Hello there:
for removal of the front seat you will have four bolt that go threw the floor board they will be under the carpet and more than likely will take a large tourq driver to get them out you may also have electrical connection under the seat if you electric seats so make sure you unplug the wire before removing the seat this will give you access to the part that needs to be replaced the bolt should be able to found by lifting the carpet right at the seat mounts in the front and the rear should be visible hope this helps you out sincerely D.Jones

Loose drivers side seat on 1998 acura

if you look , you'd have seen them.
but id bet it not the bolts. but do look
what you do is look at the track.
the track has 2 parts. bottom and top
if you wiggle the seat and the :
bottom wiggles with top , the base is loose.
if the top and bottom tracks , only move there, the track is bad.
there is no visual play at track juncture. so..... if there is, its bad.
if the base and track dont move the seat frame is cracked.
sounds hard, no,
its a 10 second job, you look and see what is loose.

now my wild useless guess.
the someone removed the seat, and its on back on track.
or as my fat boss did, broke the seat frame.

Drivers seat

You need to unbolt the seat from the floor, then put a large piece of sheet metal or really large flat washers (at least 3" diameter) under the legs to distribute the weight more evenly. How you repair the one that broke is largely dependent on if the leg broke or if it went through the floor. you can replace the seat with one from a scrapyard or if you know someone who can weld it without setting it on fire, (don't attempt to weld with the seat in the car) do that. if the leg went through the floor, then just use a large plate underneath to reinforce it and replace the bolt if necessary. Usually the bolts are case hardened steel so if one broke it may be easier to cut them all off and re-drill new holes just in front or behind the old ones. I'd only do that if the old one cannot be drilled and re-tapped though. Always use grade eight bolts to replace hardware. They will prevent the seat from tearing from the floor in an accident.

Drivers Power seat broken-the support metal arm-2004 Grand Cher

Should just be 4 bolts holding the seat to the floor, and unplug the wires. Only way to fix it is weld it, or get a different base from an auto wrecker.

Front passenger seat won't move back, stuck in forward position

You better get a mirror to check under the seat , there might be a loose or disconnect or broke spring . Compare it to your driver's seat so you can find the difference and what's broke or disconnect.

hope this will helps a little !

Driver seat not moving back and forth

under the seat is a thin wire that goes from one side to the other it has most likely broke you need to find the secondary lock it was connected to and release it to move the seat but you must also release the main lock so i suggest replacing the wire . THIS IS FOR MANUEL SEATS 
now as for power seats you will have to locate the power lead wire and make sure it is not broke if so you can replace the connecter with an aftermarket one and it may work again
