Seat bracket removal
 
I'm looking at taking my seats out so I can work on my flooring. Does anyone know if the screws from the bracket that bolt to floorboard have nuts underneath or can I just unscrew them. I've looked underneath and don't see bc there may be a plate over where the screw in.

they do have nuts underneath. my were rusted solid. i tried removing them without properly soaking them in penetrating oil.. i snapped two bolts off (it was on of the first things i did after getting my jeep).

needless to say the brackets are now welded on. worked out pretty well. i now have anchors to strap cargo to since i never keep my rear seat in.

moral of the story: soak them bolts

So how do I get to the nuts?

you can see them from the bottom. get in there with a flashlight

It's not under car is it?

Yes it is under the Jeep called nutserts. Nuts that are attached underneath. Should be noticeable by the pattern. Soak them with PB Blaster for a few days and see what happens sometimes you just get lucky.

Ok my main concern is if I unscrew bolts would I lose my nuts underneath but it sounds like they are attached

No they stay in place when the bolts are removed. It would be real bad to lose your nuts!!!
