2020 front seat removal

Recommended Posts

Anyone know of a write up for front seat removal for a 2020? I saw one here for a 2016, would be the same?

I don't know for sure but I think it would be pretty much the same.

Hi N.I. Only thoughts, not facts here: I do not know definitively. However, like leftoverture, I would think the nuts/bolts are probably the same, although there may be some differences with the wiring/connectors etc.

 

Good luck.

Any seat removal is basically the same, 4 bolts and a wire harness or two.  It helps to raise the seat up for easier access to the bolts.  Also pulll any associated airbag fuses and remove battery connections, wait a bit before starting to remove any possible airbag deployments.

Thanks, this is about what I figured.  Just so I can keep all of my Sync/XM channel settings, can I just remove the positive cable from the battery?

Or is it the negative cable?

Negative first always.   Hopefully your setting will still be there, but they may get lost.  I had my battery replaced earlier in the year by the dealer (Warranty), and I don't believe that I lost any presets, not sure on that though.

Right, the dealers and a lot of mechanics have a device that provides power to the accessories via a power port inside the car after discoing the battery completely.  I thought that if I disconnect the negative only and leave the positive connected it'll disable the airbags but the accessories will still retain their settings.  I better look this up first to make sure.

I am curious, why are you removing your seat on such a new car?

I bought some expensive seat covers I can't now return, and because of how the seat is built with that weird flap under the seat that I can't just unhook because of the plugs I might as well take them out to install the covers.

Do you have cooled seats?  If so, are the seat covers you're planning to use made of solid material which could block airflow?
