Cannot find how the rear seat is attached! Want to save the leather from the crusher coming in a couple of days. Any tips? Pics? Thanks! Bob

Releasing the latches is a Swedish IQ test

Robert (rspi) Spinner has a good you tube video on this

I watched Robert's video and managed to get the passenger side lock clip out but the seat will not budge. Which direction should it be pulled? Also managed to snap off the top of the lock clip on the driver's side and now can barely see it let alone get hold of it to remove it. Curse whoever designed this devil's device! Sawzall time?

Got it apart finally. Then there's the puzzle of how to remove headrests. Ended up breaking stuff.
