    2012 GTX S Seat Removal

    One of our GTX S 155 seats has a section that has come unstitched. I need to take the seat off to take it to a shop to be repaired. So, I went to remove it, but it is proving to be difficult. Anyone out there know how to remove this seat? The two bolts attached to the piston will easily come out. The hex bolts up front (in the second picture) are the only other ones I can get to but they just spin, and I see no way to get to the back side. Am I missing something here?

    Isn't there an easier way to get this hinged seat off?

    A quick review of the shop manual for our GTX S references the lateral arms as being secured by that fastener threaded into a rubber grommet. The shop manual features a warning as follows: Do not overtighten screws ... otherwise the grommet could turn and the screw will be hard to remove. The torque listed is quite low.

    this is the grommet I believe you are fighting https://goo.gl/images/BlVJcN

    can you get a pick into the flange of the grommet onto the backside to apply some resistance to rotation?

    Thanks, got it off finally and off to the upholstery shop to have the seat repaired. Looks good as new. Yes, those rubber grommets were a pain to get to and destroyed getting them off. Good thing they are cheap to replace.
