How to Remove the Seat on a Honda Accord

by Marlon Trotsky

After years of use, the seats in your Honda Accord tend to wear down, and maybe even tear. You may also want to take the seats out to make room for any cargo you may be hauling. While some people might rush to take their Accord into an auto shop, replacing the seats in your car is not as daunting a task as it might seem. In fact, you can remove the seats in a matter of minutes.

Fold the seat down by pulling the release latch, making sure that the seat is all the way forward.

Pull back the seat assembly and fold down the seats. Pull up the carpet around the seat by using a trim removal tool to release the rivets.

Unscrew the bolts holding the seat frame down using a socket wrench. There are two sets of bolts on either side of each seat. You will also have to remove the seat bracket. If your car has a power seat, disconnect the battery before attempting to remove the bolts.

Lift the seat up and out of the car door. You may have to turn the seat on its side to negotiate it out of the car.
