Default 2000 Blazer Front Seat Removal

Found a pair of black leather seats in good shape at the scrap yard.

Does anyone have a list of bolts or issues / tips removing them?

I'm assuming the new seats are from a 1998-2004 Blazer, Jimmy, or 98-01 Bravada, Envoy...or else you will have issues with bolts lining up and power supply.

First thing, is check that you can remove the T-50 Torx in the inner rear of the seats. You may have to perform the drill trick to move the power seats up enough to get to it. (youtube has some good vids)

I've run across many a good seats, but alas, could not budge those wretched torx bolts!

Use a good breaker bar, WD-40 or similar, and maybe a hammer/mallet to help break the loctite on the threads. My local salvage yard doesn't allow torches, car batteries, or anything fun that would help...hopefully yours does?

If you can get those out, you should be golden. The other three bolts come out easy with a box wrench. Just use a flat head screwdriver to pop up the little black cone trim pieces. There will be a thin, round metal piece on the bolt sometimes...thats for the trim to stick onto (or its still inside the trim). Try to keep those, or just use your old ones.

Also, if you don't have power seats currently, fish around under your carpet...should have both plugs taped down under there, on the appropriate sides.

Hope that helps.

Reading mixed things.

Fairly certain it's a T-50.
I'd bring both along, just in case.

It is a T50, I know because I broke my T50 bit at the junk yard trying to get a seat out so that I could grab the female end of the seat belt. There are 3 15mm nuts (maybe 14, I forget) and 1 torx bolt. Take a look at the picture, you can see that it is a T50.

Cool Well... I finally did it.

I found a nicer driver seat that I could actually remove.
And I got the pics to prove it.

First, I checked the torx bolt... T-50, of course. It broke loose!


Looked like someone else had tried to remove, notice the broken trim.



Then I used a flathead to remove the trim, and a 15mm open ended box wrench to take the last 3 bolts off.





Unplug the power, and boom... New seat action!




Found a new console lid for when mine goes to crap eventually.

Good day at the man mall.

Wow thanks for the pictures. No issues having to move the seat forward?

Working all weekend but have plans to check them out monday.

I got lucky, the seat was already up as far as it goes... Must have been a short, light weight person, cause it's not too broken in at all.

I'll post more pics when I get to installing them... Probably in the next few weeks.

Finally got a chance this week to try and get them out.

No luck with the torx bolt...

End up just removing the 3 regular ones then rocked it back and forth until it broke.

Quick weld and they should be like new.

I did notice the driver pin out plug had extra tabs compared to the passenger side.

Yeah, the driver side has more options... Like the memory function, for one.
