    Default How to remove front seats for cleaning?

    I have a question. Currently, my interior is clean (and that's hard for me to say, as someone who has been clinically diagnosed with OCD), but eventually I will want to remove the seats to deep-clean (reach under where the vacuum attachments cannot go, and clean the carpeted sides of the console) in about a year or so.

    The other major reason is that I want to give my seats a good steam cleaning while they're out of the car (I have cloth seats as I don't like the cracking/splitting problem most leather seats seem to have in less than five years). It will be easier to give them a thorough clean with them out of the car. Thus far I've only cleaned them with the extension wand of my carpet cleaner. How much difficulty is involved in this? I know that there is an airbag on the side as well as the wiring for the head restraint/seat adjustments, is it just a simple plug connector?

    Ill post a link for you to read. Its fairly straight forward. For safety reasons do yourself a favor and disconnect the negative side of the battery and let the car sit before you disconnect anything airbag related. They say 20 minutes and I agree. http://www.ehow.com/how_5865441_remo...s-airbags.html

    Only 4 bolts hold in seat. Use a 19mm socket. The hard part is disconnecting the wires. There are 2. One is easy and the other has a safety lock in addition to the normal clip.

    On the 2016~2017 Chrysler 200 they used a fastener on it's seats called mortorq
    that requires a special socket to remove..
    See..
    https://www.assemblymag.com/articles...-seat-assembly...
    So another oddball tool that will get used once or twice and then delegated to the unused tool shelf...
    I wrote this so that others would know what socket(s) to get to remove the front seats...
