Hello again. In a few weeks I might be buying myself a bike (Fully assembled) and I was wondering how I would remove the cargo cover in the hatch? I don't see any clips or screws so I am lost. Also can you guys refresh my memory on how the 60/40 rear seats fold? Thanks, and btw pictures are welcomed. :yes:

Well all you have to do is wiggle it out of there. Pull from one side left to right or vise versa and out. The seats well pull the flap that hangs in front of the back seats towards the front. Take out the head rest and fold down seats.

Thanks, I guess the cargo cover is mounted into some kind of track.

It's spring loaded, just pull to one side and it will drop out.

The seats are the worst design ever. Mine are always hard to pull back up to put them in the normal position. The headrest brackets get caught on a bar in the seat bottom. Much fanageling and cuss words are involved when it comes time for me to put mine back up. Almost not worth it.

I saw the folding seats demonstrated by the sales guy and it didn't look that hard, on the other hand he did it and not me. :roll:

It doesn't take anything to flip and fold the seats. The key is making sure the front seats are far enough forward. I am relatively short (5'7"), so that's not a problem for me. We flipped and folded one side yesterday to bring home a new TV. Simple!

Most people don't know that the lower rear seat cushions can be removed as well.

When you lift the lower seat cushion and tilt it forward, just release the yellow tab and slide the rails out. Now you also have room in the rear footwells.

I'll admit I didn't know that. Until now. I wondered what the yellow tab was for.... :D

Flipping the seats completely flat takes about 30 seconds and is super easy.I love the 60/40 split. I can put my bike inside and leave the small seat up and flip the large one down flat. Now I can leave the 2 headrests in and just remove the lower cushion. Even easier now....

Wow the more I know thanks, and I removed the cargo cover it was very easy. Went back in just as easily.
