How much should it cost to reupholster one seat in front. Only the bottom portion of the seat needs to be done. I got an estimate on vinyl and it seemed really high.

That will run about $150.00, more if the seats are leather. Just had this done on my Corvette and also other cars, was $300 for each seat top and bottom not leather redo, had them use a high quality leatherlike material.

How can I adjust the height of the driver's seat in a '74 beetle ?

this is not possible without extensive seat base modification. It would be cheaper to take the seat back to the upholsterer and have them use a thinner foam in the seat.

-The passanger seat only heat the bottom of the seat. It does not have a heat pad in the back portion.

-For the driver seat, it sound like the bottom heat pad had burn out and need to be replace. The back portion and bottom share the same fuse. It takes time and the right tool to replace this heat pad, trust me I know.

Manufacturer recommends that you do not, it may change the way the air bags are deployed, even if the seat is torn in that area on the seam they do not recommend evening stitching the upholstery. only replace with factory materials.

How do i take out the bottom of the back seat out of a 2004 grand am?

The bottom portion of the seat is commonly retained in SLOTS, oriented front to rear, with openings rearward. The back portion of the seat gets pushed down, to squeeze under the other part. The front needs to slide back about 1 to 2 inches. there are usually two catches, one on each side, but in about 4 to 6 inches

How do you remove the rear seat in a 1985 mustang gt

I presume that you are talking about the bottom portion. Typically, these release by pushing rearward, (not easily done). it helps to depress the rear coushion, but the seat framework needs to move backwards about an inch or two.

How do i remove rear seat in a 2006 malibu

the bottom sections comes out first, and the bottom section is held in place by 1 of 2 ways.

1. bolts, look under the front of the seat if there are 2 bolts remove them if not

2. push the front edge of the seat backwards and lift up at the same time - it should unhook - do this on both sides.

Once the bottom portion is out the back will have bolts on the bottom remove then lift up.
