Thanks for the write up. Got it done after hassleing with the torx bolts. My question now is for those who have removed the seats. Any tips for storing the bench in good condition? What did you guys do? Thanks.

How much additional vertical clearance in the storage area?

I'm considering removing my 60/40 rear seats in my '10 LB to create more space for hauling. First item on my list: a 30" range. Best way to fit it in completely would be to have the 30" dimension of the range (which is the width of the range when it is oriented normally in a kitchen) oriented vertically in the car. In other words, the range would be on its side.

How much additional vertical clearance do you get from removing the rear seats in a LB?

I never thought i would take out the back seat. However i had a bag of salt/calcium chloride mix break open and it all over the place under the seats, spare tire, under the side molding. Freakin mess! Gota take the seat out to get it all cleaned out.

Cargo Tray? Is this something pre-made for a yaris HB with the rear seat removed?

Actually it was made as a Toyota accessory to use with the seat in. When I removed my seat which the back of secures the tray in place (to keep it from sliding forward), I fabricated some brackets and plastic to use the seat bolt holes to keep it secured now. Works like a champ. Had to, as I use this vehicle on occasion to fill my fuel containers and didn't want any spills. Easy to clean also.

First off, thanks for the DIY. Was very helpful.

So i removed my 60/40 sliding/reclining back seats. Was pretty simple after i realized that this DIY is based on a bench seat and not the 60/40 split. Only difference was that there is no removing the seat cushion from the frame, it all stays connected. I also removed the "middle" seat belt that hangs from the overhead. you know, that one that's RIGHT in the middle of the rear view mirror! The last pic is with the "spare tire cover" laid back in.

p.s. Torx bolts are a PITA when you stripe them...

looks great, tell me about those torx bolts. I stripped one and had to go everywhere to find someone who could get it out. Finally found a guy at a body shop who was able to do it in a few minutes.

I used an 8mm socket wrench that took all but one bolt out. I had to hammer down a 7mm to break the seal.

Hello,

I am looking to remove the rear backrest, not the bottom part. I do a lot of camping and need just a tad bit more space...could someone help with this? The tutorial doesn't really cover that part (unless I've missed it)! Thanks!

What back seat setup do you have? The bench or the reclining 60/40 split?

I'm assuming you have the solid bench.

- You need to remove the two torx bolts from the rear mounting points accessible through the hatch

- You then need to pop off the bottom cushion to access two more torx bolts hidden beneath it. Since at this point there are only two more hex bolts left in the entire assembly, you might as well take everything out.

Socket for the torx is an E10 torx. Do not attempt to use an 8mm. Two hex bolts are 14mm

To take it further, from what I understand of your question. Removal of the seat be it solid or 60/40 will leave a void. There is no platform available for purchase to fill it. You can make one as several on the forums have.
