406 Back seat

Post by Henrique »

Hi, I have a 1998 406 1.9 TD, having difficulty in removing the back seat, I have removed the two front screws on either side of the seat but still wont come out. I have seen on youtube and appears to come out very easy, but mine is as if something is holding it at the back, please can any one help, any suggestions?
Sorry I'm trying to get to fuel sending unit.

I think you have to lift up the front of the base, and slide it towards you.....?
I've only had estates which are completely different.

I've just looked at Frank's video on YouTube, there is a big black metal bracket - so it seems you may need to lift the front slightly, push the whole base backwards and up to clear the bracket, then slide it forwards....

If you have an estate, the base just tilts forwards if you slide your hand down the back and lift, if use the fabric loop handle if it's poking out.
