The seat base comes out with a sharp tug up and then a pull forward. Once you've got the seatpad out, you'll see a few bolts holding the back to the rear "bulkhead."

With mine, you just grab the lower front edge of the lower seat base, say with hands a metre apart..........and lift.
The seat is held in by clips in the base clasping the two tongues on the cross frame of the car..........no bolts.
The rear Upper is held in with bolts at the bottom and in the back behind the head rests.

Default '92 vert seat removal

On the rear seat bottom, look under the lip on the front edge of the seat. Some verts have several screws that attach the seat bottom to the frame. Remove these screws and the seat bottom slides forward and comes out easily. To remove the rear seat back, remove the 2 17mm bolts at the bottom of the seat back and then look for two vertical slits in the plastic liner in the well where the convertible top goes. The two slits are behind the head rests. Inside the slits are 10mm bolts. Remove these 2 10mm bolts. Then remove the two seat belt plastic covers - one on each side. Then lift the seat back up and out of the car.

Mine's a 92 vert and the seat base just pulls up at the front, no bolts. Good tug needed though. AFAIK the later verts were like this.

Seat bases- three types as far as I can find 90 and later verts- snap fasteners that you pull straight up, then forward. It appears that the 88-89 cars used a hex head bolts that had to removed, and earlier used screws. All hatchbacks I have run across to date have the latch in the back on a pull tab, then forward and rotate.

Default Success!

tugged the bottom seat out, found the 2x10mm behind the slits, pulled the 2x17mm, the whole thing is out, and ready for new wiring, thanks everyone!

dumb ? In an old post ..

Trying to flip my rear set bottom forward so I can drop the upper rear seat flat for cargo
the long bar and metal end attachments with the forward slots seem like it should pull out and pivot just like my 99

However I got these nice leather seats from a SAAB junkyard where they were stacked in another SAAB so I actually have no idea what year they are from

Will I have to remove the bar screws & just remove the entire base?
All the carpet is good so I don't want to rip everything out.

Also trying to figure out how to maintain the rear seatbelt pass through while removing the old junk hatch side panels. Not that I care for rear passengers

There's a press fitting washer you yank off a pencil thin shaft on either side of the swivel on left side and right side of rear seat bottom....you pull the pencil like rod out after removing the press fitting (looks like a washer) it has a name but can't remember just look at it. Then the bar and the rear seat bottom comes out as one. That's how it is on a 1991 and 1992 C900 anyhow. This is necessary for carpet removal and I believe I had to take it out to remove the old center tail pipe heat shield...anyhow, in regards to those inner quarter panels, just take the seat belt bolt off...it's a 19mm memory serving. Takes nominal time and effort.

Hope this helps should I be reading you correctly.

There is also a plastic tube that the said rod goes through, this need to be pushed out too, before seat removal. to remove the back there are two sping clips that need to be eased sideways and out, as there is a locating peg for it to fit in, this holds the back in place, also there is a black plastic washer needs to come off, if it breaks don't worry, I'm sure there are many without them, also to get the seat back pegs out of the 'U' shape holders(have a white plastic 'U' in them) you have to move the seat sideways to get one pieg to slide out, and then back the other to get the other peg out. It sounds complicated but it's just how it was done, and once you realise what's what it's easy. Make sure the white 'U' bits are in place when you replace the seat back or the the pegs will rattle in the 'U' shaped metal body parts. Just check that the leather seats you are getting, are the same as what you have, and do have the pegs etc on the end of the seat back as if not, they won't fit, as maybe off a 9000, or a 900 convertible, they will not fit a 900, without a lot of work/hastle
