I'm going to be running my sound system cables either Thursday or Friday, and was wondering if its possible to lower the back seat in my 1995 Ford Taurus LX. If I can't lower it, how do I remove it? I need to run the power and RCA's to the trunk, and need to know how to get this seat out of the way by the end of the week. Thank you.

Well, if it's anything like the gen III - and i think it is... you have to remove the seat cushion first. You do that by feeling around at the bottom front edge of the cushion, on either side - you'll feel a hard spot where there's a metal brace - you have to push down on that pretty hard and push it back, as it hooks under a hook on the body under the seat. There's one on each side to release, positioned about centre of where the passengers would be sitting. Once you have the seat cushion off, you'll see nuts at the bottom of the rear seat on either side. Remove those bolts and lift the seat out.

If a Gen II owner reads this, perhaps they'll correct me, but i think that's how it comes out.

I have a tendancy to wear my mind on my sleeve. I have a history of losing my shirt.

No correction needed ! sounds the same as far as I can remember. Also, I didnt have to take the seat back out, I snuck the wires through there near the bottom corner of the seat back.

That's pretty much right. Except you don't have to push down on the cushion, just push it back and lift up.

After the seat back is unbolted it slides up out of the brackets on each side.


Have a vacuum cleaner handy.

Gone elsewhere in search of a pleasant Taurus/Sable forum run by people who actually care.

You push down to unhook the seat cushion, then u pull up and in towards u to remove it. The bolts to remove the back seat is next to the seat belt thing on top of the back seat. That's how i did it when i did my rear suspensions.
