Ok, I've undone the 2 bolts underneath the seats, but the seat won't budge! I know there are hooks underneath, but I can't figure out which way to move the seat so they un-hook! I've tried moving it every way possible but it doesn't seem to want to budge!

Help!

Thanks,
Ben

Slip a screwdriver between the 2 metal prongs and push :)

Doesn't seem to be working. I'm pushing the screwdriver against the back of the plastic part that is hooking on the metal. Am trying to lift the seats at the same time. Is this correct?

Thanks,
Ben

It WILL bend the seats if you just rip them upwards.

Did mine last year the bolts are the easy part, i placed a large long screw driver just under the metal prong push down on the handle using it as levrage and pulling the seat up at the same time. Soon heard a pop which the prong coming out, reapeated on other side then it just unhooked.

Hope thats helps

pri bar or big screwdriver works everytime. i normally do it just next to the prong and it doesnt damage anything

Waych your head on the roof when you pull! They take some force to pull them out and I always end up whacking my head! :doh:

lol... same here.... cant beat the universal screwdriver!

Also, if you remove the back part of the seat lift it up! not pull it. The seat latches into 2 metal prongs that stop it pulling forward.... as I found out when I bent the seat.....:spank:

I found and still have ( i think ) a map of some kind in Japanese!
I think it was from the docks when it was shipped?
