    ok if you picture two people sitting in your back seat, in the middle of each cushion where the bottom meets the carpet there is a little clip push that on both and pull out seat its almost like some headrests you have to push that button to push them down

    My clip don't work... So it's just one big yank on each spot in order to get them out.. And some cursing when I can't get them to budge.. :hammer: :hammer:

    good luck dying your seats, the last person i saw dye their own seats ended up having all the dye come off onto their clothes as they drove the car for months.

    damn thats what i didn;t want to happen...im wanting to keep the red theme kinda but over load it with more black to basically have only the dash pad be red...i thought about just swapping black seats in but the centers are gray and that would look totally gay... and i really ...really dont want to put leather seats in the car i hate leather...but it looks like the only way i am going to get black seats

    I took pics of the post on the seat bottom & the spring loaded clip when I finally got my seat out...I found that the seat belt buckle was the best tool to use to push in the spring loaded part while pulling up on the seat bottom. Remember it is in the center of each seating portion. Now I can do it in 10 seconds...LOL

    No prob...I figured more than just me would like to see exactly what they were dealing with. Like I said the seat belt buckle metal end works great on the spring loaded release.

    yeah im just debating getting black leather seats even though i dont care much for leather... i think that the dye will bleed into my clothes if i jump in the car after working and im sweaty or something that would totally piss me off...
