this weight reduction makes a big difference on the car, its night and day difference without the back seats

Do the Torx bolts remove from underneath the car?

No, you just have to remove all the luggage-area covers, etc. to get to the back bolts and remove the seat cushion to get to the fronts.

Hi Idjiit, is it possible to swap a regular folding rear bench seat with a 60/40 split,reclining sliding rear seat? The reason I ask is would have to get the power package to get the split rear seat and we all know how hard that is to get right now. Thanks MrMondayNite

I can't imagine why it wouldn't be possible, but I don't know for sure.

Well I just did this today. I left the spare tire in the car because I can't risk missing class/work. After weighing what I took out, I believe i lost about 70lbs. Not really that much of a difference, but i NEVER had people or never will have people riding in my back seat. So when I decide to "race" people, i'll just make sure to take out my spare for the activity.

I left the board that covers the spare tire. I am going to put another small board going across and on top of the existing board (that covers the spare) to catch anything that would slide forward into the empty space where the seat was. I'm also going to put some velcro on the outside of the board so I can have the flaps stick to the board so you can't see what's in that "trunk" area if you look in through the windows..







This is where the board will be going. I'l going to put carpet on it so it'll blend in nicely.

Then put some velcro on the outside of the top so the flaps can stick on it and be nice a tight. not droopy



I put the rear floor mats over where there would be exposed metal from the car. I will eventually cover it with carpet once i put the board across. I'll post pics when that is all done.

rear 60/40 seats removed = 90.5 pounds

with rear seatbelts and all bolts = ~100 pounds

I am thinking of undertaking this project myself for the weight loss. To improve mileage and response time.

I just did this myself... Took 20 mins max. and the difference was felt right away. The only thing I don't like too much is that there's increased noise levels in the back now... Time for some sound deadening, perhaps?

Also moved the stuff to its own thread here: http://www.yarisworld.com/forums/showthread.php?t=22477

a DIY on taking out the back seat and no one mentions the size of the TORX bolts? that would really be helpful.

They are E-10

In a pinch an 8mm socket will work as well. When I pull Crashy's rear seat I didn't have a set of external torx, so I went the 8mm route.

thanks CTScott. i went ahead and just bought a set. would have rather spent $5 on a single socket than $40 on a whole set i'll probably never use again but oh well. it was one of those "i'm on a mission from god or allah or some other higher power" sort of things. so i couldn't wait for an answer. lol.

after removal did anyone else notice you can hear your gasoline sloshing around. lol. i don't wanna hear that.
