SE6 Rear seat cushion

Post by Bitterend » Fri Sep 25, 2020 7:33 pm

Hi,
Need Help.
Perhaps someone could help my by telling me how to get the rear seat out. I have got to get the seatbelt off and the bolt is under the seat cushion. There is a screw either side right in the corner which appears to hold the seat in but other than that I can fibd nothing and it wont budge.
Is ther a knack to this, or a special tool to unclip something somewhere?

Presumably 6 series - pull it upwards at the front - they can be very stubborn.

And then get some penetrating oil for future use. Water Dispersant achieves little apart from dispersing water. You don't need to spend any money as you may have some lying around...

One of the best is ATF mixed with the same amount of Acetone, even used ATF is fine. Next best is neat diesel, then commercial products like PlusGas.
