Forum rules


When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year and model in the thread title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Car Year - Car Model: Brief description of issue. EXAMPLE- 1999 9-3. Problems starting when hot.

Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.


Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

beardydave,

Interesting to see that your computer defaults 9000 Parts to 9000farts. I always have to add the space to prevent this. I have wondered if this is a 'known' idiosyncrasy the the Guys knew about when deciding on their handle !

good tip is if the seats coming out are electric have them in the storage position when you remove them as once removed how do you adjust them ask me how i know
easier to remove out the door if they are flatter but easier to store if there upright

ive found rears out first then front seats out the back hatch will be less likely to damage the doors in some way and you have loads of room for refitting the fronts easily

warm your back up first with a good few twists and squats lift with your knees
i was amazed at the weight of a fully lecy memory seat first time i lifted one up out of a 9000 doorway hence the out the back hatch

Greetings!

Going back to finish this - so far fronts are in. The bases for the rear seats are also in.

But - I cannot fathom how to the back rests of the rear seats?

Any pointers - or any photos would be gratefully received.

:corn:

Pull the base forward and the nuts for the hinges are near the hinges which are at the corners of the two parts of the backrest. Might be hidden under carpet or sound deadening.

Once undone release the catches as though you are going to fold the seats down.

Cheers!

Right - bases in

What about the backs?

Really don't get these at all.

Tips?
