I regularly take my back seats out for a bit of extra space on European fishing trips.

The rears have 2 bolts that secure the seat squab, these are under a cover which just pop off and then it just unclips. The uprights have 15mm and 17mm nuts to secure them. To get the rear nuts on the fixings you have to access these from under the boot carpet. You can then unplug the seat belt warning plugs (These are coloured individually so you can put them back right).

Not taken the front seats out but they look like they are secured by 4 bolts that require a torx (star) screwdriver. I guess if you have heated or electric seats there will be a few connectors to undo.

To be honest with a bit of methodical work and someone to help lift the seats in and out its not a difficult job.

Some low life in Carlisle had my drivers seat of my 33 Ti out in less than about 10 minutes in the 90s! The B******d

Would you be able to link me to the threads you found with regards to swapping the seats out for leather.
I'm afraid the threads I looked at that I quoted about were for the mirror covers and changing them, not the seats. I had the seats changed by my specialist as it's not something I would do myself, so I'm afraid I can't be of much help in terms of seat fitting sorry. It was like for like seats which makes things simpler and possible, if one set of seats are say electric and the others aren't then a seat swap would be more difficult.

Just dropped my G in to the garage to get the offside rear coil spring replaced. I heard clunking in the rear of the car, and was shocked to see the spring had snapped into two, with the lower weight bearing section now sitting on the chassis rail a few cm from the brake pipe...

Hi, are you swapping your seats? I purchased Jean’s seats and fitted them myself, happy to add a ‘how to’ if you wish?

Put a new antenna base on the Giulietta 2012, now i have nine sattelites, a lot better than zero, and with the updated maps 2016/2017 from the gpspower forum it works like a charm,
many thanks to CyberPoison who posted the maps.

A week ago we were choking on bushfire smoke. Climate is fine people, nothing to see here...

I feel for you. Six weeks after buying a new Xsara I got caught in heavy hail in Austria. The damage was nowhere near as bad as yours and I managed to live with the multitude of small dents but knew they were there and it never felt the same again.
With that many panels damaged will the insurers repair or write off?

It’s the roof that kills them... Plus there would be a few thousand cars killed today so the insurers tend to write them off more readily, no way to fix them all.

A few hundred cars in the Meganes car park alone all looked like mine.

This shows how hard it got smashed - the a pillar is super strong;
