Default Removing Seats for Cleaning

Hello everyone. New here. Just wondering if there is a way to easily remove and reinstall the seats so I can give my car a very deep clean. I own a 2005 PT Convertible Turbo and know almost nothing about cars Thanks

I don't know of "anyone" that felt that they had to remove their seats to do even the most thorough cleaning. You can easily reach under the seats in the front or around the seats in the rear just using the normal vacuuming methods. Even spraying the carpets with Wool-ite, etc. doesn't require removing the seats. You don't have to be mechanically inclined to clean the interior of a car.

I don't have a vert so I have no idea how to remove the rear seats. The front seats have four bolts per seat to remove. I believe they are 15mm. If you have powere or heated seats there will also be plugs to undo. Once the seats are out you can take it a step further and remove the plastic pieces to clean them. As well as, the area of the seat that is behind the plastic.

I remove my seats at least once a year to give the car a thorough cleaning. You will be surprised just how much stuff is hiding in places you can't get to. Good luck.

Hey

I see from your signature you have NA and an Auto transaxle. Also notice your using Amsoil ATF

How long have you used it? How do you like, any issues, shift quality good and how did you install, just pan drop and refill with 4 qts or did you also do a cooler line flush to get all 8.6 qts in.

Me too, I remove the front seats once per year. I do a thorough vacuum and then deep shampoo. Let it dry and then scotch guard everything.
