    After removing screws simply lift out container

    Remove the aft 4 10x1.5mm hex bolts (silver) using 15mm ratchet.

    After bolt remove I replaced the covers
    ***Lower the seats
    Have your screwdriver handy and roll the seat section up

    I will be adding a proper deck with spacers I’ll add to this post
    Just remember to bag your bolts and wrap the seats for storage...
    For now a weathertech insert works fine

    Impressive. Nice work and great pics.

    Now you almost have as much room as a small minivan! ;-)

    interesting. Not sure I am ready to remove my rear seat but would like to flatten the rear cargo area. It seems to me that the under cover storage are is about useless for anything othern than stashing a couple of pizza boxes and that it slopes to the rear hatch. Can you just remove the storage area and be left with what looks like a finished flat floor???

    My biggest hassle was the slope aft, not to mention the height. Was surprised how easy seat section came out. Worth taking out for day to day driving and installing in the rare occasion you need it. Just ordered the plywood to make a deck. I’ll post dimensions, bolt locations, spacer heights and such.
