Discussion Thread: How To: Rear (Jump) seat removal
One of the things that I wanted to do to my brand new 2009 ranger was remove these seats. Here is the directions for removing the seats. The removal took about 1/2 hour per side, give or take. If you have access to air tools, it may be even quicker.
Seat prior to working on it
Tools that you will need:
Socket Driver w/ extensions
Trim clip removal tool
Remove the plastic Trim clip, then remove the larger piece of trim. It will pull off the metal base of the seat by pulling towards the front of the truck.
: Remove the two screws as shown in the photo. One is the Torx screw, the rest will be the 1/2" screws, This is easier to do with the seat folded down away from the back wall.
Remove the 1/2" screw from the other side (towards the middle of the truck) of the metal mount.
Fold the seat back to the stored position. You will be able to see two 1/2" screws underneath the seat and on top of the metal mounting plate. Remove these also.
Carefully remove the seat. Notice that you DO NOT have to remove the seatbelt mechanism as it is attached to the metal mount that you have now removed.
I am not sure what I am going to do for the "ugly" areas where the seats were sitting. Once I figure it out, I will post my solution here.
If you have any questions, please let me know
