Fallen beneath the rear seats.


Asked by Feb 17, 2014 at 04:36 PM about the 2008 Pontiac Vibe Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Something fell beneath the back seat of my 2008 Pontiac Vibe. It happened when I was
raising the rear seats from the flat position to the upright position; some cards that were
sitting near that hinge fell underneath the seat. Does anyone know how easy/safe it
would be to partially remove the rear seats so I can get at what's underneath? Or is this
something that should only be handled by a dealer?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!

Vibes rear seats are very simple to remove. Before removing seats, the first generation vibes had a thin hatch Iid the rear cargo area between the lid you lift to access spare tire anAnd the backs of rear seats. I dont know about your geneneration vibe but if it does have you, you may be able to get what fell without taking out seats. if not, there should be 2 or 4 bolts under the bottom cushion of rear seat bench, remove those bolts. next, fold down rear seats completely and remove the headrests (optional-will make them easier to move around). use screw driver or something topry the plastic floor between spare tiire compartment cover and seat backs now folded down. once the plastic floor panels off you should see a couple more bolts in there to remove the backs of seats. They should somewhat larger bolts, maybe 13mm thru 16mm in size. if you can take photos and send me them I can tell you what exactly to do, my vibe was totalled long ago but ive taken all the seats out a dozen times and it shouldnt take more then 15 to 20 minutes. my email is dyingstar@email.com .
