Sportwagon rear seat catch broken

So,

due to combination of not being careful when carrying a load with the seats down and bad luck the catch mechanism of the right rear seat is now broken and the seat will not lock in the up position.



Unfortunately, someone @Alfa thought it would be a good idea to have supplementary locks, in the bottom hinges (linked with steel cables) as well so just undoing the torx bolts is not enough to remove it. It looks like a seat out job to remove all the seat cushion etc etc etc ....

How difficult is separating the seat cushion from the frame?

Does anyone have either the catch mechanism or the right 2/3s rear seat for sale?

not seen the alfa seat catches but if its anything like the Pug seats, I had to sort the catch on my daughter's car not long ago. Once the seat is out, release the trim from the clips along the bottom edge and then gradually easy it up to the top so you can get to the mechanism and fixings and hopefully see what's failed. In her case a spring had dropped half out and I was able to dismantle and reassemble to get it all working again.
