Back Seat Removal

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow Yaris owners!

I'm trying to change my fuel pump and know it's under the backseat but I can't seem to get the backseats' cushion off. The service manual says the seat should "lift up" but i've tried even putting a metal pole for leverage and cannot get the cushion to pop off. Has anyone successfully removed their back seat cushions? Is there a lock or something?

It's a 2008 Yaris YR Hatch.

Of no help to you but I asked this ages ago and didn't receive any answers. All I could find by searching Youtube etc., was the same as you, is that it just needs a sharp tug upwards to release two fixings. I've tried this and applying some leverage with a pry bar, to no avail. I don't want to break anything by using excessive force. I've even inserted a small usb camera where the fixings are located but that didn't reveal anything constructive.

I have a manual, but not all pictures are loading + it's partially in Russian

Maybe you can piece it using the removal link the manuals  for installation and removal

Hi, there are two options, depending on Year.

a) Grip the fwd edge and sharp tug upwards should do it.

b) On the L/H seat there are two mounts, release the Plastic trim covers (3 hooks on each) and expose the mount (Torx) bolts. 2 on outer foot, 1 on inner...

Thanks to both. There are definitely no fixing bolts/screws so it must be the "sharp tug" method. As mentioned, I have looked with a small u.s.b. camera. However, tried the tug and the seat base will not release. It just bends even when gripped where the fixings can be seen. Careful prying at those points also doesn't release the fixings.

Not sure how relevant this is, but I had to remove the rear bench of my Avensis Mk3 Tourer. You have to use a lot of force, quick pull movement to lift the bench from the fixing points.

Here is my post to give you an idea - 

Hope this helps.

Thanks for that, Konrad. From what I could see using the camera, my seat base looks to be secured in exactly the same way. They are very useful pictures. I'm probably not pulling hard enough!

That copper coloured "frame" does look quite weak and easily bent though.

I'll try again.👍
