Removing the back seat from a Dodge Neon will give you more room for storage or for something like speaker boxes or to change the color of the car’s interior. The seats are mainly fastened with clips and should only take a few minutes to remove.
Remove the lower cushion
If the Neon has four doors, open the tailgate and begin removing the seats. You’ll want to slide the passenger seat all the way forward and tilt the seat up if you’re working on a two-door Dodge Neon. The clip-on lower part of the seat can be easily lifted. Tilt the seat sideways to remove it from the car.
Remove the backrest
The backrest portion of the rear seat is secured by two bolts on the bottom of the seat. You will need a torque wrench to loosen these two bolts. Slide the receiving ends of the seat belts out of the way, as the bolts also hold the seat belts in place. Once the bolts are removed, you will be able to lift the seat and separate it from the rear dash. The seat has clips on top that allow it to rest in place on the rear dash. Once you push up on the rear seat, this will release it. Slide the seat out of the car on the passenger side.
