Some cars come equipped with seats that fold down, while others have permanent seats that do not move. Some people choose to remove their car seats to have more storage space or to replace or repair the seat. Removing the back seat from your 2006 Nissan Sentra will allow you to do those things. Just make sure no one is riding in the rear seat area without the seat in its proper place and with the seat belt fastened.
60/40 Hinged Seat Removal
Open the trunk of your 2006 Nissan Sentra. Pull the rear seat release knob located on the left side of the trunk. Push the seat forward slowly so that it folds down. If you push it forward too fast, the middle seat belt may lock.
Get in the back seat of the Sentra. Look where the seat meets the mat at the bottom of the seat and look for the two tabs on either side. Pull the tabs to release the lower sections of the rear seat.
Grab the bottom of the seat and lift it up. This should release the seat from its hooks so that you can remove the seat.
Removing the fixed seat
Get in the back seat of the Sentra. Locate the bolt that holds the center seat belt in place between the seats. Remove this bolt with a socket wrench and set aside.
Remove the mounting bolts that run along the outer perimeter and down the middle of the rear seat. There will be one on each side and two in the middle. Set the screws aside.
Look where the seat meets the mat at the bottom of the seat and look for the two tabs on either side. Pull the tabs to release the lower sections of the rear seat.
Grasp the bottom of the seat and lift it up to release the seat from its hooks and the seat can be removed.
