Just bought a 92 525iM. What's the process for getting to the battery and other functions under the rear seat? Any tips?

The cushion’s clips keep them down in place. Underneath the front lip pull straight up you should be able to pull the cushion out.

the clips are located exactly in the middle of the left and right seatingarea so just put your hands on the edge and give it a good pull

the way I remove the rear seat on my 1994 525i e34 is I squat in the passenger side and grab the seat from the bottom lip then lift up by pushing with my legs. I do the same on the driver side. Be forwarned that it is on there pretty snugly. I put a little grease on spring clips before I reinstall it. Makes for easier removal next time. Get the vacuum cleaner out because you'll need it to remove all the junk under the seat. Good luck!!
