How do you remove the rear seat cushion from a Toyota Camry?
Answer Put your head down in the footwell and look at the bottom (center) of the seat. You will see a small silver wire about 3" long. Push this wire down and …back toward the back of the seat, when it pops down simply pull the seat cushion up.
While not specific to your car, most are the same. Just pull up on the front of the seat. Catches will be released on each side then you can pull forward and the entire seat c…an be removed. No nuts, no bolts, no fuss. The backrest is usually different and may involve removing some bolts. When in doubt, you can purchase a Haynes or Clymer manual for your car (about $25 but worth it) or download the entire factory service manual from Toyota (about $10 and a super bargain).
Remove the rear seat, it is held in with spring loaded clips near the front, just pull it up gently.. Fold down the back rests. You will see that the bolsters, the side suppor…ts, are separate, remove the bolt at the bottom near the floor, then slide it up towards the rear window, it will slip out of the retainer holes. Gently prise off the plastic trims from the sides, they come off quite easily. Undo the clips holding the rear parcel shelf, and it should be able to be lifted out. This exposes the speakers, as the speaker covers are part of the parcel shelf. You may have to get into the boot to undo the screws/bolts securing the speakers, from underneath. There is a good video on YouTube by someone called carolking67 or something like that, which explains the process very well.
Answer . Use a wide blade screwdriver and gently insert it between the plastic ring (goes around radio and ac controls) and the vinyl on the dash. Then pry the ring loose. …There is about six push in clips that hold it on. That is the worst of it. the rest should be obvious. Remove 4 bolts and the 2 wire harnesses from the back. I recomend buying an aftermarket wire kit that matched the new radio to the stock harnesses. makes life much easier. walmart and parts houses carry them cheap.
Reach down in the bite-line (where the seat cushion and the seat back meet). Pull up on the seat cushion until the cushion raises above the bottom of the seat back. Pull… the seat cushion towards the front. There are two metal tabs that are hooked into the front of the seat cushion that holds it in place; unhook these by moving the cushion forward. To replace, reverse the procedure, but make sure the seatbelt recepticles are exposed before pushing the seat cushion down into the bite-line.
Its easy, grab the front part of the seat cushion, pull it straight up, there are two clips, one on each side, that will unclip without breaking, when you pull up. Then there …is one loop at the back of the cushion that must be pulled forward and slightly up, this part can be a bit challenging, but with enough force it will slide off. It may help to squeeze your hand back to the loop and pull from there, if your rear seats fold down, that can also help. Getting it back on is easier than removal. Once the seat is removed, you will have access to the fuel tank (from above) where the fuel pump and filter are located. If you are changing the filter and pump, be extra careful to install all rubber o-rings or the job will fail. The shop manual says you should replace them, so that is recommended, but you can carefully remove them from the old and reuse if you do not have replacements.
Remove the cigarette lighter. Then on the same panel where the cigarette lighter is located slowly pry the panel out. It is held in place by pins. Once that panel is remov…ed you will see a few screws (three I believe) that need to be removed in order to get the radio out.
The trim that surrounds the stereo is held in place by snap-in* clips at the left and right bottom. You should be able to pop the trim off them by inserting a thin screwdrive…r on the right side ... in the middle is fine, and then again on the left side. The top of the trim also has a ridge that holds it in place. With the two clips disengaged, push the top of the molding towards the front of the car and slip it down and out, taking care not to fubar the cigarette lighter wiring. With the trim off, there are 3 screws and one plastic dongle that hold the stereo in place. Unscrew the 3 screws, only the top left one is not in plain view. The plastic dongle is next to the bottom right screw. I found it a pain to slide the stereo bracket off this stupid plastic thing, your mileage may vary.i don't know what if that's the correct name.Please keep in mind you don't have to take the plastic trim that covers the gauges......it looks like you should, but you don't.
Each seat has 4 nuts attaching to the floor. Just remove those nuts. Also do not forget about wires underneath of the seats especially if you have power seats.
I will assume you have the wheel off. Probably have rust between drum and axle hub. Try applying heat[don't burn your car up] and tapping on drum. There is a fairly new produc…t in the parts stores that you spray on to freeze the mating surface. Either procedure will fracture the rust at the interface. You could also try turning in the adjuster some to get the brake bands away from ID of drum. When you reassemble drum,apply a small quantity of anti-seize the drum where is contacts the axle. Burnish the anti-seize into the metal so that contact area is coated. You don't want gobs of anti-seize could get on brake surfaces. You need to acquire a couple of screws. The drums have two holes in them on the face and this is where the screws go, so you can screw them in, and tighten them until the drum face pops off. The proper size is 8mm with a 1.25 pitch.
