    Default How to Remove 86 Power seat that doesn't work

    Any suggestions on how to remove the driver's power seat without the power motor working?

    Also, how do I remove the plastic covers to gain access to the seat bolts? It looks like they snap on.

    Thanks.

    Ive done it twice, hard to explain...basically you haveto getcreativewith yourtoolsatweird anglesand turn each nut slowly or you can remove the seat bottom from the track. You can also disconnect the drive cable and turn it to slowly move the track.

    How do I remove the covers to gain access to the nuts for removal? The passenger side covers where held on by screws, but the driver's side doesn't have screws. How are the driver's side covers held on?

    Figured it out...the driver's seat covers over the nuts holding the seat in are held in by screws on the 2 front covers and by pins on the rear covers...disconnected the drive motor from the seat track and was then able to slide the seat back to gain access to the front covers and nuts...seat is now out.

    Now comes the real fun and figuring out what works and what doesn't work on the drive motor.

    if you ever need to remove a power seat in a junkyard. cut the power wire and hook it to a jumper pack.
