Question type: Car Customization

How can I remove the third row seats from my 2018 Ford Explorer?
I know I will have to fabricate a new floorboard which I am ok with this.
Can anyone give me tips on how to do this?  Also I believe there are no air
bags or electronics installed on the seats.  My third row seats are manual up
and down.  Please advise

Step 1 Open the rear hatch of the vehicle. Step 2 Fold the head restraint of the third-row seat by pulling the strap located under it and pushing the head restraint down. Step 3 Fold the third-row seat by pulling the handle at the back of the seat while pushing it forward up to its seat cushion. Step 4 Remove all the bolts that hold the third-row seat to the floor of the vehicle using the socket wrench. Step 5 Lift the rear of the seat with the help of an assistant, then push it forward to unlock the seat from the two hooks in front that keep it in place. Remove the third-row seat from the vehicle with the help of your assistant. Items you will need Please contact me on My Whatup if you need any further help 009647504497807
