    Non-functional power seat motor...how to remove seat?

    Any recomendations? The worst thing is that the seat is positioned right above the two rear bolts so i cant get anything to fit under there to get them removed. I hope some of you can get me some tips.

    There are four nuts that hold it down. One on each corner. Pull the plastic covers off the bolts and wrench them off. The rear ones can be hard to get at without moving the seat forward and I'm not sure how to move it forward without assist. This because they are on the inner side of the rails. A box end wrench should be able to get it done.

    The fronts are easier as they are at the tip of the rails.

    I got the two front bolts out, but the problem lies in the rear ones. The seat is over those so i cant even see how to get to the rear two.

    You may be able to get at them from about a 45 degree angle with a long extension and a u-joint on the socket.... That's how I got the fronts with the seat all the way forward.