I tried for an hour to do this on my own before I gave up. So don't feel bad if you can't do this - I think the design leaves a lot to be desired. I ended up going to the deal…er - and they had trouble too until the manager who had a Sienna came out and showed me. This is what we did to make it as easy as possible 1. Remove the Headrest of the seat you are removing. (Click release at base of headrest and pull up) 2. Move seat You are taking out all the way back 3. Move front seat all the way up 4. Use lever on side of seat to "Flip" seat up 5. Pull release strap (rear of seat you are taking out) 6. Lift seat out ** Note when putting the seat back in - put the small strip of rug over the back tracks in the floor. The reason fo this is when you are positioning the seat - it sometimes slips into the back tracks before you get the front ones lined up and clicked in the front tracks. Man - this is a PAIN when it happens. It gets stuck, cockeyed, and all messed up. You have to go inside the seat to click two red buttons to release, and it is a bear to do so.. Also, be sure to put the correct seat on the correct side. Yes, they do have sides as I found out the hard way. (Maybe on the leather seats only, but check all seats for the lever that folds them down, it should be on the side toward the door). Talk about PAIN. It's a real pain to take out a seat that is stuck because it's on the wrong side. FOLLOW UP QUESTION: Can you give details on the 2 red buttons used to release the back seats. I accidentally put the back side first and do not know how to release the seats.I would really appreciate a reply. Thank you.
Awnser based on 2006 Highlander w/ 3rd row seat. To remove either of the split rear seat. 1) Carefully pry off trim pieces at front and rear brackets - 4 locations.… 2) Remove side trim and trim near door threshold as needed (this is trim that will break possibly if seat removed without removing..I almost went there). 3) You can now see bright silver shiny bolts, 1 at front and either 1 or 2 at rear. Unscrew all of them, they need a 14mm socket and use larger socket driver as they are torqued ~40 ft-lb. 4) You can now remove seat by pulling up - there are guide pins at front so may need to move slightly forward while pulling up. I performed this procedure to remove left side rear seat (includes center section) to re-clip upholstery clips which had mysteriously become loose. Installation is of course reverse of the removal. Another bonus - have a vacuum, towels and cleaning detergent handy to clean up all of the junk that has dropped down below the seat!
How do you remove seats in a 2007 Camry SE
My wife bumped into my car with hers and put a dent in her 2008 Camry bumper. I had to take off the bumper to pop out the dent - here is how i did it: First, I started in th…e passenger side rear wheel well. There is a screw at the bottom and just unscrew it. After that, there is another screw holding on that side of the bumper. If you look at the line that separates the bumper cowling with the frame, there is another screw about three inches from the wheel well along that line. To get to it, you can feel for an opening under it that feels like you are sticking your finger into a test tube. Unscrew that screw and you are finished with that side of the car. Once I unscrewed those two screws, I was able to pull that side of the bumper cover off. If you look under the very back of the car, you will notice some more screws that hold on the bumper, including one of those plastic pieces that too many cars use these days. Since my wife only bumped the passenger rear, I only disassembled the right side of the bumper, popped the bump out and reattached that side of it. I figure you could just repeat the process with the driver side and then see where the other attach points are by gently tugging on the bumper. I do not know how to take out those little plastic plugs and be able to reuse them - that is why I didn't go farther than I did. I hope this helps a little.
2009 RAV- Just did it today, not easy I'm afraid. First, get yourself a small flathead screwdriver. Pull the plastic covers off the floor brackets to expose bolts( 2 in front,… 3 in rear) and remove the bolts obviously. There's a cylinder looking thing at the back of seat that houses cable ends to the seatback release, pull the grey clip off it. Now tip seat on its side for the F'n sucky part. Remove cylinder housing from seat mount, tiny flathead screwdriver to pry tabs up helps. Now moving toward front of seat you'll see another rectangular thing with a red tab in it. Remove that from seat mount as well like the cylinder housing. In rectangle thing, pull red tab out enough to release it from threads and push the cable back toward the cylinder and push red clip back down to hold in place. pull tops off both sides of to see what's going on in cylinder. Wiggle the cylinder around now it should be more slack and you'll see a opening in side that you can slide cable/end nut out, use your screwdriver to manipulate. It should pop out eventually or you can just muscle out of the top of the cylinder. If you've worked on bike brakes before, it's a lot like that. On the bigger seat there's a seatbelt you'll need to unhook from the bottom, push a flathead screwdriver in side slot ot release it. * You'll want a really small flathead screwdriver to reassemble the cylinder mechanism and some patience. The engineer had a cruel sense of humor when he/she thought that connection up on the seatback release, turns a 10 min seat pulling job into 30min, more if you don't know what the hell your doing at first!
sometimes you can pull up on the coushion and see 2 bolts one on each side some have plastic clips on each side pull them and it will release the seat the hardest ones are wh…en you have to sit in the seat do this on each side, sit down and as hard as you can push back and pull up at the same time. good luck
