Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of Thanks.

In this video, we're going to show you how to remove the front seats. We'll remove the passenger side, and the driver side is the exact same. The only tools you'll need is a Phillips screwdriver and a 13mm wrench or a socket with a ratchet. This procedure is generally the same for any '82 to '92 Camaro as well as the Firebirds. This vehicle has no power accessories. You would need to disconnect your power seat, etc., if you have those accessories.

Start with your seat back, and you can see there's two covers here. They have Phillips screws holding them. The first one comes out. I do have to put a lot of force on that screwdriver to keep it down into the screw head to make sure it keeps turning. The second one, the screw was in really poor shape, so I ended up drilling it out.

Because they look a little crusty, we'll soak 'em up. I will move the seat forward and then the same procedure here. Got a screw there and a screw here. Okay, fast-forward through this part. Again, these screws were a little difficult, and I had to really give it a lot of force on the end of the screwdriver to keep the screwdriver into the screw head, but they eventually came out. Then, just a reminder, as you're taking these things apart make sure you have a nice labeled plastic bag and put everything into it for safe keeping.

As you can see down in here there is a bolt, another bolt, and a penny. I sprayed the rears with some penetrating oil as well. Move that back. Using a 13mm socket with a ratchet after those have soaked with the penetrating oil, they come off pretty easily. Again, there are 13mm nuts holding the back and do the same thing. Those come out pretty easy since I soaked them with penetrating oil.

Okay, now you want to lift your seat up. If you've got a power seat or anything, what you can do is carefully tilt it back and unhook any of the power accessories. This does not have a power seat, go ahead and lift the seat right out. I remember that screw that held the trim plate down, that was so rusty we couldn't get it out. Now we're just going to use our vice grips, twist it from the back side and get it moving on its way out, and then latch onto it from the front side, and pull it out.
