How to Remove the Rear Seat in a 2006 Nissan Sentra

by Susan Revermann

Some cars come equipped with seats that fold while others have permanent seats that do not move. Some people choose to remove their car seats for extra storage space or to replace or repair the seat. Removing the rear seat of your 2006 Nissan Sentra will allow you to do such things. Just make sure no one rides in the rear seat area without the seat in its proper placement and with their seat belt attached.

60/40 Hinged Seat Removal

Open the trunk of your 2006 Nissan Sentra. Pull the rear seat release knob that is located on the left side of the trunk. Push the seat forward slowly to make it fold down. If you push it forward too fast, the middle seat belt may lock up.

Get into the back seat of the Sentra. Look where the seat meets the carpet on the bottom part of the seat, and find the two tabs on each side. Pull the tabs to release the bottom sections of the rear seat.

Grab the lower part of the seat, and lift up. This should release the seat from its hooks so you can remove the seat.

Fixed Seat Removal

Get into the back seat of the Sentra. Locate the bolt that holds the center seat belt in place between the seats. Remove this bolt with a socket wrench, and put it to the side.

Remove the mounting bolts that run along the outside perimeter and down the middle of the back seat. There will be one on each side and two in the middle. Place the bolts to the side.

Look where the seat meets the carpet on the bottom part of the seat, and find the two tabs on each side. Pull the tabs to release the bottom sections of the rear seat.

Grab the lower part of the seat, and lift up to release the seat from its hooks so you can remove the seat.
