How to Remove the Back Seat of a 2000 Ford Focusby Zyon Silket
You can remove the back seat of a 2000 Ford Focus to add more room to haul objects. The seat back acts as the rear of the trunk. When you remove the seat back, you can place things in the trunk that extend into the cabin of the Ford Focus. You would also need to remove the lower seat if you needed to gain access to the fuel pump. There is an access panel under the seat that allows you to access the fuel tank.
Grab the top of the seat back on the passenger side and pull the seat back forward (toward the front of the Focus). When you pull on the seat back, it disengages from the retaining clips that secure the seat back to the steel trunk frame.
Grab the top of the seat back on the driver's side and pull the seat back forward (toward the front of the Focus.) This removes the second retaining clip from the metal trunk frame.
Lift up on the seat back and remove it through the passenger door.
Grab the base of the seat on the passenger side and lift up on the seat to pull the retaining pins out of the floor pan. Continue to pull up on the seat as you move from the passenger side to the driver's side. There are four retaining pins across the bottom of the seat.
Remove the base of the seat from the vehicle through the passenger door.
