How to remove rear seat back?

Recommended Posts

  • Admin

They are pretty much just like 996. Most 996's use a 6 mm allen wrench but some use a triple square.

For the older GT3 and folks that ordered a rollbar kit Porsche has a kit that covers the mounting holes left behind. 000 044 801 63. It is a kit that normally comes with the Porsche Tequipment Sport Roll Bar to cover up holes after you've removed the seats to install the bar. It includes a couple of nicely made silver painted caps, two large vinyl covered plugs, and a mini version of the pin that secures the center of the seatbacks so that you can reinstall the cap over the center mounting point. Chances are it will work on a 997 too.

Should rear seatbelts also be removed ? Is this easy ?

Well, you could. The rear side panels will need to come off to get to the belt bolts and in the end the belt (slotted) trim will still be there. I'd say 30 minutes to an hour if you have the right tools (and don't drop the front screw into the side of the chassis). ;)

thats what i thought you may be doing - I have 2 small kids too and this could be useful for me, but i reckon you need the back for stability of the seat - ours are both in uprights now (3.5yrs and 9mths old)

Same way, mine just slides off towards the bottom.

Hi Loren,

It's me again. I'm still trying to remove the cap that covers item #9. Does it require a special tool? I'm having a hard time trying to remove them. Maybe I should just ask the dealer?
