Default Help removing back seat!!

Is there any (easy) way to remove the back seat that is located over the gas tank in my 2006 Maxum 1800 MX? I can reach up under there from behind and feel two screw heads but its way too close to the gas tank to get in there and turn 'em. I'm sure there is an easy way that people use when they replace the seats or upolstery ...could somebody fill me in please!!

Hmm - My gas tank is located behind the rear seat back. It removes by pulling straight up, un hooking and out. The seat bottoms are just velcro'ed onto a plastic bench as I recall.

I'm having the same question. Did you ever figure it out? I can't imagine you have to pull the gas tank to pull the rear seat. Any tips? And, while we're at it, any tips on removing the bench seat on the port side?

Does anyone know how to do this? There appears to be four screws holding in the seat and it looks like you have to get the fuel tank out to access them?????

Help!

I've got the same boat, and the same curiosity! Maybe ask an upholstery shop how they would get it out to have it redone? That's what'll happen to me after another season or 2.....

Hi Guys,
I noticed this thread as I have the same issue, it seems the port side seat cushion (not the back rest) is fixed in by 4 stainless screws which are impossible to get at with the fuel tank in place as there is only an inch or so clearance. to remove the fuel tank the engine has to come out, this seems crazy but unfortunately is the case.
I guess the only way is to carefully prize the seat upwards and hope the screws are only self tapping, There is a very likely risk of damaging the seat base doing this but I fail to see any other way unless someone has figured out a way to do it or has done it as above, if so how long are these screws and did it do a lot of damage?
Regards
Gary

Unfortunately not, the back rest cushion does as you say lift up and off but the base is fixed with 4 screws directly above the fuel tank.
