Defender seat runners

Recommended Posts

I am halfway through changing my seats in a TD5 defender but cannot get the runners apart. There are 3 screw heads on each side but I am struggling to get these out. Any suggestions/ advice on correct pozi/screwdriver. My Phillips #3 is not budging them.

Try turning the screwdriver whilst knocking the head with a hammer. Otherwise drill out and replace with countersunk Allen bolts. The only reason to split the runners is to change the plastic clips which the seat base snaps into

The bolts go into riv nuts and my experience of trying to undo them was that the riv nut starts spinning every time...

I drill the heads off, remove the frame from the runners, you then have a long stud to grip and unscrew if it will, if not, cut it off, knock the riv nut out and install a new riv nut.
