    The seat back may be held to the floor by two bolts... access these thru the trunk. Once the bolts are removed, lift up and remove...held in place on top by two tounge 'n slots.
    The seat bottom just pulls out from the rear. Grab the rear edge of the seat bottom, pull up and forward, the seat bottom will pivot on the front edge.

    What year Caddy?

    If it's '60 anything the bottom needs to come out first. Should be able to smack the very front of the seat back toward the rear of the car and it will pop out of the two mounting tabs. Then for the backrest there should be one bolt on either side, down by the floor...and hooked on tabs up top. Should wiggle right of those, or ya might have to smack it upwards.

  5. move the front seat all the way forward, schrunch down in there with your back to the back of the front seat, push real hard back and down on the rear seat bottom till it moves back about an inch, then lift up. It'll unhook. the back of the seat is held down by two bolts on the bottom, you'll see them after you've removed the bottom. After removing those two bolts, the back lifts up, like lifting a picture off the wall.

    Yep what he said and what I said still applies. Usually a well placed hard smack in the right spot is just the trick. If it's givin' ya a hard time ya might have to actually push it back. The hooks are in the floor, usually about halfway between the tranny hump and the side of the car.
