    Thread: How do you take apart the seats?? (Mk1 Recaro's)

      alright.

      im stripping down my seats so i can recover them. ...alright, I wont be recovering the seats, but my girlfriend is . either way, ive got everything off except for the lower cushion's side bolster type thingys. i cant get these off without cutting them, because the section where the seat back attaches to the rest of the seat is blocking me. ill post a pic for some referance... my vocabualry isnt the best late at night.

      After you take those clips off (looks like you did) you can pull the seatback off the base. After that the cloth will just come off and you'll be left with just the separate back and bottom.

      yep, the clips are off.

      now how do you "pull" the seatback off the base? there just doesnt seem to be a way to do it.
