blocks are located
under the rear seat cushion. The battery's ground
terminal and some relay wires are exposed.
To help avoid damage to the battery and wires,
be careful when removing or reinstalling the seat
cushion. Do not remove covers from covered
parts. Do not store anything under the seat, as
objects could touch exposed wires and cause
a short.

either reach for it or attempt to undo all 4 bolts. The bolts have a high chance of snapping in two so be prepared to replace them with new ones and even a drill to drill out the old ones and possible re-tap them.

How to get to battery in 2004 cadillac

The battery is located in the underneath the center of the rear seat bottom cushion.
1) Pull on the front of the rear seat bottom cushion directly behind each front seat. The seat will pop out of the indentations which it seats into it.
2) Directory in the middle of the seat, you shall see the battery. NOTE: This is a special sealed battery with special venting tubes. Do not replace with just any battery as it can cause toxic fumes to be released inside the car.
NOTE: If you are just charging the battery or you need to test the battery holding a charge, there is a positive battery post directory infront of the passenger side when the hood is open. To the right of that, there is an "L" bracket for grounding. You use these two to check, charge, or jumpstart the battery.

Where are the fusebox locations on the 1996 caddilac sts

The fuse block is located next to the air filter on the driver's side of the engine. Lift the cover to gain access.

The Maxi-Fuses and relays are located next to the engine compartment fuse block on the driver’s side of the engine.

The rear fuse block is located on the front wall of the trunk behind the rear seat on the driver's side. Loosen the four trunk trim fasteners and pull the trim away from the fuse block to gain access.

For other details and description about specific fuse can check the 1996 Cadillac Seville STS - Owners Manual (page 314 and next).

Hope helps (remember comment and rated this).

Passenger heated seat doesn't work.

You have two fuse boxes below and in front of the rear seat cushion. You have to pull the seat cushion up and then pull back the carpeting to get to them. Check the appropriate fuse and replace if necessary. If it's not a blown fuse then you have a short somewhere most likely.
