Hi
This is my first official post I joined to gain knowledge on DIY as I have none and come across this post for vehicle issues, which right now is what I need help with, my daughters work keys have slipped down the seatbelt holder on the rear seat and I cannot see it anywhere, I've tried using a magnetic stick etc to try and retrieve it but no luck, can anyone advise on how I can remove the back seat base to get the key back or will it need to go in to a garage.

The car is a 2010 Vauxhall insignia

Thank you
Tony

Usually the back bottom seat pads are just held on by spring tension. I think (from memory) the Insignia has some little tabs that break when you haul the squab out and they are about £5 at a Vauxhall dealer to replace if I recall correctly. Undo the fold flat upper seat backs and bend forward slightly and the push your hand in the back gap and get right under the rear seat and pull. Do this both sides evenly until you can lift it out.

Just check firstly that there are no screwed on tabs under the front edge, as I say I am doing this from memory.

do the back seats fold down ? iirc there should be a strap at the front of the lower seat squab, pull this and you should be able to move it forward/up

If not it should just pull up

Ah.. well done Flash. I remember some years back when I was doing a bit of motor trading we bought an Insignia which has a rip in the rear squab. I got a good replacement at a scrap yard and I remember breaking those bloody clips at the back getting it out. It may have been me being too manual with it :lol:

Thank you guys for the help on this as you can see hopefully I've got the seat up excuse the mess & the mastic tube that was so I could hold the seat up and get my arm in to get the key which thankfully I got.

Thank you both again
Tony

Well done, only lifting it a bit meant you did not break the clips :thumbright:

Ah that's good I did wonder if I was gonna break them but it didn't seem to take much to just lift it out of the slots at the front of the rear seat.

Thanks again

Tony.
