Removing the rear seat in a Honda CRV is a fairly simple process. There are a few reasons why this task may be necessary. You may be replacing the seat with an aftermarket option, or you may just need the seat out of your way while you work on other repairs and maintenance. Although the removal process may only take a few minutes, the rear seat comes out as a whole unit. This means handling the seat may require an extra set of hands, due to its cumbersome nature and weight.

    Tilt the seat forward and remove the retaining bolts with a socket wrench.
