|ISUZU-Rear Seat Removal on '92-'01 Troopers|
|This procedure probably applies to 1992-current Troopers. I think the rear seat is the same during that entire period. I know that the seat in my 1996 Trooper looked exactly the same (except for different seat fabric) as the one in my 98 Trooper. The rear seat in the 1999 and 2000 Troopers I've looked at seems the same as well.|
|How to remove rear seats 1998 Trooper:|
I just did this in about 15-20 minutes. It's
very simple. Next time I would expect to finish the job in about 10
Tools you will need: 12mm socket or 12mm box-end wrench
1. Flip seats down and tilt them forward
by releasing the black lever at the lower back side of each seat.
It feels good to know that this is a simple procedure and that I can remove the rear seat whenever necessary.
|Installing the rear seat:|
|This took about 10
minutes. With a little practice, installing the seats would be about a
5-minute job. Ditto for removing them. The only point I'd make is
you'll need to put firm pressure on the seats from above (I leaned on it
with my full body weight) in order for the holes on the seat to line up
with the holes on the truck floor. Also, it's probably easier to install
the lower plastic covers (the ones nearer the passengers' feet) first,
then do the ones up higher (toward the back of the seat, by the cargo
area) second. I did not measure the torque on the screws; I just
made them pretty tight.
1. Move one of the seats into position.
I did this with the seat folded down but not flipped forward. Click
down the lever in the back that is used to tip the seat forward
Leave the seat folded down, but not tipped forward. This helps to
keep the seat in position while the holes are lined up.
