I'm trying to replace the rear suspension. The problem is that the upper strut mountings must be accessed inside the car. For doing that I have remove the side backrest (the cushion nearest to the door. I've removed the seat cushion but I cannot find any bolts for the side cushion. I see the bolt for the main backrest but not for the side one. The only thing I can see is that it is a bent metal bar that is stuck in the chassis. So you have to move the cushion up in order to get it out. The cushion is fastened somehere I don' know.

I am not sure if I read you correct: there are 2 parts to the seat: the cushion plus the back part? I am assuming you have a problem with the back support part; one piece that is. yes? let me know what you mean by the "side backrest" , the whole thing is one piece so try to lift upward (sometimes hard to lift) to release it from the 2 clips/hooks holding it in place. Good luck
