IIRC just take out the headrests and the rear seat should lift out of its mounting brackets, no bolts or anything :)

Thanks for that Trickster once the rain stops I`ll give it a go ,do the headrests just lift straight out or is there a trick to them :D

You don't have folding seats do you? I think it's different if you do. Still think it's funny that BMW calls folding seats through load system...

On my saloon 318, no folding seats etc. You need to pull the top of the seat out hard! It's held with metal clips. Slide your fingers up where the seat back meets the door rubber until you are near the top and give it a good yank, then just pull the seat up and it will be out. The rear headrests are held in with retaining clips under the parcel shelf, if u need the headrests out you need to remove the 4 expanding rivets from the edge if the parcel shelf and you will see the clips. Remove these and the headrest will come out

Thanks for the new advice I`ll try it tomorrow as I tried for around an hour this afternoon and no luck ,I tried the headrests and no chance of taking them out I worked out they had pins in underneath you can feel them through the small bodywork holes in the boot,I got the sides of the seatback out but didnt really want to pull any harder fear of ripping something as it was extremely tight but now I know the top will come out I`ll give it a go, thaks for the help

once youve pulled the top of the seat of its clips,it easily lift out.

the top clips are very stiff though. one in each top corner.needs a good hard yank.
