Removing the folding rear seat

Anyone have experience taking out the back seat on a wagon?

The bottom cushions were cake.

The seatbacks, it looks like there is a way to remove them off the pivot/hinge but its not clear, maybe press in a certain spot while lifting away.

TIA.

Yeah IIRC you just have to push it the right way while lifting. It's tricky.

Of the 60/40 split, I got the 40 out and replaced, though the little collar isnt quite latching-i'll worry about it later.

The 60 is different, I think there is a much beefier collar/latch that is much harder to get to.

Can't wait for you to figure it out and see pics of the new interior.

No it's a pain in the ass to get it out its a bit tricky but there's nothing inherently difficult about it.

Got it in today. Never would have figured it out without the WIS.

Once you remove the 40 section, the chunky hinge pin, actually is threaded into the 60 portion and removes with a 13mm. Once thats done, lift the corner of the 60 by the door straight up. You will also need an 18mm or 19mm to do the central seatbelt.
