Fold down the seatback cushions, remove the four bolts that hold it to the body. Then push up on the seatback, and it should come out.

For the bottom, push down and toward the front of the car and it should unhook.

On the bottom cushion, that should be down and to the rear of the car, not the front, at least on my Gen 4 and Wes's Gen 3...

If you cover everything up with wood or something you might end up exactly where you were before weight wise, depending what you use, etc. The bottom portion of the seat weighs next to nothing and the back isn't really all that heavy, but of course it's up to you whether it's worth it.

If you really want to make it look decent, you might be able to carpet the buttom and perhaps get a sheet of CF cut to fit the back? Donno really.

I've pulled the rears to race and it isn't worth it. It isn't enough weight lose. But definately the spare tire and sub box. Or if your name is Wessy you could strip every extra peice of car and pile it against the fence. Sorry I don't have the pic maybe someone else can post it.

The backseat also serves as a very nice noise insulator. I took my backseat out when I did my third brakelight mod. Figured I would drive around for a while to see how I like it. I hated it. Alot of road noise comes in through the trunk. You can hear the fuel pump and my Borlas become very loud without that rear seat in place.

I hate that I did it a Norwalk and the roar of the tires on the track prep would make you deaf and the fuel pump is annoying.

Jesus Christ! ........ Put the goddamn seat back in the car along with the spare you have probably taken out of the trunk
