Howdy,
I have recently purchased '05 191FS with a cut on one of the rear seat bottom cushions. I removed the seat back assembly and finally the whole rear platform but I can't see how to get to the fasteners that hold the cushion to the platform. Does anyone out there know the trick to removing them?
Thanks,
Ed

Are they not just held on with snaps? Not really familiar with the 191FS, but all my seats cushions are held by snaps. They ARE very difficult at times to release.

Welcome Aboard Ed!
And can you post up some pictures just in case we are dealing with aftermarket some upgrades? Other than a few slip in channels for some other cushions (like on the front a Triumph 190 Bay and maybe a few 210's) most all of them are "Snap on" in design. And like Brother Mike denotes, if you do not put some wax / lip balm on the male part from time to time, they can be a real pain to get back off due to corrosion.

Hope this helps?
Dave

The forward edge should be a slip channel. The aft portion should be held down by snaps. If they haven't been maintained with an anti-corrosive, and Chapstik works great, they can corrode until they're frozen. Take a close look under the rear and see if can see a couple of attachment points. You'll have to carefully pry them off.

Lube them up when you install them.

As it turns out, the seats were installed with screws from the top into the platform into the gap between the side and center bolsters - a formula seemingly designed to result in tearing the fabric during installation and removal. They will go back on with screws from the bottom, just long enough to hold the seats in place. Placement will affect the fit of the seat backs, so that assembly should be installed first.
