Hi, I’m Mike from 1A Auto. We’ve been selling auto parts for over 30 years!

We're going to start by pulling these little plastic clips up. We're going to pull them down and then pull them up towards you like that. Down and up. Now we're going to pull up underneath here. Grab your hands under there and pull up quick, like that. Then in the back of the seat, you're going to push it back and lift. Over here, push it back and lift. I'm going to pull the seat out. Push the seatbelt buckles down. It's very tricky with the fabric from the seat. If you can get the fabric out of the way, it makes it easier. You can reach underneath and pull the fabric out of the way. You can pull the seat up. The seatbelt buckles were getting caught right in this area, so that makes it difficult to remove.

Install our backseat. We're going to feed the seatbelt buckles through, through the holes. Get it through the fabric. It is slightly difficult. It helps to reach underneath and pull the fabric through. Get the seat lined up. You're going to lock in the back part of the seat. Push it, push down, and pull forward. You want to check the front to make the front lined up there. Push it down. Same over here. Push that down. We're going to reinsert these clips. You're going to push up underneath the seat. Get the slot to line up, and then lock it into place like that. The last one. It's a little bit tricky. If you angle it a little bit, it makes it a little bit easier to get it over. Lock it in.
