3rd Row Seat Removal

The image below shows the right 3rd row seat removed.

The handle in the top-center of the seat bottom, releases the 2 pivot arms (pointing up vertically in this image), and the seat is removed.

The seat is reinstalled by inserting the pivot arms into the 2 pivot slots on the side of the cargo area (wheel wells), the only difficulty I have experience with this operation is getting the sliding pivot slot covers to line up. As with most other operations on the seating in this vehicle everything latches solidly with good audio feedback (clunk!).

Each seat weights over 35 lbs (>16kg) so some care is needed when "wrestling" the seats.
