How to remove back seat of 1999 cavalier


Look on the bottom of the lower cushion, where it meets the floor. If you don't see 2 screws or bolts (one on each side of cushion) there, then there are clips that the bottom cushion uses to fit tight into the floor. To remove the bottom cushion, you shove it towards the rear and then lift up and out of where the clips hold it fast. Sometimes you really have to push the cushion hard towards the rear to get the clips loose. Then you lift up the bottom cushion and remove it. Now you can remove the upper portion of the seat. Usually there are 2 bolts down at the bottom of the upper cushion. Remove those and the upper portion can be removed. If there are no bolts on the bottom of the upper cushion, then you just lift it up and out of slots that held it fast.
Do the bottom cushion first.

Pull up sharply on the fron lip of thr bottom cushion and it pops up. That will expose th bolts that hold the top cushion down, once you remove them the back lifts upoff the clips.

How can i get bmw 323i convertible top down manualy


If your top is electric then you will need to release the front cowl motors at the center point of the trim in front of the rear view mirror(small access plug needs to be removed and allen key inserted to drive unit.) You also need to pull the release handle under the back seat bottom(driver's side) The release handle detaches the drive units for the storage lid cover and the convertible top drive. Once the motors are released, the front of the top must be lifted approximately 6 inches and the pressure against the rear of the top will relax. raise the rear bow, open the storage lid, lower the rear bow and push the front of the top up and toward the back of the car. The top should fold into the storage area. Once in, close the storage lid until it clicks.

you have to to push against the bottom half of the seat towards the back of the car, theres a clip that holds the bar in place and then they just pull out. The top half of the seats have to be unbolted

Need to get the expansion tank out of bmw 323i 2000 cannot remove it any suggestions?


?? i think it's part of your radiator, it's all one piece.
if it's separate from the radiator it should be hanging there only with some screws or clips, the rest is just pressure.
the have some rubber grommets on the bottom that keep them tight
