    Default Removing back seat bottom from 2005 Camry

    I can't seem to get the back seat bottom removed from my 2005 Camry. It was
    easy to pull it from the clips on my 2000. Is there something different with
    the 2005?

    Pull straight up, not towards the front of the car. It is easier if you
    pull up one side (RH or LH) at a time. Just remember, as hard as it is to
    pull up, it will be harder to line up and put back. ;-)

    I find it near impossible. Would you suggest a screwdriver?

    I would not recommend using a screwdriver because it will probably end up
    tearing the upholstery.

    Here is a link to Camry repair manuals. Go the Generation 5 link, go to
    section 72 (Seats), then go to Page 72-38. The seat bottoms are secured the
    same way for TMC (Toyota Motor Corp. in Japan) and TMMK (Toyota Motor
    Manufacturing Kentucky) made Camrys.

    This will give you an idea of where the spring clips are located and how to
    lift them up.

    Pick up one corner, slide your hand in (as much as you can) and PULL!!!

    I don't know what changed from 1995 until now. My '95 Tercel had the
    'tabs' like the cars in the 80's, you'd press them and lift. But now (and
    I didn't look, or I've forgotten...) they do it different. The rear seat
    in my Scion was a BIOTCH!!! I stuck my hand in (both hands, actually) and
    pulled straight up, and it came out. BTW, it HURTS!!! But, once you get
    one side done, the other is easy.

    It's not as hard to line up as Ray alludes, but it ain't easy! If you've
    done it with older models, it's the same. Get it lined up and PUSH and it
    will pop back in.

    I used a secret weapon, my wife. Another couple of hands at a different
    angle, and it snapped free. Thank you for your response!
