    Get it done, does help a little and an ep2 needs all the help it can get, ran mine stripped for a year now, starting to get a bit tedious if Im honest.

    It is a very simple job to do, make sure you ditch the spare wheel aswell it is very heavy (unless it's a space saver) I think all together mine is nearly 90kg less. That includes front seats and wheels aswell.

    I took out my rear seats today and it only took me about 10 mins to do.

    look around near the seatbelt buckels, there is a 10mm bolt in the seat crease that holds the base in.

    remove this and then yank the base out at the front too.

    fold seats down.

    remove plastic cap and remove two 12mm bolts from large seat portion.

    remove large seat portion midle first, and then yoink it out of the hinge at the side of the car, just pulls out, but awkwardly.

    then remove bolt in the end of the small seat portion, 12mm IIRC.

    remove black hinge part and then push small seat towards side of car to unhook it from the middle and then yoink it out of the side of the car as before.


    you can now remove brackets and seatbelts etc, obviously trims aswell if you like or whatever, but thats the heavy stuff gone :Grin:
