How to Remove an Audi TT Seat

Updated July 20, 2017

The Audi TT is a compact and luxurious sports coupe that comes equipped with heated leather seats. Over time, dirt will gather around the seats and centre console of the Audi TT. In order to clean the dirt out, the seats will need to be removed. Loose change, screws and other small objects also tend to fall under the seats, and the only way to retrieve them is by removing the seats from the Audi. Fortunately, the job can be done fairly quickly using a few basic tools.

Open the bonnet and disconnect the battery of the Audi. This will prevent the airbag light from illuminating when you are removing the seats.

Remove the plastic caps on the four bolts located around the seat. Use a flathead screwdriver to pry the caps off.

Remove the four bolts with an Allen wrench. Slide an L-shaped tire iron onto the end of the wrench and turn the wrench counterclockwise.

Unclip and disconnect the seat heaters and airbag sensors located under the seat. Use a flashlight to get a better view.

Lift the seat up and remove it from the Audi.
