My wife's just bought new seat covers for her 1987 320i. I need to remove
the rear seat to be able to fit the seat cover, but I don't have any idea
how to remove the seat.
The car's users manual is in the glove compartment which has been stuck
closed for years, so I can't try and RTFM myself. Anybody has this problem
(and a fix) with the glove compartment lid being stuck? It is not locked!
grab it at the bottom front of rear seat and pull up....they just pop into
place, held in 2 places, either side, molded into underside of seat...be
strong, you *can't* break it, although it feels like something is about to
give, once it's out you'll chuckle at how easy it was to remove...cheers...

Then to remove the back - there is a large bolt on each side at the
bottom corner of the back going through a metal tab. You may
have to pull the upholstery back some to find them. Remove both,
and then gently, and slightly, bend back the tabs (towards the center
of the car). The seat back then lifts up and out. The reason for bending
the tabs is so they won't catch and tear the side panels.
