Removing the passenger seat

Removing the passenger seat

We have found that running cables under the rug is so much easier if the rug is loosened by removing the passenger seat, that I am now adding this to the install procedure. The bolts that mount the seats are difficult to remove as they have a form of locktite on the threads, so use at least a 3/8" drive to remove them. Once the seat is loose, take off the seat belt, so the seat can be completely removed from the car.
