Rear Seat Removal

How to remove back vertical seat?

Is this a test of some sort?

There are nut under the front of each seat bottom.

Nuts on what MY???

This forum section covers X300, X308, X350 and X358. (ALL DIFFERENT!!!)

(pick one)

G’day Rob,

First you have to remove both heelboard fusebox covers, one cross head screw per side, then there is a screw on each side which secures the seat bottom, which you have to remove.

Once the seat bottom is removed you will see two bolts or large screws which secure the seat back to the car and when these are removed you will be able to take out the seat back by lifting it a little.

Cheers,
Jeff.

Thank you Jeff!

No, it is not a test.

I guess I don’t know anything about X300, X308, X350 and X358.
My experience is with XJS, XJ6 and a little bit of E Type.

If you don’t know ‘the-trick’ you will NEVER disassemble a rear seat in the X350.
COMPLETELY different from the earlier cars. Similar to S-Type but ‘the trick’ is the rear seat squab release.

You have GOT to know what car you are working on before ‘blanket’ statements can be made.

The little plastic tabs under the seat cushion are hard to reach on some cars.(no screws at all)
