How do I Bend forward the back of the rear seats of a Nissan Pulsar 2014 to put the seat covers on?


Do not bend the rear seat back rests, they will never be the same again. On most (if not all) cars the rear backrests are bolted on by means of two bolts behind the seat, so first remove the seat (the bottom padding that keeps your backside from hitting the floor) by pulling the seat up. On some vehicles, the seat is bolted down with two 6mm bolts on either side. Once you have the seat out, you should see two bolts holding the back rest to the body of the car. Undo these, and the backrest comes off easily.
Now fit the seat covers and bolt the backrest back into place. It is not a difficult job, shouldn't take more than an hour or less.

How can remove the the back seat of Corolla LE 2009


The back seats usually come with a wire seat holder imbedded within the seat. You have to push down on the knew rest area in an downward and back to the rear of the vehicle motion to remove the bottom portion of the seat. You do this on both sides. Once exposed you will see where the back portion of the backrest seat will have bolts on the bottom of the frame that need to be removed, along with the seat belt screws. You might have to purchase a special six or eight point star torques bit to remove the bolts but they are worth having around.

How to remove a rear seat of a 2007 Chrysler 300 SRT8


1- pull up on the front edge of the seat cushion to remove it; it is held in by spring loaded fasteners
2- if you also want to remove the rear backrests, you need to remove the smaller one first by folding it down and removing the two screws from the bracket and then it just slides off of a pin attaching it to the bigger seat back. the bigger section is removed last the same way.

How do I remove the back seat / backrest from a bmw 328IC 1997


Remove the headrests (if equipped). Grip the lower seat at the front part of the seat and pull upwards to clear the clips(1), and the remove the lower seat.
Fold down the armrest and remove the bolts behind the armrest. The upper seat(backrest) is then pushed up, pulled forward and then moved either left or right out of the vehicle from behind the seatbelts.

How to remove the rear seat


Rear seats are fastened in many different ways. On most cars, the base part of the seat is held in place by a metal snap going into a hole. To remove, pull on the front of the seat. Some cars have a metal or plastic tab that has to be pulled, pushed, or moved to the side, while pulling on the front of the seat. Other cars, mainly German, use bolts or screws in the front to hold the base of the seat. Many American car seats (GM) have a hook that fits into a metal brace. To remove the bottom part of the seat push hard towards the back and then up. Most Hondas use a bolt (10MM) on the back part of the seat between the bottom part of the seat and the back support (towards the middle) that has to be removed. Then the seat can be pulled up from the back. Before you pull on a seat, try to analyze what is holding it. Most seats do not need a lot of force to be removed, they all have a trick.
The back support on the rear seat is a bit more standard in the way it is fastened. At the top, there are 2, 3 or 4 pieces of metal that go into a hole. There are 2 or more bolts that hold the backrest at the bottom. Once you have removed the bottom part of the seat, take the screws or bolts out, and slide the back rest up and out. On a few cars you have to remove the rear deck and other side panels out first. If you can't figure it out, remove the panels in the other side of the backrest (trunk) and examine carefully how the seat is fastened.

Hope this helps, good luck!

There's a relatively easy answer.
You were told correctly that you have to take out the back seats.
This is easy.
Between the lower cushion parts of the back seats is a small, cucumber size piece of leather trim, this you simply pull out.
Under this are some manually screwed in bolts, a bit like the dials on your old car radio, take them out, then juggle out the lower cushions.
On fitting they're kind of pushed under the side panels (under the window) so you have to pull hard.
Next there are a couple of bolts holding the backrest in place, these are at the bottom of the backrest, remove.
You only need to remove the RH backrest. (Right hand means on the left if you're facing backwards).
After these are out all that holds the backrest is a spring 'jaw'.
To explain how this works, let me explain something.
Before the seats were in, if you were fitting the backrest and you were kneeling in the car, looking at the metal (body) backrest support you would see a 2" x 2" hole in the Body.
On the back of your seat panel is a large metal clip, it works a bit like a big paper clip.
This slides upwards into the metal body (hole) behind to fit, down to take the backrest out, so slide the seat panel downwards.
Now the seats are out.
Here you will see a handle like on a car bonnet release. Pull it, voila.
I had a similar charging availability problem to yours last year, all I did was about once a week, parked the car on the drive (overnight at least), put it on charge, gathered the cable to the right hand rear boot corner where there's plently of clearance then locked the boot.
You won't damage the wire, just trap it in the seal.
My battery never went flat once.
If you haven't got a drive do it at a friends.
Good luck.
