REMOVAL & INSTALLATION



See Figures 1 through 8

If your vehicle is equipped with power seats, disconnect the negative battery cable and unplug the motor electrical connection prior to removing the seat.

Most vehicles covered by this information are equipped with bench seats. Removal of the bench seat assembly is a relatively simple process. Locate and remove the retainers (usually nuts), then carefully lift the seat and adjuster from the floor pan.

Removal of a bucket seat is also a relatively simple process, once you find the retainers. On some vehicles you will have to remove trim covers which are used to hide the seat adjuster mounting bolts. Also, power seats will have one or more electrical wiring connectors. Disconnect the negative battery cable then disengage the seat wiring connectors before attempting to remove the seat. Once the nuts are removed and any wiring has been disconnected, lift the bucket seat and adjuster from the vehicle. When installing, all seat adjuster to floor pan nuts are tightened to 33 ft. lbs. (45 Nm).

To remove the jump seat on extended cab models, remove the trim panel and remove the bolts and nuts securing the seat support to the floor. Remove the seat from the vehicle. When installing, tighten the seat support to floor pan nuts and bolts to 35 ft. lbs. (47 Nm).

To remove the rear seats on utility models, remove the trim panel and unfasten the retainers securing the seat to the floor. To reach the rear retainers you may have to fold the seat forward to access them. Remove the seat from the vehicle. When installing, tighten the seat retainers to 59 ft. lbs. (40 Nm).
