Remove the rear seat


What type of vehicle? Most rear seats you push down and back on front edge to unlock the clip that holds seat in place, but some have bolts along front edge.

How to remove seat


Slide seat back all the way. Remove front mounting bolts (sometimes hidden by plastic trim). Move seat all the way forward, remove bolts at rear. It may also have a wiring connector to disconnect, and seat belts may need to be un bolted fro floor and side pillars.

I need to replace my seat belt buckle, and i need to remove the front seat before i can replaced the broken buckle.


Your question isn't stating what kind of car you have, but to remove the seat in car or truck if you have bucket seats, it should only be 4 bolts and a wiring harness. There may be small plastic caps over the bolts. Once you get the seat unbolted be sure to find the wires and just unplug the connector. The seatbelt should only be one bolt, but may be a torx (star) bit. Bench seats have the same concept, but you have to unbolt both passenger and drivers side to remove them. Seats aren't too heavy either. Look heavy, but usually not in newer vehicles.

Factory XM Unit Location


Hi Xit.....The factory XM module is in fact located under the rear shelf trim panel. You will have to remove the rear seat cushion, just pull up on the front of the cushion about 12 inches in from left and right corners. Remove the cushion from the car. Open the trunk and remove nuts located on the seat back just under rear shelf metal. Back inside the rear seat area, remove the seat belt buckle bolts located inboard of right and left lower corners of the seat back. Remove the seat back. You will now be able to see the (2) plastic fir tree pins that hold the shelf panel trim in place. Remove the pins.
Now comes the hard part, remove the right and left quarter sail interior trim panels ( Caution: roof rail air bag located behind right and left panels) the fasteners are located behind the "SIR" plastic buttons in the sail panel trim.
All in all, unless you have the proper tools and take the proper precautions, you might want to take your Cadillac to your local dealer.
Buy the way, is there something wrong with your factory XM module?
Let me know, regards.
