    Worth removing?

    I was just wondering if anyone would suggest removing the rear seats. No one ever sits in them and just wanted to know if it would be worth the time to remove them?

    I was planning on doing the same thing. When I first bought my car, I removed the rear and passenger seats to shampoo the carpet. (I know, I am crazy). They are very easy to remove. Took me about a 30 minutes to remove the rear seats with simple hand tools.
    But anyway, I took it out for a drive and felt the car was way quicker and I think you would get better mpgs..... Now I am defiantly doing it...haha

    I had mine removed along with the belt assemblies. made delete boxs that weighted less the ten pounds together. Put seats back in though beucase i didnt have matching carpet on them and they looked like crap. One day i will convert to black carpet and put black carpet to match on deleted then all will be well.

    Looks pretty clean if you remove the seat belts too. I am not sure about removing the seat belts, but the backrest was pretty easy. Just two bolts on either side of the hinges. I'm in North Irvine.

    best I got of missing rear. really cleans it up. the seat belts are easy to take out you just pull back the plastic covering and start unscrewing.

    How difficult was the aftermarket seat install? Looks really good. Is that how the rear should look with the seats removed or did you add carpet and boxes?
