    How do you remove the extendable thigh rest in a coupe/sxi/sri?

    As above, need to know how to separate this from the seat so it can be trimmed. Thanks.

    I'm sure there are two clevis pins on the two support arms that need to be removed to get the cushion ouf - have a look under the seat.

    I took mine off ages ago and it's a two min job

    Sorry for the vagueness, but it's ages since I took them off. I just remember it being easy to do
