Write Up: How to remove Rear Seat & interior quarter panel

Once again, I got another write up for you to read.

I had to open up my interior in order to get to my striker plate since the threads were stripped.
However, maybe someone can find this write up useful for their own purposes.


*** STEP 1 ***
Remove the top portion of the seat.
Fold down the seat and you'll noticed two plastic tabs on either side of the seats. (One at each corner)
Carefully remove the plastic tabs.





*** STEP 2 ***
Pull back the carpet and you'll find a bolt that needs to remove.
Unbolt it and swing the hinge off the seat.
Now, the entire seat can be removed from the car.




*** STEP 3 ***

Next, Remove the bottom portion of the rear seat.
This is fairly simple.
Just pull on it and the front of the seat will pop out.
It is held by two loops (one on either side) attached to plastic taps located on the car.
Here is a picture of the loops.




*** STEP 4 ***
Push the seat belt buckles down through the opening.





*** STEP 5 ***
Pull down on the sleeves and remove the seats from the car.
There are two sleeves.









*** STEP 6 ***
Remove the hinge from the top portion of the rear seats.

*** STEP 7 ***
Pull off the plastic shelf cover.
It's held by four tabs and hooked from the bottom.
Simply pull from the top and swing downward to remove plastic trim.





*** STEP 8 ***
Remove C pillar plastic cover by pulling on it.
Careful not to break it because it's held by a lot of metal tabs.
If I'm correct, it's held by 7 tabs.





*** STEP 9 ***
When you are done with that, the rear side quarter panel will come off simply by pulling it out from the secured tabs.
There are five plastic tabs.





When you're done, your car will look like this.




Good luck on your projects.
I hope this write up has helped you...with whatever you're doing.
haha! I know, it's a random write up for nothing.

haha...
thanks

this is only because i just bought my car and it's got a few bugs on it that needed some attention.
so, i'm doing my best to fix her up.

plus, i'm hoping taking some pictures and posing them would help other's on the board.
maybe, they won't need the information now, but at least they can look it up later using the search.
