    If anyone is selling their 150 rear seats due to removing or installing drawers etc, I would love to buy them as I'm looking to add a third row into a new 5 seat GX. I'm in SA and happy to organise post if elsewhere

      Just removed my seats using this explanation. Perfectly clear, took my time and took some photos myself as I went. Still only took just on one hour from throttle to bottle.

          Hi Everyone,
          I am also wanting to buy a set of third row seats for my GX, I am from Brisbane and willing to pay shipping for the right seats.
          I am also willing to swap the GX false floor for cheap seats
          Cheers

            Great instructions, though the images were not working, so i took some - see below.

            My tip is to put the bolts you remove back into the threaded section they came from, so they don't get lost.

            The whole job took me about 30mins once i worked out how to take it apart, Next time it would be a 15min job

            Tools Needed
            • 2x Flat Blade screwdriver
            • 10mm Socket
            • 14mm Socket
            Step 1.
            Using a 10mm Socket remove the 2 rear tie downs​​​​​​





            Step 2.
            Lift the flap off the rear seats and put your hand underneath, Lift up to unclip, this is just clipped in.

            (picture shows already unclipped)


            Step 3.
            Remove the rubber seal around the bottom of the door.
            With a 10mm socket remove the 3 bolts holding the rear step trip to the false floor support



            [edit]Remove the rear step trim. To do this i found it easier to use two screwdrivers and leaver the clip on either side until it popped out. Once you remove the first one the rest remove much easier, be careful not to scratch the paint

            [Steve: i used a single screwdriver as a lever as shown - indert and lift up]


            Step 4.
            Unclip the remaining trims on the left and right side
            [Steve: i used screwdriver lever technique used above next to the white clip to unclip]



            You will be left with just the seats and the false floor support



            Step 5.
            With a 10mm socket remove the remaining bolts on the false floor support




            Then remove the Left and right support with a 10mm socket




            Step 6.
            Unbolt the 4 bolts on each seat (8 in total)
            One on teach side of the rear
            [Steve: the seat needs to be forward to see the outside bolt.]



            Four at the front - under covers



            First Seat removed



            Both seats removed




            Very easy and nothing to stress about, remember if you put the seats back in you will need to tighten them to the appropriate torque and apply locktight.
