    I'm sure the front and rear of the carpet are seperate so the whole back seats will need removing, the rear of the center console and the front seats will need unbolting just so you can lift them up at the rear so slide the carpet out

    I assume we are on about a MK4 btw?

    You don't need the whole back seat out, just the seat base.
