SOURCE: Remove Seat to Wash

I still had my manual and it said to unscrew the back; and you do have to take out the top of the straps to get the pad off. I just did this last weekend and then re-install everything. It worked great! The only problem I found was that when the pad is washed, the pad backing gets caught in the velcro and needs to be removed.
Hope that helps!

He seow do i remove rear seat cushion in 2009 toyota camry

I just replaced my rear struts on my 2009 Camry Hybrid. This was the second time in my life I ever did this kind of work. The trick is to get access to the top of the strut. You have to fold down the back seat cushions. In my hybrid there are two pull levers in the trunk that release the seats. The levers are at the top of the trunk.

Once you fold down the seats, there will be two side cushions on the side of the seats that did not fold down. At the bottom of that side cushion, between the side cushion and the bottom seat is a bolt holding the side cushion on. It is way in the back so you will need an extension with a 12mm socket to get to the bolt. Dont be afraid to dig you had into the space to find the bolt. Once you unscrew the bolt, you can lift up on the side cushion and it will come out (lift upward). You now have a clear (and easy) access to the top of the strut.

On a 2005 chevrolet classic (malibu)...we removed the back seat bottom cushion for cleaning we can't figure out how the "black plastic latch" on each side of the bottom of the...

It needs to be pushed back hard, from the front bottom to get the brackets to pop into the slots-I kneel, facing the cushion, on the rear floor (have to move the front seats forward) and use my knee to push the cushion into the slots.

Right side heated seat not heating-The light on the button comes on but seat stays cold-left side works ok??? help! wires look like they are pluged in. The seats never have heated a lot, they did not stay...

You seem to have 2 issues.

The first where the seat does not seem to heat, with the light staying on, I would think this to be a broken wire in the heating mat. The F-150 seat bottom is usually where this happens, right where the thigh would be on the seat.
To test, on the heated seat module under the seat, the Yellow w/ Light Blue stripe wire goes to the seat bottom then to the Gray w/ Light Blue stripe wire to the seat back and then back to the Violet w/ Light Blue stripe wire to the heated seat module ( the bottom and back are in series ).
Unplug the connector, and with a meter set to resistance or ohms, 1st check the Yellow w/ Light Blue stripe wire to the Violet w/ light blue stripe wire. You should read a high resistance ( if it is a scale, you need to use the 1K or 10K ohm or scale range ). You should get a very high resistance. If you read an open, there is a broken wire some where. 2nd check the Yellow w/ Light Blue stripe wire to the Gray w/ Light Blue stripe wire. If you have an open on the seat bottom and seat back, chances are this will also show an open.
If it reads as an open, you need to replace the heated seat mat that is open. When you take the seat cover off, it will be obvious where the problem is at. You can also consider a new seat bottom at the same time, if you are going to the trouble of removing the seat cover.

The seat not getting very hot could be a break down in the element or the temperature sensor ( also in the seat bottom ). The cure for this is to replace the seat bottom heated seat mat. IF it is the temp probe, this will have an impact on the seat bottom and back temperatures.

Over time I have noticed that the seats work a little less every year. Hard to tell until you get a new element for them how bad it is. The elements are MSRP $ 60.00, Ford dealer selling parts online : ~ 40.00 + S/H. The cushion is ~ MSRP 120.00 online price ~ 80.00.
The cushion is not required, as long as you are careful removing the old element. I usually replace the cushion if I am going to the trouble to remove the seat cover, specifically on the driver's side. With a new seat cushion, the truck will feel new again .

I can't get the rear seat back out of my 2006 Toyota Avalon.

Hello, and welcome to FixYa. Please let us assist you.

To remove the rear seat back, you first have to remove the rear seat bottom cushion. There are two clips on the front edge of the cushion, and they need to be disengaged; pull up with some force on the front edge of the cushion, where it meets the floor. Once the clips are disengaged, you can take the bottom cushion out of the car. Next, you will see the bolts that holds the rear seat backs onto the rear metal pane; all you now need to do is remove the bolts, and slide the seat backs up and out.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for advice today.

