How to Take the Seats Out of an HHR

by Shelby Winchell

The Chevrolet Heritage High Roof, or HHR for short, is considered a compact station wagon. The four-door vehicle seats up to five people, two in front and up to three in the back. It also has a trunk area that can be used for storage. Like most vehicles, the HHR comes with the seats pre-installed, but it is possible to take them out if you have the need to do so.

Step 1

Pull out the spare tire cover from the trunk area of the HHR.

Step 2

Locate the three nuts holding the rear storage compartment in place. These will be located near the spare tire.

Step 3

Unscrew nuts using a wrench.

Step 4

Find the seat mounting nuts and bolts. Remove them using an 18mm deep socket and ratchet.

Step 5

Remove the plastic covers from the rear seat cushion. These can be found in front of the seat cushion. Stick the flathead screwdriver under the bottom lip and pull up. A gentle pull should free them.

Step 6

Loosen and remove nuts holding rear seat in place. Repeat process until all nuts have been removed.

Pull the seat forward. A gentle tug will cause the seat to pivot towards the back head rest. Keep pulling until seat is dislodged and free to remove from vehicle.
