    My child arranged me some cleaning work (vomiting...) and to do it properly
    I think I should remove the passenger front seat (Volvo 850, 1993, no power
    seats): how do you remove the seat? (I guess real simple...).

    If it's like my S70:
    Remove the side pocket by pulling up on the front of it, then pulling it
    forward. This enables you to get at the seat belt bolt.

    For those using these instructions on later cars with side air bags,
    there is now visible a little red protector for the side bag detonator.
    Put this over the detonator to protect it. Keep in mind that the side
    bags DO NOT use electrical connections, so disconnecting the battery
    will NOT stop them from going off if you hit the detonator. If these
    last 2 sentences scare you, then don't proceed.

    There are 4 bolts, one at each corner. Move the seat all the way
    forward, then there are plastic covers at the rear of the seat tracks
    hiding the bolts. The plastic covers just slide back. Then move the
    seat all the way back, one of the front bolts is exposed, the other has
    a plastic cover. You'll have some wires to disconnect before pulling
    the seat out of the car.

    Replace tt with t (twice!) and remove parentheses to email me directly.
