I have a 98 M3 conv with non-folding rear saet and cannot figure out how to remove the back rest portion of the seat. the bottom is on the cliups that just pop out. The benlty says remove the head rests first. These don't even seem to move up or down, and then it says to remove 2 bolts behind the center arm rest. there is no center arm rest??

on my 1990 you have to remove the bottom seat, then at the bottom there's i think 4 bolts, 2 on the outsides, 2 in the middle. I'm pretty sure they're nuts, you lift the bottom outwards so that it has some play swinging towards the front. then take out the head rests, just lift up hard, you'll also have to take off the caps underneath the head rests. from there, just use some elbow grease to lift the set upwards and it should come off. So the motion is pull out slightly outwards from the botom, then lift upwards ( parallel with the angle of the seat itself, because it's hooked in there.

hope that helps, i'm going off memory, and haven't done it for a couple years now.
