Be there done that, but with a penny. All you can do is either get real aggressive with a hammer and long metal object as a punch or pull the seat. The seat should have 4 bolts. One at each end of each track. Ising a 1/4 in drive rachet and either a 1/2 or 9/16 socket should work. 1/4 in drive is low profile.. good luck

Who do I remove rear seat for a BMW 760li?

Most rear seats need to be unlatched from the very bottom on each side. Try sliding the driver and passenger seats fully forward. With your back against the front seat press forward toward the trunk on the bottom of the rear seat on one corner at a time near the floor and lift up. This should release the latch. To replace the seat simply slide the seat back into place with the front slightly raised upward and push the seat in toward the trunk then push down til you hear the latch catch.

Where is the battery located in a 2011 Acadia?

The Acadia's battery is beneath the floor behind the front passenger seat.
Slide that seat all the way forward, then open the rear passenger door. If you've got a floor mat directly behind the front seats, it will have to be moved aside. There is a panel on the floor with one screw holding it closed. Remove this panel to access the battery compartment.

Your seat is bolted down. slide the seat all the way back as far as it will go, and look at the slide rails( tracks that the seat travels on), you will see 2 bolts. going into the floor on the rails. just undo the 2 bolts, and then slide the seat forward(slowly, the front has no bolts holding it), on the back side of the rails, are 2 more bolts. Remove thise bolts, and you should be able to remove the seat. (This is a manual seat, not a power seat) hope this helps, please rate helpful or not

Trying to remove driver's seat. How do I do it?

the seat is held into the floor by four bolts, two at the front and two at the back, you need to slide the seat right back all the way so you can see the 2 front bolts their is one either side and they are in the metal runner and then the same with the back slide it forward as far as you can and you should see the two back bolts.

if they just turn without undoing then you need to get some one else to help you and go under the car and hold a spanner on the nut under neath it should be a fixed nut and should undo from inside the car.

if their are any electrics then they are held in to a block connector just under the seat unclip this and you should be ok.

their may be caps on top of the bolts so if you cant see them then look for caps the bolts should be far forward in either side of the runner so it should be right at the front.

let me know if you have any problems ok

1997 lincoln town car..pas. seat goes foward but wont go bakwards...any help

Try pushing back as you work the switch forward and backward. The most likely problem is a stuck runner. Remove the two front bolts and the two rear nuts from the seat legs and tilt the seat backwards to clean and lubricate the runners
