DIY: remove the front seats

Since I was shut in from the snow, and couldn't go anywhere I decided the remove the front seats and clean up underneath the seats and on the sides. Not much of a DIY, compared to the glorious ones that are here, but maybe it helps somebody.

-------------------------------------------------------

1. Remove the negative terminal of your battery. This is very very important.























To install the seats, do the reverse steps. Don't forget to reconnect your sensor under the seat, before you connect the negative terminal of the battery.

Tip: I took the seats out of the car, from the back door, twisting them about the shape of the seats.

Good job! There is ALWAYS something to clean there especially between the console and the seat and seat and door. Those are electrical heated seats, right?

Great write up! Very Nicely done. This is a pretty easy project, I like to call these "figure it out'ers", so in most cases a DIY is probably not necessary. But, I would like to encourage you to write one for any e46 project or maintenance you do. Like I said before it's a great write up!!!

No. Regular seats, no heat.
