Rear Seat Removal - Need Advice

I am pulling the rear seats on my 82 SC and the screw on the outer side of each seat is stuck. Any advise from wise veterans is appreciated. I did WD40 but can't seem to break it free. I'm guessing I'm not the first to have this problem, and yes I did a search.

Thanks in advance

DG

I heated mine with a soldering iron and then used impact driver, still a bear to get them out though

A ratchet with a screwdriver socket works great.
Or if you have a screwdriver, that has a spot just below the handle, that you can use a wrench on.

Thanks, I did try the wrench/screwdriver but no joy. I will try heating it or I was going to go pick up a small needle nose vice grip and give that a try too. I will let you know how I make out.

Impact driver. Just preload it to take any slack out of the space on the screw with the bit and whack it with a hammer. If you don't have a set, they're inexpensive at your FLAPS or Harbor Freight or wherever, and worthwhile picking up.

And heating it should help, too. Just don't burn your carpet. Good luck!

This has always worked for me:
lay a 17 inch Craftsman flat blade screwdriver across the seat into the pivot screw.
Get out your 3/8 inch open wrench, fit it over the shank of the screwdriver and turn - a couple of whacks with a hammer on the open-end wrench should loosen the screw.

I used a 1/2" drive 3/4" wide Drag Link. I had to grind it down a bit to fit in the slot but it worked great. Cost is about $10

use this (see below) and tap it hard to loosen it sitting prior turning it.
it doesn't need that much leverage.

Yes, that did it flojo and lsf911. I picked some up at harbor freight. And as long as I was at it ordered an impact driver too.

Thanks guys
