Just curious - which is the "pasenderside" ?? You're asking people to take the time to provide help - perhaps taking a bit of time to check the spelling and structure of your requests would be a considerate thing to do in exchange for that time and assistance.

Normally I'd agree with the comments about spelling and grammar, but in this case, it looks like the writer is typing phoenetically, which indicates a lack of training in written language... in that case, re-reading and/or proofreading wouldn't help...

Poster -- the bottom of the back seat comes out by pushing the front of the cushion towards the back of the car and unhooking 2 hooks, each right between where the legs of a passenger would be.

The top of the back seat requires you to remove the access panel in the trunk and unbolt the seatback. Not too difficult.

Good luck.

I don't see why we all need to have perfect spelling on these boards. I mean there are a lot of people visiting these boards, that are (believe it or not) in countries where english isn't the dominant language. As long as the reader can understand what the writer is trying to say, I think it's okay.

I have heard that you have to unbolt the seat-back and take that out first before you can take out the seat-bottom. I don't know much else about that though, because I have never taken the backseat out of a caddy before.

edit: listen to tremor12, I think he's right.

You're not helping your cause any by responding that way. Let's just all look to help each other out rather than nitpick or curse at each other. That doesn't acomplish anything.:(

I understand that English is not the first language for the majority of the people living on this orb as it rotates around the sun and it was not my intent to offend.
I moderate another board which is not in any way, shape or form, associated with this one, and have found that some younger members find it "cute" to type, with deliberation and intent, in a derivative of the English language (which appears to be of their own creation) which leaves the messages almost impossible to comprehend.
What I presumed to be a slovenly approach to communications may well have been the individuals best attempt - in which case you have my heartfelt apology. If that was not the case and the presentation of the message was either through a lack of care or a deliberate attempt at being "cute" then I will stand by my suggestion that, when asking of others time while resolving a problem, they deserve the respect of your time while phrasing and constructing the question.
We've all had the location of the keys on our keyboards appear to randomize as we type, and I make no claims to my spelling or presentation's perfection but I do make a concerted effort towards that end.

Well said :highfive: :2thumbs: :thumbsup:
We can at least make an attempt at communicating in a civil, intelligent manner. It may take a couple more minutes to compose a post.

I said I wouldn't nitpick anymore but sometimes I can't help myself!

There's a technique for removing the seat involving holding your tongue just right and pushing down on the front edge of the seat. It's hard to describe. I think it's in the owners manual. If you don't have a manual, you can download one from the sticky on this forum.

Come on Guys! OH PA-LEEZE! Teach English in the English class..this is a freakin' bulletin board for car guys for Christ's sakes! Just read the "IM" language and answer the question instead of running off the poor person trying to get some help here..GEESE already!

Now then.. as I remember from my younger days as a Cadillac mechanic, the rear seat does push in and lift up, but it is difficult to do. You have to get in the back seat floor board, facing the rear bottom cushion, then push the cushion in with your knees to shove the seat in under the seat back. Then raise the seat up and out. The bolts holding the seat back should be at the bottom on the right and left of the cushion. Undo those and lift the seat back up and off of its hooks to remove. It takes patience so work at it and you will get it.

Hope this helps!

Not to pick at nits but I agree with SteveTheFolkie - sometimes, what appears to be poor grammer and incomprehensible spelling is a deliberate attempt to "individualize" the language - and I for one have a hard time translating the gibberish.
I also understand the fact that some visitors did not learn English as their birth language - but the fact is, people who learn English as a second language tend to have BETTER spelling and grammar skills than native speakers, because they were taught better. So I have a hard time blaming gibberish on ESL factors.
I'll admit it, I'm a dick when it comes to spelling, it seems that too many people can't tell the difference between "there" and "their", or "threw" and "through"...I blame the educational system which has, for all intents and purposes, deemphasized correct grammer and spelling in deference to 'self-image'.