Heating element in seat ford f150

It can be done, but for the cost of a new heating element, it is worth the purchase. The replacement for my 2001 I think was ~ 40.00 ( online, plus shipping costs ) for the bottom cushion heating element.

You can take the same amount of work to remove the seat cushion, remove the cover, and try soldering the broken elements ( usually the thigh area in the front ), but you have a used element that is patched. The way I have seen it done, is actually using wire to close the circuit again, not create a new element section.
The seat bottom work is a bit much ( to make sure the cover is on straight and no creases ) to spend the time patching vs. replacing what is a fairly cheap part.
You can try Tasca and Southwest ford parts online for the current element pricing.
Depending on the shape of the cover and cushion itself, you might consider replacing those ( or the cushion ) as long as you have it apart, but this is getting a bit expensive ( would be ~ 200.00 for all 3 new ).
I did the cushion at the same time, and it made the world of difference to the feel of the seat, just like the day it came out of the factory.

Drivers seat in 2009 toyota sienna hurts my back-

This won't sound right to you but you need to consider the dealers' perspective in buying back the vehicle, especially at this time of year. 2010 models will be arriving and yours although virtually new can now only be sold as used. If you were to buy it today you would not pay full price either.
On to the solution. The Odyssey and the Sienna are both great vehicles, but a seat is specific to the user.Identical twins would sit different in the same seat.
I have been around the industry for a number of years. I have seen seats modified to fit specific drivers and full power lift seats for the disabled installed in a new Sienna. I drive a Sienna myself, fully loaded.
There are two things you can do with your seat, first, elevate the front of the cushion fully to support the weight of your thighs. Do this with the long seat cushion lever, lift it fully at the front.This will greatly reduce the strain on your lower back. Second, try an Obus Form or similar support from a Seating Specialty Store for your lumbar (lower back) area .Some people use a small roll or a wedge in this area.
IF you are patient you should be able to adapt your seat to a similar form to the Odyssey. Once have established that , go to either an orthopedic seating store, or a recommended Auto Upholstery shop and find out if they have a matching long term device to build into your seat. If necessary have the seat modified to support your back. There are seating specialists out there who can help you and make this vehicle enjoyable for you. Rather than take a loss on selling the vehicle , spend a few $100 and you will be set long term Toyota will not eliminate your entire warranty if you modify the seat, especially for medical issue,but they must protect themselves with a blanket policy. I know of a dealer who has an upholstery shop install aftermarket leather seating in their new TOYOTA vehicles frequently, as an option for new car purchasers who don`t want all the other upgrades from factory. This company also installs heaters in the seats in Toyotas and I have seen it done. The guys show up, unwrap the fabric and recover it with leather. This is not leather from factory. The seats still have full warranty coverage, so this can be done to your seat as well.
Be patient and find an upholstery shop recommended by someone who is familar with back issues. Office and household furniture and car seats get modified frequently for this exact reason.
Toyota will not cancel your entire warranty.
However they may restrict coverage on the modified seat itself, but if you find a good seating specialist to pad your seat similar to the Odyssey you will win with a great van.Remember there are erasons you chose this van. They have not changed. The seat can be adapted if you er patient and then you will enjoy driving again.
FYI in Canada, Toyota HEAD OFFICE actually works with an organization which modifies the SIENNA SEATING for disabled folks!!!!!! I have seen them at trade shows for mobilty products , such as scooters and walkers. Worst case, go to a scooter store or medical device company and start asking questions. Someone WILL help.
So I`m sure if you dig around you will be able to solve your problem without any warranty issues. All the Best.....

Replace rear seat belt in 1993 Toyota Corolla

OK. On the front edge of the seat bottom cushion, pull up hard, both sides. This will dislodge the 2 clamps that holds the seat cushion to the floor. Pull the seat cushion out & set it aside. You will now see the female latches bolted to the area where the rear of the seat cushion meets the rear seat back bottom. Remove the bolts (14 mm I think).
