Seat Removal in a Tahoe

by Jeremy Holt

The Chevrolet Tahoe has two individual bucket seats in the front for the driver and passenger, and a smaller, center seat that doubles as a console and armrest when not in use. In the rear, there's a fully adjustable 60/40 bench seat set on sliders. Removing the seats is a straightforward task, but bear in mind that they are heavy and awkward, especially in the back. Once the seats are unbolted from the floor, have an assistant help you remove them if possible.

Front Seats

Slide the driver's seat all the way forward on its track. Locate the track-to-floor mounting bolts at each side of the seat where it attaches to the floor. Remove the bolts with a socket wrench with an extension attached.

Slide the seat all the way back on its track and remove the track-to-floor mounting bolts at front of the seat as above.

Lift the driver's seat up from the floor and out of the vehicle.

Remove the front passenger seat in the same way.

Use a socket wrench to remove the floor mounting bolts from the center seat after both front outer seats are removed. Lift the seat up and out of the vehicle.

Rear 60/40 Seats

Slide the larger seat forward on its track. Locate the track-to-floor mounting bolts at each side of the seat where it attaches to the floor. Remove the bolts with a socket wrench with an extension attached.

Slide the seat all the way back on its track and remove the track-to-floor mounting bolts at front of the seat as above. Lift the seat up from the floor and out of the vehicle.

Remove the smaller rear seat in the same way.
