    I have a 2 door convertible. Ther are no door handles. If it was like a front door panel, it would be easy. At the top is a clip to hold the boot on. The panel has an arm rest, speakers, and a cover above the rest.

To remove the door panel, remove any screws that are in the vicinity of pull handles and door pockets. These screws will be under little trim covers that you need to prise off to get to their heads. Look for the screws around the edge of the panel and also the screw in the latch release handle recess.
The lock knob, if there is one there, will have to be screwed off and then carefully work your way around the door, freeing the panel's clips from their holes in the door frame. (Doot panels are brittle and clip break out easily).
Finally the panel will probably have to be lifted out if the window slot. (If the panel does not come off, work out what is retaining it and remove that screw or slide it off the clip that is still holding the panel. Disconnect any electrical plugs behind the panel. Under the panel you will find a plastic dust sheet that is stuck to the door frame, remove this carefully, you will have to replace it before replacing the panel. Good luck, the access holes in the door inside panel are not very large and the job can be rather frustrating because you cannot get enough hands in and see what you are doing at the same time. Have a flashlight handy and a small mirror helps as well.

    There will be screws holding the arm rest on, look under the supports for screws or screw covers. The speakers will be part of the panel and should not need to be touched. The top cover would probably stay behind and the panel slide down under it. The panel itself would have clips like the door which ned to be levered out carefully.

How do I remove the headrests in order to install seat covers?

    Remove the headrests. Then slide the cover over the seat back cushion (Photo 5). Push the bottom straps through the gap and into the buckles just like you did on the bottom cushion (refer to Photo 3). Reconnect the bib panel and pull down on the rear portion of the seat back cover to remove wrinkles.

How to remove the backseat of a 1988 Chrysler LeBaron

You have to remove the bottom portion first. May be either two bolts holding it at the bottom, or more likely, you just push the seat backward to unhinge the clips holding it fast. Sometimes it takes a hefty push against the lower seat to undo it, one side at a time. Once you have the bottom out of the way, then you can remove the upper part. It may also have two bolts holding it at the bottom, or it may just have hooks from the seat into the car frame-push upward on the cushions and lift out.

I put a used sebring 1999 convertable top on my convertable everything is good with the exception that it wont go do i can hear that it wants to work but its not what could the problem be

Yes, without hydraulic fluid, it is not likely to work.

Firstly, a caveat, if you don't know what you are doing, it will be better to get an auto mechanic to do this.

I am also making an assumption, that you haven't a) messed up the electrical switch that operates it, and b) damaged the hydraulic pistons, or the hydraulic hoses in the process. If so, all bets are off, and back to get a mechanic to fix it.

IN that model, the Hydraulic pump, should be located behind the rear seat. The bottom cushion of the rear seat would pop out, there will be clamps at either side of the outer edge of the seat. The rear seat back, can be removed by removing the seat belt plate at the bottom of the seat back, and liftig the seat back straight upwards. There will be a sound barrier flap, and the pump will be behind that. ON the top of the pump, will be a rubber fill plug. remove it, and fill to the bottom of the fill hole.

  1. Rotate and raise the motor/pump assembly so the reservoir is in the up position. The rubber filler plug will be at the top.
  2. Raise the motor and pump fitting to at least 2" above the horizontal rear seat back reinforcement.
  3. Tilt the motor and pump assembly to approximately the 10 o'clock position, with the rubber filler plug still at the top.

CAUTION: The motor and pump assembly must remain in the current position until the rubber filler plug is reinstalled in step 7.

  1. Remove the rubber fill plug from the reservoir.
  2. Fill the hydraulic system by adding Dexron 2 Automatic Transmission Fluid to the bottom of the fill hole.

CAUTION: Do not operate the top switch in the "up", closing the top, direction.

  1. With two people, activate the top switch in the "down" (opening the top) position to fully retract the cylinder rods and hold for approximately 5 seconds, until the motor and pump stalls. A percolating or gurgle sound/feeling is an indication that the procedure is working.
  2. Top off the pump with Dexron III Automatic Transmission fluid and insert the filler plug.
You may need to "bleed" the hydraulics. As I said, this is probably better done as a mechanic job (it may also need two people).

I saw your post about removing the back seat of a 2000 buick lasabre and it wont budge any suggestions

All you have to do is pull up on the front part of the bottom part of the seat to remove it.It should have a snap on the drivers side and one on the passengers side.The back part does not come of without removing the nuts on the bottom.The battery is under the rear seat.That is why they made it easy to remove the rear seat bottom.Hope this helps.Good luck.

2001 mustang convertible. How do you remove the rear seat to access the motor or pump ot check oil level? Thanks, Bruce

The seat bottom is held in with 2 release buttons located left and right of the center of the seat. (see photo) push with a screw driver and lift, then pull the seat bottom forward and remove.

The rear seat back is help in place by 2 self tapping bolts on the lower left and right of the seat back near the floor, if I remember correctly you'll need a 10mm socket. Remove the 2 bolt and lift up to remove the seat back. When re installing the seat back do not over tighten the bolts they have a tendency to strip.
