I do not use the rear seats in my car, not right now anyways. So I am interested in removing them. Has anybody done this before and how? Seems pretty simple from what I have seen in my back seat. The seatbacks of the rear seats appears to be held on with torx screws which are impossible to loosen with the Saab provided torx screwdriver (all I got). The seat cushions appear easier with only two hinges holding them on (I already found and unplugged the connectors for the heated cushions). So how can I go about doing this? Should be simple I believe.

i get the weight and gas saving but would it really be worth it? i dont see how the rear seat coming out could make such a huge difference but oh well. :confused:

The rear seats weigh about 4oz, really thin and light, you'll get more noise in the cabin too, plus it will look crap........................(thats a "dont bother" by the way) ;)

Cambio, are you drag racing? If not leave them in, I drive by myself a lot as well and wonder why I didn't get a two seater. Every once in a while I need to carry 3 or 4 people and it all makes sense.

Okay, I'll just wash her then, looks like I drove through the Sahara theres so much dust--comes from our unpaved driveway... And yeah Raven, this was mostly for drag racing with my friends (at the local drag strip) which we were planning soon. If it makes no difference meh, I just wanted as much advantage as I could get...

I'd only do it for a weekend personally, every little bit helps at the strip. :cheesy: You might wanna try getting some torx sockets and a real rachet, it'lls be a great deal easier with leverage I'm guessing. ;)

LoL and it was good to mess with those seats! I found toothpaste, some money (Hey I need those 50 cents!) old report cards from the previous owner's school, mouthwash, tissues etc.

Found a bunch of info from the previous owner when I went through the little leather binder that the manual comes in.

He got the car new in 2001 and traded in a 1996 900 3-Door with 51,000 miles.

All interesting trivia I know, and..er..not related to this topic...

If you take the seats out, remember to hook the heated-seat power cable back up when you put them back in!

O_O the only thing ive seen in those rear speaker holes are harmon/kardon (did i spell that right?) speakers that can put out some bass. i noted those things while trying to fix the headrests. who knows how to stop those buttons from flying out the side when you put the headrest back up? theyre not even attached in my friends aero anymore.
