Default Seat removal

Does the front seat slide off the rail to the front or does the seat need to be un fastened from rails? on PV it just slides off to the front.

Mine has three bolts, one at the front and two at the back either side. Take them out and then lift off. 1/2"spanners required.

Thanks. It's over five years since I last had them out and I couldn't remember.

Are you wanting to remove the complete seat assembly from the car or just remove the bottom cushion? If you just want to remove the bottom cushion there are a couple of domed snaps at the front and rear of the bottom of the cushion that retain it to the frame. Pop those snaps off and the cushion lifts out - 30 second operation.

The 3 bolts that I think Burdekin is referring to are correct if you want to remove the seat as a complete unit.
