DerbyCityGinger I've attempted to take rear seats out of 2 different hatchbacks and have broken several Craftsman Torx sockets trying to remove the seat belts. The seats themselves come out simple enough but I break the bits without a single turn every time I move on to the seatbelts. How do you unbolt them?

Barbie5 Thank you for your post. I have a 2001 Focus Wagon. The rear seat was stuck in the sitting position to accommodate human passengers, and when I tried to lift the seat (bench) it would not budge. I hunted for hours trying to find pictures or diagrams before I started taking things apart with no luck. I decided that if all else failed I would buy a star bit and just hope I could loosen the bolts holding the hinges to the body.

Gratefully my son was able to push the bench backward and freed the seat bottom where it was caught on some hook-looking things. So now the seat is up so I can fold the seat backs down and put my homemade cardboard liners over the carpeted cargo space to protect the carpet from being damaged.

Thanks to your photos and explanations I know what size of torx bits to buy, and I know I was on the right track. If I can figure out how to post some photos of the underside of the bench and the spot where the bench rests on the body, I will do that.

I bought this 2001 Focus Wagon brand new in May of 2001. Ford quit making the Focus Wagon, so I won't be able to replace it now. It's not that easy to find a car small enough that I can drive and big enough to carry stuff.

jonnmandy I'm going to do this when I get a chance just need to put something down though to make it look cleaner. Like it was suppose to be like that.

jenntek My rear squeaks sometimes too... I typically don't ever mention when it happes... Very nice write up. Sometimes I wish I didn't have back seats... Then, the excuse would be "sorry, its a two-seater."

pistolgripbmx Good write up. It seems like a lot of people get confused when it comes to removing the back sections. This should help.
