Question How to remove the right side seat on a 2003 Jeep Wrangler - Sahara Limited?

Need to fix my 2003 Jeep Wrangler - Sahara Limited right seat. How do I remove? I found the front bolts, but not sure about the back bolts??

Easiest removal is the 4 bolts that go down into tub floor. Rear ones in my 06' are under the spring loaded covers at the back of the slide. Front ones just under the front of the seat. Whole thing weighed maybe 50 pounds to yard out and stick back in. What's wrong with the seat?

Yep one rear bolt is a torx which will require a torx bit. As Kevbz said above, it's either a T-50 or T-55 and I seem to recall it's a T-55.
When you have a choice, buy American.

Roll seat all the way forward and do the tilt thang....On rearmost end of tracks, fold rearward the spring loaded plastic cover to expose bolt of mine was torx head...I don't remember which cause I installed seat risers and they came with longer and more sane hexhead bolts.

Don't forget that the 2003 has that spring loaded piece of metal that hides the back side of the slide mechanism. Fold it down and you will see the bolts. Let me know if you don't get it and I will get a pic for you. I took mine out to remove the carpet and it was pretty quick to get at once the seat is folded forward.
