    Rear fold down seat take-apart?

    1990 SC with split rear seat backs...

    I've got the entire rear upper seat section out of the car...who knows how to remove the folding sections from the surrounding bolster? Do you have to skin those sections first, or...? thanks

    Revived from the dead. You're usually quick to reply also. Dis you ever remove the center sections. I have 2 fold downs that I am trying to combine as 1 with the best sections of leather from each.

    Thanks in advance.

    Tim:

    As I recall, they come out w/the bolster...

    I swapped my bolster twice now, but I don't recall anything major when retaining the original seat backs as part of that process:

    You might need to unzip the covers (bottom edges) to access fasteners?

    I have the seat out of the car just trying to interchange the 60 section of the fold down from 1 to the other. Didnt know if the entire cushion comes off or if removal or each skin and swapping is the method.

    I don't remember the details, but I know I didn't fully skin either section.

    If you're only doing the 60% side cover, it might be less work to swap skins, tho.
