Thanks for the write up. Due to the amount of time I spend living out of my car on race weekends, this mod will be a godsend.

^^^^I'm glad somebody actually got to try this mod. And it's nice to know it works on a 2000 Focus. That leads me to suspect it will work on all the different years. But you never know. If your seats look similar to the pictures, you'll probably be ok.

Actually......if I go to FF-2009 I'll probably be sleeping in the car someplace, using this mod. Might save me a two day's motel bill.

Did it!

Before




After!




Might not seem like a big deal, but wow, what a difference! Thanks for the mod idea bluefront! Highly recommenced this mod too. You either like it or don't and you can just put a pin back in if you don't like it.

Hmm I poked around at my seat there and didn't quite figure out how the panel comes off yet.. Will try again when it's not sunset

My seats look different than those though.. at least the plastic parts are definitely different

^^^^^With an '09 you're sort of on your own here. If it's like an '06, you remove the handle, then pull the back edge toward the rear of the car, releasing two plastic clips. Then the rear section of the panel can be moved toward the door slightly, and then pushed forward, which releases the front catch.

Sounds harder than it is......the whole thing comes out in a flash. There are no screws whatever, other than one on the handle.
