Re: 67 standard Camaro rear seat removal.

Some are easier than others....for the tricky ones I use the butt end of regular hammer with a rubber handle. That way I get a grip on the springy rod that's crosswise next to the catch. Push on the hammer and then the seat up and it'll come off. If you can't see where you're going use a flashlight at the same time pulling up on the seat enough to get some gap in order to see with the light.

Thumbs up Re: 67 standard Camaro rear seat removal.

As stated above, press down on front edge of rear seat cushion (in the area about center-line of the front seat back ahead) and shove towards the back of car. The hook system on lower cushion should release and allow you to lift front edge of seat up and out once you have both (2) latches released.
Sometimes it helps to put your knee on front edge of seat to help press down and release latch.

Once lower cushion is out you will see fasteners for bottom of rear seat upper cushion section - remove those and lift the rear cushion up to release from it's top mount latches.

Re: 67 standard Camaro rear seat removal.

It's a pain in the *** (at least mine was). It helps to see how the mechanism works so get a flashlight, put your head on the passenger seat floor and look up at the bottom of the seat. You'll see how the wire on the seat catches the mechanism on the floor.

Edit: I remembered the last time I took the seat out it was such a pain that I didn't put it all the way back. I just took a few pics that may help. The first pic shows the catch mechanism on the floor from the side. To the right is the front of the car.

Re: 67 standard Camaro rear seat removal.

In this pic you see the metal bar on the seat that slips into the catch mechanism on the floor. You have to push this bar back and up, then pull it forward (on the left and right passenger side). I used a small pry bar to push it and a lot of curse words to encourage it along.

I used a rubber butted end of a claw hammer. The rubber on the butt end keeps it from slipping off the that crosswise bar that we're trying to push back.

For some reason some seats are super-tight and others can come off with a simple push of the hand.....

Re: 67 standard Camaro rear seat removal.

I usually slide and fold both front seats forward, wedge myself between the front seat back and the rear bench, use my knees to push the bench back while pulling the front lip up. She'll pop when you get her released.

PITA and why I don't pull them often.

Re: 67 standard Camaro rear seat removal.

This is a side view of the latch under the seat.... hence the push back, lift up, and pull out motion.

I agree with the get our butt in there and push...

Re: 67 standard Camaro rear seat removal.

Yeah, push it with your knees and pop it up and out with your hands. Do not mess around with it, apply some pressure and pop it out.

Wink Re: 67 standard Camaro rear seat removal.

I wanted to thank everyone that posted on how to take the rear seat out of my 67 Camaro. It's February 20, so this little project was a little tougher than it should have been. Like Gordr said mine seemed to be a little tighter than normal, It was tough but pushing down and pulling up simultaneously is the proper method. Thanks everyone for your help.

Luwi67 OMG did I find stuff, we need to take out once in awhile just to clean the mice stuff out. Smile

Before you put it back throw a couple 'Dryer Sheets' under there - it will keep the mice out
Same for a few tucked under dash, front seats and even a few in the heater/defrost outlets* - they will keep the mice from building nests or chewing their way through your interior
(* = just make sure they are in an area where they won't blow up into, and plug, the duct outlets ...)

ps: if the rear seat is already in just tuck a couple under with a 'paint-stick' as a pusher ...

Re: 67 standard Camaro rear seat removal.

This thread really helped me so I figured I'd add to it. My rear seat bottom was really in there tight. After a few attempts to push back and up simultaneously by hand, I decided to get some better leverage....



All I had to do was push on the top of the 1x4 while pulling the seat up. This setup worked like a charm and the seat was out in seconds. I hope this helps someone.
