Hi Lynne:
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.

Remove rear seat 1993 chevy 1500


I just took out my rear seat from my 1993 Cheyenne ext cab. Fold the back seat in the up position. There are 2 square stubs sticking out from each side that the hinge plates of the seat slip over. Take out the 5/8 bolt and washer securing the hinge plate to the stub--slide the seat assembly toward the rear of the cab--and lift up and out.
Once you have the right solution--it is a 5 minute job !!!

Trying to change beanch seat to bucket seats what will interchange


You can put any bucket seat in the car. You'll just need to add spacers between the floor and the seat rails and create holes for the bucket seats to bolt to the floor. I have a 70 El Camino street rod and have bucket seats in it. I installed the outer seat rails to the factory bolt holes the best I could and created the inner 2 holes and added a couple of spacers to level the seat and make sure it was straight.

1990 chevy gladiator van steering column has came loose. It is floppy, how and what is the best way to correct this.


I will assume you really have a G10-20-30 van.(half/ 3/4 or 1 ton full size van)
The fifth digit of your vin should be a G.
Not the 2wheel drive pickup indicated.
That being said, your Gadiator is an aftermarket conversion van with a loose column.
This would have to be a loose tilt bowl on the steering column.
After removing the steering wheel and lock plate, you will find four inverted torx bolts that hold the tilt bowl to the column. Two will be backed way out and loose.Remove these bolts and appy loc tite to the bolt threads, then reassemble.

I just need to know if the bucket seats to a 1989 chevy s10 blazer will directly bolt into my 1983 s10 pickup


Actually, you can put them in there even if they do not directly bolt in. If they do not match, even though they SHOULD, 6-8 holes in your floor followed by the original bolts from the 89 will make them fit just fine.

!990 Dodge Grand Caravan Rear Seat


If yours is a Braun Entervan conversion and the spare tire has been relocated to the inside rear behind the seat, your rear seats will not come out, they are bolted to the floor. From the factory, they are designed to unlatch and come out, but after the conversion, the undercarriage of your van is completely different, especially if you have a lowered floor, and even more so if you have a kneeling van. If you unbolt the rear seats, you will have to bolt them back in, they're not quick releae anymore. If you van floor is lowered (usually about 10") "High Water" has a whole new meaning for you, it doesn't have to be very high at all to flood your interior.
Good Luck,
