How do I get the back seats out?

Recommended Posts

I think I have hit the biggest frustration since I got my Carrera.

I am in the process of removing the back seats and have taken everything off except for the black plastic piece in the middle between the seat backs. I was told to pull this straight towards the front of the car. Try as I might, it wont move.

Has anyone got any tips to help me remove this without breaking it?

There is a post, about 6 inches long, which is the hinge for the seats in the center. It sits in a metal "cradle" and is held in place by a set screw. The black plastic piece you are referring to fits on top of this assembly, with two molded-in semicircular bits that snap down securely on top of the post. I got mine off by prying the plastic piece up with a screwdriver. I thought I was going to break it but it came off ok with only some minor stretching of the semicircular bits. It does take some force to get it off. Worst case scenario if you broke the piece would be to by a new one. Even with Porsche prices, it couldn't be more than a few bucks.

I bought a kit from Schatz Motorsports with pieces to plug all the leftover holes form the seat removal. It includes a short little post which goes back in that cradle so that the plastic molding has something to snap to, but doesn't stick out on either side. The kit was originally designed to be used with the Tequipment roll bar and sold for about $50. Good luck!.
