1970 Custom Coupe Rear Seat Removal

New to forum and a newly minted 1970 Custom Coupe owner. I'm hoping someone can confirm how to remove the rear seat. I read somewhere while searching I should just have to reach in between the back of the bottom of the seat and the back rest, pull up on it and lever it up. That will allow me to release from the two clips up front.

But, damn is it tight in there. Hard to get my hands between the seat portions at all. Before I spend and hour yanking on it and one have any tips for tricks to help me out?

Hi Don,

Congratulations with you're car and welcome.
To remove the back seat you have to push the seat cushion towards the back of the car and then pull upwards to unlock it.
Easiest is to do one side at a time.

Right, what Dennis said.

Also sometimes they are a little stubborn. Try to also push down slightly while pushing back with some good effort to release it.
