    Two bolts at rear of front seat runners, take your time with these as they have lots of threadlock on them.
    Once seats are unbolted make sure you have the car keys in your pocket as the ignition has to stay off till the seats go back in.
    Unplug the electrical connections under the seats & lift out seats.
    DO NOT turn on the ignition with the seats unplugged or you will trip the airbag light.
    Remove the plastic sill trims, the carpets can be folded back enough to give you access to lay the Dynamat.

    Seat is held by two metal clips at the front & two bolts at the back.
    Once you remove the bolts, slide it back & tilt it up to get access to the electrical connector plug, then lift out of the car.

    removing front seats/carpet

    My plan is to remove the back seats and continue the trim from the rear quarter panels around the back inside of the car to cover that huge hole. Then smooth the rear floor and re-carpet the whole interior of the car.

    I was thinking of flocking instead of carpet but think carpet would look better.

    Also tempted to add some Bride material in places as I am getting a Bride seat but it is early days yet..
