    How do I remove my rear seat? I have to pull out my carpet and I can't figure out how the rear seat comes out. I have a 79 Jimmy. My truck goes in the paint shop tomorrow morning and I have to get all this done tonight. Thanks.

    You remove the two seat bolts under the seat, and the one that bolts to the side. Three total. Easiest was is to fold the seat up, remove the two bolts. the remove the bolt on the pass side where the button is the fold the seat. Then all you have to do is pull it out.

    You have to fold the seat down and tip the whole works up...the two bolts are on the hinge at the lower front edge of the seat base. They can only be accessed when the seat is folded and then lifted forward.
    There is a little lever on the passenger side of the seat that needs to be pushed in for the seat back to drop flat down on top of the seat base. Then at the rear of the seat base there is what looks like a handle, pull up firmly and the whole works will pivot towards you.

    Sorry guys i can not get my seat to flip up after I fold it. What makes it move up? Is it the black handle thing on the floor behind it? The prior owner has it completely full of sand. It will not budge. I am so irritated right now. There is no way my truck is getting to the paint shop tomorrow at this rate. I still have to remove all the carpeting etc. and clean it all out so they can paint the bed etc.

    Yea that black handle next to the floor is what makes it fold up.

    You'll have to vacuum the sand out a bit at least. Then the handle may need some pursuading if its been unused for so long. Just pull up sharply on the black handle thing and it should flip up...

    In my 79 the handle is not pulled exactly upward. It's a bit of a forward motion. Also, some WD40 can help.

    Thanks guys, I finally got it up. Actually my b/f did. I vaccumed as much sand as I could with the shop vac. B/f ended up using a prybar to pull it up. The entire underneath of the seat was full of sand. The holes where the latches are were filled with sand. I don't know what the heck that guy did with all that sand, but it made me nutty!! I was so frustrated. I called the paint shop this morning and told them I would bring the truck in this weekend. I need more time to tear apart the truck. I still have to get the carpet/padding out. And remove everything from the truck. I also want to remove all my lights, bumpers and trim before taking it down. I don't want stuff masked off. They are spot welding 45 holes to cover the holes where the body moulding was that i removed, fixing 2 dents, doing a full color change, so they are going to paint my interior bed, tailgate, inside doors etc also. The only thing they wont paint for me is my dash. Anyway... I have lots of work to get to. Thanks again.
