Hello, doofus question time.

How do i take out the rear bench on a saloon? I've tried lifting the front part, which makes a rather strange wrenching noise and comes loose, but the back part seems firmly mounted in place.

Cheers :)

You need to take the headrests out and then get a screwdriver down behind the posts that the headrests go into. They have a catch at the back that realeases them as they are what holds the seat back to the bulkhead.

Proper nightmare to get out....have fun

I'm realising I wasn't very clear. I am after removing the sitting on part of the seat, I can get the front part of it to lift up, but it's still attached at the rear.

I think you just have to lift the front till it un-clips then it all comes out

Ahh, ok, i'll try again once this rain buggers off. Got the front seats in the house currently so i can give them a clean, they're _really_ grotty.





Beginning to get the impression a beige interior was probably not a good idea ;)

It'll be clothes dye. My wife has a 118d M sport with Lemon leather and she has to wear black to work....so after a year they are knackered

Yours will clean up ok. Get some good cleaner and a toothbrush. I would also look at some leather dye and polish and you will get em back to new

Aye, usual get up for me is black trousers. Any cleaner you'd recommend? I've currently got some autoglym stuff, and it doesn't seem to be doing much. I've not tried a toothbrush on it yet though, only a soft cloth.

I found Zaino leather cleaners plus a terry towel usually do a good job of getting rid of the really ingrained dirt.
