    I am getting ready to go on a cross-country trip and would like to
    remove the rear seat on my Honda CRV to set up enough space for
    comfortable sleeping. I've tried moving the rear seats all the way up
    and/or laying back the front seats so they're even with the back, but
    I'm too tall (6'2"). I'd like to set up the whole back area with a
    foam pad and sleeping bag.

    Today I looked at the base of the rear seats and the area where there
    might be bolts is covered with plastic. Not sure how to pop this
    plastic off and don't want to damage the plastic, but I'm hoping that
    there are actually nuts/bolts under there that I can use to remove the

    Before I go any further, doesn anyone know if that's a possibility and,
    if so, if how to do it?

    Thank you,

    Yes, I've done it in my 2005 CR-V.

    Move the seats all the way back.
    Remove the seat track end covers from the front of both seat tracks.
    Unlock the rear seat and tip it up, then remove the rear seat track end
    covers from the back of both seat tracks.
    Remove the bolts while holding the seat up.

    This from the Helms service manual, the pictures make it easier.

    The plastic bolt covers popped off easily while prying with a

    Bon Voyage
