Trying to remove my front passenger seat to make it easy mount an ipod adapter underneath it. Rear nuts came off fine, but the front nuts are being a pita. Didn't take any force to start them moving, but once they loosened up a little the bolts (threads) started free spinning with the nuts. It's doing this on both of the passenger seat bolts. Looked under the car to see if i needed to hold the bolt head, but all I see is smooth metal. Anyone pulled the seats out of a newer Cobra? Is there a trick to doing this?

Solved: The front is actually held down by a 'bolt', and not a nut as it appears from the outside. On the left is the bolt that secures the rear of the seat. On the right is the 'bolt' that secures the front.

They do screwy stuff with fasteners... to make the assembly line... "drop in and zip it"... go smoother :rolleyes:

It does make it tough to do "field fixes" untill you know what they have put in there...

Thanks for the heads up :thumbsup:
