Question about Honda Odyssey

1 Answer

How do I remove the third row seats from a 2008 Honda Odyssey?I want to pull both of them out temporarily so I can access BOTH the full floor and the deep well the seats normally fold into. There are three large bolt heads visible when you remove a piece of plastic trim at the top center of the well. The bolts look like they're holding down two really heavy black castings, one for the 40% seat, the other for the 60% seat. These castings seem to be the inner hinges for the two seats. The outer hinges look like they might be large pins that go into holes mounted on the floor at the outer sides of the seats. My guess is if I remove the three bolts the seats might slide out away from the vehicle sides toward the center, and come free. But I don't want to try this without advice.

You haved to remove the bolts you are looking at and then fold the seat down remove teh other piece of plastic and remove those bolts. On the left and right side there are also a piect of plastic that covers the pivot bolts on the sides of the seats. These have to be removed also to access the bolts under them. This will allow you to remove the seat. POINTS TO REMEMBER. The Plastic pieces are not ment to be removed and will probably break upon removal. They are not cheep to replace. Also the bolts are set to a certain torque value to insure the passangers dont end up in the front in case of a accident. Also the seats have a very storng spring built into the pivot points to assist in raising and lowering the seat. Not easy to manually pull out to reinstall. Good Luck.

I want to make my 1999 Mercury Villager Sport into a cargo loader, with just the front seats kept and the rest of the back empty. How do I remove the other 3 seats? So far, I can't get any of them to budge...


the middle seats come out easily. There are 2 handles you have to lift up on each of the bucket seats, they are in the front of the seat down by the seat tracks. After you lift them, tilt the seat upward in the front and rotate them backward. Then lift out of the hooks. Each seat is held down by 4 hoks.

The 3rd row seat is not designed to come out xcept by a technician. It does slide forward all the way up to the front seat. It has a sliding seat track.
First, lift the T handle under the seat cushion on the left front side of the seat. This will allow you to lift the seat bottom up all the way to lcok in the full up position.
Then, lift the lever on the same side of the seat and slide the seat forward. It will stop in 4 places.
Rear -Rear
6 inches forward of that.
another two ft to the second row seating position
full frward against the front seats.

Pleae rate as fixya if this helps.

Mounting third row seat in 2008 Suburban 1FL, LS 1500 - Fleet veh


I drive a 2008 Suburban LT and my company has a true work "fleet" suburban. The only difference between these two that I have is the back of the fleet vehicle has a thick rubber mat in the back with no seats. After removing the black mat I found that the channels and rods that the rear seats clip into are present. The third row seats are installed by clipping them in no bolts or tools are required.
