Default Seat Bottom Adjustable track

Can the seat bottoms on ERA cars be removed without removing the entire seat?

If I recall correctly, they bolt directly to the seat bottom, then the entire assy. bolts to the floor.

Thank you, That's the conclusion I came to as well, just wanted to check before I take the seat out.

The bottom seat cushions easily lift out. The remaining seat frame and seat backs are one piece which are bolted directly to the floor and come out in one piece.

On #782 they do not come out. Mine has the original style rubber bladder suspension. It’s possible their earlier seats had removable seat cushions.

Older ERAshad removable seat bottoms. 755 did not. Not sure when the switch was made.
