Hi Anonymous, seat removal can range from the simple and obvious to the complex and baffling for the novice new Harley Davidson owner. Seems like the more expensive the bike is the harder it is to remove the seat. So let's start with the most expensive. 99% of all Harley seats have a male tounge in the front that slides into a female reciever that is either bolted or welded to the frame just behind the fuel tank. For this reason when ever you are removing a seat you must always slide it backwards 3-5 inches. Next they may may have a bolt on each side usually under a flap on the seat. Then there is the seat strap that is secured on both sides, only one side needs to be removed. A single phillips head bolt can secure it to the rear fender or it may have a bracket with two studs secured by nuts or knobs to fasten the rear portion of the seat. On newer model short seats there may be a "T" stud that locks in the rear portion of the seat just a few inches in front of the rear seat bolt, you have to push forward and lift up after you remove the bolt. If you have a pillion pad or passenger seat that snugs up against the front seat there can be a bolt securing the two to the rear fender, you have to get your hand in between the two seats and force seperation of seat material to see and gain acess to the bolt. Finally there is the rear seat bolt in the back that is the caboose of seat fasteners, usually a large chrome bracket, that screws into the rear fender. Care must be exercised in covering this shinny bauble with your hand during the sliding back procedure so as to NOT scratch the tour pak. So when all the hidden and mysterious fasteners have been removed, it's lift up in the rear, slide backwards a few inches and bingo you have mastered the impossible. Good luck.

How to remove back seat on 1999 i30 plus backrest part


You need to remove the rear seat cushion to get to the holding bolts of the rear seat rest.
To remove the seat cushion, check under the front portion of the seat for any holding clips that if pulled or pressed will release the seat.
After removing the cushion, you would see a bolt on either side of the seat rest. Remove them and lift the seat upwards to dislodge it from the locking tabs behind it.

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 does the back seat (back section not the seat section) come out??? There is a wire behind the back rest section but we cannot get the wire over the latch that secures it????


you'll need to remove the seat first. There should be a couple of bolts behind the seat cushion that need to be removed and then the rear of the seat will lift up.

Head Restraints Each front seat is equipped with dual-post design front seat back head restraint (611A08). The front seat back head restraint is installed as follows:
  • It travels on dual posts which have notches to engage a spring-loaded catch in the guide.
  • The front seat back spring assembly retains the front seat head rest guide rod sleeve (610A16).
  • The front seat back head restraint is adjustable from its normal position to a raised position of approximately 25 mm (1 inch).

03. Pull the head rest up as far as it will go
04. Take a small flat head screwdriver and slide in into one of the holes surrounding the head rest poles

07. Repeat steps 4-6 for the second head rest pole
