Removing the rear seat in a Honda CRV is a fairly simple process. There are a few reasons why this task may be necessary. You may be replacing the seat with an aftermarket option, or you may simply need to get the seat out of your way while you work on other repairs and maintenance. Although the removal process may only take a few minutes, the rear seat comes out as a complete unit. This means that handling the seat may require an additional pair of hands, due to its cumbersome nature and weight.
