Red face Seat removal

Hi there

I've searched the forum for removing the front seats, but can't find a useful thread.

Would anyone have a thread handy to show me how to uninstall the front seats on the Cobalt SS?

Or is there a DIY article?

Or .... there's a bolt with a head, but my sockets can't fit between the head of the bolt (looks like a 14mm or so) and the side of the rail.

Thanks! R

It has two bolts on the back of the seat, take those off then push the seat to the front and un clip the harness for the airbags and pull them out it's really simple

Use a wrench. Pretty sure I was able to use a socket on mine though. I just slid the seat up and went to town. As stated above, don't forget to unclip the airbag connector.

Thanks I found the bolts - initially I thought the seat came out by taking out the bolts within the rail - I remember on a Porsche seat grinding down a 13 mm socket to get around the bolt. The Cobalt is really easy once I discovered the real bolts were under the plastic covers (duh on my part) after reading your notes.
