Default 2002 Accord back seat removal - how?

I am trying to repair the antenna which was severed beneath the back
seat. We pulled the clips and lifted the seat partially out but there
is something holding it in the center and I can not figure out how to
get it all the way out. Affter the bottom of the seat is out I will
need to remove the upper portion of the seat as well. I know there is
a bolt on each side - are there some hidden ones around the pass
through I need to remove also?

Thanks for the help!

Chris.

I do not know if this will help or not, but it took me a long time to
figure out how to get the bottom part of the back seat out of my 1993
Honda. After pulling and prying various parts, I finally discovered
that the back was just held down by the back rest foam. Nothing else.
So, on my Honda, one just reaches under the back rest, grabs the back
of the seat, and lifts. The foam pulls up past the back rest and side
bolsters then rotates up, which frees it from the clips at the front.

This exposes the bolts holding the bottom of the back rest in place.

Hope this helps.

Diagrams at www.slhondaparts.com might clarify if there are any other
clips or bolts.

Not specifically familiar with your generation, but at least some of these
cars require the seat BACKS to be removed FIRST. At that point the center
bolt at the rear of the seat cushion is exposed. You remove that, and the
cushion pivots up and forwards, releasing the hooks at the front.

In such cars, if you "pop" the clips out of their holes, you will damage
the flimsy wire, or risk pulling it out of the foam.

Here are pics of my car:

The center peg is shown in P4280018.JPG.

Usually one side (right side?) has bolts on one side only, hidden by
upholstery. Remove those, then you pull the inboard edge off a center peg.
The bolts for the other side are exposed.

Push down in the rear-middle of the seat cushion and peer in the gap thus
left between the seat back and the cushion. You should be able to see the
bolt in the middle, if there is one. And if there is, then the method I
described should work.
