Here are the items you'll need for this repair: 10-18mm sockets, ratchet, socket extensions, T50 Torx bit, Phillips head screwdriver, torque wrench, interior removal kit from 1AAuto.com

Remove the rear seat cushion. To do this, you'll grab right where you feel the bracket underneath and pop up firmly, and there's another one on the opposite side. Lift out and remove the lower seat cushion. Pull the tabs to lower the rear seats. Fold down the little flaps, and you'll find a 10mm bolt for the side seat cushion on each side. Remove that with a 10mm socket and ratchet. Once the bolt is removed, firmly grab the top of the seat cushion and pull out to release the clip. We'll repeat this process with the opposite side.

Remove the two Phillips head screws in the lower seat panel. Now you may need to fold this seat up in order to get to the lower screw. Pop the top of the panel out and then up and repeat this process with the lower panel on the opposite side. Use a T50 Torx to remove the seat belt bolt. Once the bolt is out, lower the seat back down. Pop the C pillar off. The last one in the back corner is the trickiest. You're going to actually want to reach back there and pop that manually so you don't break it. Pull your seat belt through the panel. Repeat these steps on the opposite side.

Using an 18 millimeter socket and ratchet, remove the nut securing the center seatbelt and buckle to the floor. Remove the buckle and the seatbelt. Using your 1A Auto interior trim removal tools pop the center clip out of the parcel shelf. Pull the parcel shelf out towards you. If you need to remove it fully, you can pop this panel out and lay it down. Pull your seatbelt and buckle through. Remove the shelf from the vehicle.

Send your seatbelt and buckle back through the opening in your parcel shelf. Snap that back into place. Lay the shelf up into position and reinstall the plastic clip in the center. Fold the seat back up. Reinstall the base of your center seatbelt as well as the 18-millimeter nut which we'll tighten down with our 18-millimeter socket and ratchet before torquing to 25 foot-pounds.

Reinstall the seat belt through the C pillar. Line up the C pillar and snap all of the tabs back into place. Be sure to pull the interior weatherstrip over the C pillar before snapping it entirely into place. Reinstall the T50 Torx bolt at the bottom of your seat belt. Tighten it down and then torque to 25 foot-pounds. You'll have to fold the seat down and install the bottom of the C pillar cover first, then snap the top in. Lay the seat back up and install your two Phillips head screws.

Reinstall the seat panel. Remember to snap the top into place and reinstall your 10mm screw on- And repeat this process on the other side. Reinstall the back seat. Make sure that you pull all of your seat belt buckles up to the appropriate slots in the seat. Slide the rear down into place. Line up the front and then push down to lock it in.
