Two black wires unconnected under back seat - ???

I was poking around the back seat tonight and found two unconnected black wires! It looked like they were attached together, but just disconnected. In a lapse of judgement, i connected them... No no avail...

Any ideas on what they could be from?

How to get the bottom back seat out?

Thanks for any input....

Speaker wires for the rear deck speakers?

Re: Two black wires unconnected under back seat - ???

My '69 has a factory rear speaker on the passenger side, the wire for the speaker is a darker blue color and is routed along the passenger side and up to the rear deck, hidden by the side panel. It does not run under the seat. There is only one wire. Maybe your car had after-market speakers installed?

That's my guess, too.

Re: Two black wires unconnected under back seat - ???

To get the bottom back seat out, there are two "U" shaped clips on at the front, near the ends. You will need to apply a decent amount of pushing backwards against the seat cushion while lifting up. This will release the catch that holds the seat in place. It is a whole lot easier to do if you first take out the front seats, then you have plenty of room to move around.
Hope that helps.

Re: Two black wires unconnected under back seat - ???

I prefer doing with front seats in
By adjusting the front seat postion just right...with elbow against front seat one can pressure/lever the very bottom part of the rear seat with the palm of the hand...a couple of well placed/timed jerks between the 2 will unclip the rear base.

My Spelling is not incorrect...it is creative

Re: Two black wires unconnected under back seat - ???

I just got back from the glass shop and they had the back seats out. The bottom back seat had a little toggle switch screwed into the bottom of the seat. It must have been a speaker switch or a ignition kill switch. It wasn't hooked up, just a remnent of the past.

I sought after the elvusive chassis broadcast sheet, but to no avail.
