The pivot is spring loaded. You pry it toward the wheel house just enough to clear a tab in the slot that is in the way as far as pulling the pivot feature up and out of the bracket on the wheel house. If you can't figure it out, give me s call.

With the seatback standing up, take a large 3/8" flat screwdriver, and pry the nickel sized disc towards the outside of the car, and lift the seat back enough to put a scrap of 2x4 under it so it doesn't snap back in, then do the other side.

No you're copying him I sold him the 83 245GLT several years ago.

And I bought the blacknose from him and ran that for a couple years before that...

Oh! OK I can see that. Maybe my liking 240s so much comes from driving 145s so much in the 70s... Every place I worked seemed to have 145 wag-goons as work cars, tow rigs etc...(of course my dream car was Peugeot 404 diesel 'Break")

Something like this:


Loaded to the gills and cruise 75-80mph I'd get 35 mpg in my diesel sedan...just wanted the space and brakes on the wagon..(sigh)

Då mamma köpte nya och slängde de gamla var livet förstört, man var helt enkelt en tönt tills man lyckats slita ner de nya. Självklart var mamma vansinnig men vad gjorde väl det, en tönt kunde man bara inte vara under några omständigheter.

This place is amazing. With a few keystrokes, you can find just about anything.

I've probably removed over a hundred of those rear seats and sometimes they can be very uncooperative.

Only took me a year to come to the "It's me or the seat!" moment... Thankfully the seat realized the futility of resistance. Just got to out smart them.
