Removing the front middle seat

It's held on by 4 bolts at each corner that go through the floor. You need to remove the seat base and the metal inspection cover (4 screws) to get at the nuts on the other end. Or you could undo from under the vehicle with someone securing the bolts from inside.

The two bolts under at the back are under the back rest, so you need to use a spanner instead of a socket. I think they're 13mm.

I lost a lot of skin from my knuckles as being underneath, the bolt threads/nuts were quite rusty. Don't want to do it again for a while! Good luck.

Seat base should remove same as the outers. Just lift on the leading edge. However, could be stiffer as it is less likely to be removed.

Then it is bolted down at 4 corners. If the nuts are not captive then either get someone underneath to hold with a spanner or remove the panel in the seatbox (4-6 screws) and spanner it yourself.

Thanks for all the advice people, after lifting up the base and the panel it wasn't too hard although I undid the outer seatbelts before I noticed the other bolts in the muck! good clean up now and fitted some camping mat to deaden the noise till me cubby box arrives Off to Brum in the morning to deliver the seat.
