Default 2004 Taurus SE convert to drop down seats

I need my backseats to come down in my car due to my stereo system. Can i get SES seats that fold down and just install them into my SE? Mine are bolted up. Either i get fold down seats or they come off lol

Yup you can do the switch.
Be sure to get seats from a 2004 + model or the style will be different.

Will the seats be a drop bolt in? Eg: bolt the bottom and it will then be able to fold down?

Everything should be there for the switch, including the holes for the bolts.

IIRC, there are 2 bolts on each side to take out and then lift the rear section straight up to remove.

The bottom cushion is the same on folding/nonfolding rear seats.

Four 13mm bolts hold the fold down seat in, you see 'em when you unfold the seat. No bolts on bottom like yours. Remember you have to remove the center seat belt at the bottom to guide through the hole at the top and take the plastic trim panels behind the seat of that donor car. Easy mod.

GPI Attitude 15" D1.4
AQ2200D
SSL EV1600.2
Powerbass 3XL-6502s
Custom single 15" enclosure (3.6cuft net @ 30hz)
Just a single run 1/0

A lot of that was from my old car, and some parts didnt fit. That setup was a 144db+ cert system, the new is as followed

Kenwood Exceleon X-596
2 SPLAudio DAD BD 12" woofers
AQ2200D
<will be looking for new 4chan since ill be using deck speakers>
Powerbass 2XL 6x8s (2 now, 4 later)
Custom dual 12" enclosure (5cuft net @ 29hz) <****ing MASSIVE
XS Power D3100
Big 3 + 1 run of tsunami 1/0 to the back, KNU Kolossus to the amplifier, over 700A of fusing
Getting my stock alt rebuilt into a 150A
And soon an XS Power D2400 under the hood

The box wont fit without the backseats removed, and they will stay that way. (my Attitude sounded muffled in the taurus due to no air flow... before it blew :/)

Wind machine)))
